Scottish chef and restaurateur Mark Greenaway has launched his debut cookbook.
‘Perceptions: Recipes from Restaurant Mark Greenaway’ features recipes that aim to ‘defy the often misrepresented reputation of Scottish cuisine’. Author Mark hopes to challenge the perception of Scottish food by championing the world-class array of Scottish produce available.
Mark said: “This is like no other cookbook from Scotland. ‘Perceptions’ takes a fresh look at what Scottish cuisine is in a modern form. The book features some of the many world-class suppliers we have on our doorstep who I’ve been lucky enough to build a relationship with over several years, and it’s a great platform for me to tell their story as well as my own. It’s not just a book for restaurant chefs but one that can be picked up by the discerning hobby chef and food lover alike.
“Scotland is internationally renowned for its ingredients but from my experience of promoting Scottish food around the world, not always its cuisine. The perception of Scottish food needs to change for it to be recognised as a world leading food destination. This cookbook is my contribution to that journey.”
The book, published by Relish Publications, features a foreword from Scottish crime writer Ian Rankin OBE, who lives in Edinburgh.
With three AA rosettes for Culinary Excellence and named number 13 of the top 100 UK restaurants 2016 by Square Meal, Restaurant Mark Greenaway is located in Edinburgh and is recommended in both the ‘Good Food Guide 2016’ and the ‘Michelin Guide 2016’.
Mark is an ambassador for Scotland Food and Drink and played a key role in supporting the year of food and drink 2015. He works closely with Seafood Scotland and in March joined them at the Seafood Expo North America in Boston.
In April 2012 he represented Scotland on BBC TV show ‘Great British Menu’ and appeared again in the 2013 BBC TV series ‘Great British Menu Does Comic Relief’.
