Media release: Hardeep to host a special, one-off festive feast for the public at The Cook School Scotland

CELEBRITY broadcaster, journalist and raconteur, Hardeep Singh Kohli, is to host a special, one-off festive feast open to the public at The Cook School Scotland on Thursday 2 December.

Recently appointed an official ambassador for Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink, Glaswegian Hardeep, who was runner-up on the first series of Celebrity Masterchef, is a keen cook who is currently performing to sell-out audiences throughout the UK on his ‘The Nearly Naked Chef’ show.

At The Cook School Scotland, Hardeep will lead budding cooks through a series of classes on how to create the perfect curry, encompassing a starter, main course and sweet – and there will be plenty of time for a chat too!

Hardeep said: “I’m really looking forward to meeting members of the public at The Cook School Scotland – and particularly excited to be following in the footsteps of some of the best-known chefs in the country who have led classes there!”

Says a spokesperson: “Headed by three Michelin-starred chef, Steven Doherty, The Cook School Scotland has a well-deserved reputation for excellence within the culinary trade and the format of the day has been designed to give guests a different and entertaining day out with a relaxed, informative and fun cooking experience.”

Guests will arrive at 10am to meet Hardeep over coffee/tea and shortbread. Throughout the day, they will sample all of the dishes they make and then, at lunchtime, will have the chance to eat with Hardeep and relax with some wine.

At the end of the day, guests will be given a bag for life to take away, with an apron, folder and recipes inside.

Hardeep’s one-off festive feast for the public at The Cook School Scotland will take place amid a festive series of corporate entertainment events he’s hosting there on 30 November  and 1, 6, 8 and 9 December 2010.

Places can be booked online at or by phoning tel 01563 550008.
