My night out at the Skerriers Restaurant – Edinburgh

I often say that I love spending my evenings at home, watching a movie, checking my social media accounts BUT as soon as I get invited to an event I just jump out of my comfy clothes and I’m quickly ready to party!

And this happened few weeks ago when I was invited to the a gastro night at the Dunstane Boutique Hotel which was celebrating the arrival of a newly appointed Chef Paul Hood, son of Scotland’s first Michelin Star Chef. My husband was too tired to come with me so I called a friend of ours and we went along to the lovely soiree.


We had the chance to taste quality Orcadian food presented in such a sophisticated way.


And had a lovely chat with Chef Paul Hood who is incredibly talented and a very funny guy too


And we had more canapes accompanied by Orcadian beer


Paul wish was to create traditional Orcadian dishes with a twist. And I think he was spot on because he created a new unique menu which includes decadent dishes like Orkney Crab, Gressingham Duck and Sea Bass and this succulent Roast Loin of Highland Wild Venison

Here I am having a good time with Paul Hood and Masterchef winner Jamie Scott


Thank you Posh Agency for inviting me to celebrate Skerriers new Chef and have the pleasure to enjoy great food and meet charming new people.

Will definitely need to “drag” my husband to taste Orcadian dishes soon!
