TV chef and butcher partnership raises healthy eating awareness

A partnership between Scottish Q Guild butcher S Collins & Son and Irish celebrity chef Adrian Martin has helped raise awareness of healthy eating through a cookery roadshow.

Stewart Collins, managing partner at S Collins & Son in Muirhead, invited Martin to visit and give cookery masterclasses to children across a three-day programme. The chef, who presents Chef Adrian The Craft Butcher, visited six primary schools and three secondary schools across the region.

He also presented at two public cooking demo fundraisers: one at Stepps Parish Church, Glasgow, which raised 900 for the church roof fund and one at The Knights of St Columba which raised 200 for The Craighalbert Centre in Cumbernauld.

Collins said: Young people and their teachers, along with adults at the sell-out evening sessions, all said they learned a great deal, not only about cooking and healthy eating, but also about the value of using recipes that utilise top-quality locally produced ingredients and meat products, an ethos that remains integral to the S Collins & Son philosophy.

He added that they were planning a return visit by the chef later this year.
