Edinburgh Chef of the Year partners with Scotch Beef and Innis & Gunn to create alternative Burns supper recipe

Paul Wedgwood, Edinburgh Chef of the Year and Head Chef at Wedgwood the Restaurant, Edinburgh, has teamed up with Scotch Beef PGI and Innis & Gunn to put a boozy spin on the classic Burns Night supper.

The Edinburgh-based chef has paired Scotch Beef PGI with Innis & Gunn’s The Original barrel-aged beer to add a beer-braised edge to the classic haggis, neeps and tatties enjoyed on Burns Night.

The recipe, which sees a Scotch Beef fillet presented on herbed barley with a haggis, neeps and tattie terrine pressed and beer-braised in The Original barrel-aged beer, celebrates two iconic Scottish brands recognised for their high quality products and ingredients.

Claire Higgs, PR and Communications Manager at Quality Meat Scotland (QMS), said: “Scotch Beef is world-renowned for its fantastic quality and taste, so we are delighted to be combining those hallmarks with the wonderful flavours and aromas of Innis & Gunn’s The Original and Paul, one of the capital’s leading chefs.

“This recipe is part of a wider QMS Burns campaign and we can’t wait for Scots to celebrate Rabbie Burns by trying a fresh take on the iconic Burns Supper, which we’re sure will reignite people’s love for the classic dish.”

David Moule, Senior Brand Manager at Innis & Gunn, said: “The Original is our flagship and founding product and the depth of flavour provided by its unique bourbon barrel-aging process, coupled with Paul’s recipe, is going to give people a chance to taste our beer in a way they never have before.  Here’s to a barrel-aged toast this Burns Night!”

Paul Wedgwood, Head Chef at Wedgwood the Restaurant, Edinburgh, and Edinburgh Chef of the Year, added: “Burns Night is a celebration of one of Scotland’s greatest poets so what better way to commemorate it than by working with two quality-assured brands like Scotch Beef PGI and Innis & Gunn.  I hope people will enjoy having a go at creating my new take on the old Burns classic.”
