In this episode we are speaking with one of Aberdeenshire’s very talented Chefs Ross Cochrane who is the Executive Chef at Ballater’s The Rothesay Rooms and The Carriage.
Ross has spent the last 17 years developing his talents in hotels and restaurants in Scotland. After winning the North East Chef of the Year in 2017, he took over The Rothesay Rooms and continued to build on the restaurant’s wonderful reputation. Aberdeenshire is a produce rich and Ross works closely with local suppliers to ensure the best of the region reaches his plates.
Being able to give visitors the tough choice of what to order when visiting Ballater is something that he enjoys. It goes to show the diverse and special ingredients he can find close to the restaurant. His ambition is to continue to work with his team to establish The Rothesay Rooms on the Scottish Food map as outstanding venues. Considering they have already won North East Restaurant of the Year a few years running this shouldn’t be a tough task.
