Tony Singh to Represent Scotland in 2012 Celtic Cook Off in West Cork
Edinburgh born Tony Singh has established himself as a leading force on the Scottish restaurant scene as co-founder of Oloroso, the highly acclaimed bar and restaurant in the heart of Scotland’s dynamic capital city.
For over 20 years, Tony has pushed the boundaries of culinary innovation, combining his Sikh upbringing with his love of Scottish produce. He first dabbled with cooking on a Youth Training Scheme at Scottish & Newcastle, which led him to Telford College in Edinburgh and the completion of an OND in Hotel Management. His distinctive style soon developed and made him hot property in restaurant circles, leading to positions with The Royal Yacht Britannia, The Balmoral Hotel, Greywalls, Royal Scotsman Train, and Gravetye Manor.
The Cook Off takes place next September. Event details here.
Take a Farm Walk at the Ballymaloe Cookery School this summer. Maybe take a course. All the info in their SummerNewsletter.
