Parliamentarians impressed by county cookery school

Iain Gray MSP and Fiona O’Donnell MP paid a visit to Colstoun Cookery School near Haddington recently and were impressed by what they saw.

Following its recent success at the Scottish Countryside Alliance Awards, the school’s owners had invited the parliamentarians to find out more about the school and have a taste of one of its cookery courses.

Mr Gray and Ms O’Donnell joined others, including Provost Councillor Ludovic Broun-Lindsay, Councillor John McMillan and Knox Academy Head Sarah Ingham, to learn more about cooking with game.

Iain Gray MSP said:

“Colstoun Cookery School is an impressive facility in a really beautiful setting at the heart of East Lothian. The experience it offers to customers is clearly of the highest quality and it’s not hard to see why it was successful at the Scottish Countryside Alliance Awards. I certainly enjoyed my brief lesson and will be more confident about cooking with game in the future, by which I mean I have never done it in my life before!”

Fiona O’Donnell MP said:

“Given the very high quality of the food and drink produced in East Lothian, a cookery school in such a fantastic setting makes total sense. The owners at Colstoun have set out to take advantage of this excellence, and I enjoyed finding out more about the school’s development and future plans. I also wish them every success at the forthcoming UK finals at Westminster.”
