With more than 20 years of experience garnered across Michelin-starred restaurants, cozy bistros, and lavish events spanning Scotland, Jersey and New Zealand, Head Chef Craig Gibb has brought a wealth of knowledge to the team at Borthwick Castle.

Craig’s secret ingredient? Local produce. He’s all about keeping it close to home, sourcing the freshest veggies and meats from nearby farms and suppliers. For him, it’s not just about the food – it’s about the story behind it. That’s why he’s all about meeting the suppliers face-to-face, forming connections that go beyond the kitchen.

If you’re an aspiring chef, Craig’s got some words of wisdom. Pay attention to the seasons, he says. ‘There’s a reason why certain ingredients taste better at certain times of the year. And don’t sleep on local produce – it’s not just good for the environment, it’s good for your taste buds too’.

With awards like Best Main Course and Best Dessert at the Scottish Chef of the Year under his belt, Craig’s talent speaks for itself. But what really sets him apart is the way he brings flavours to life, creating dishes that leave a lasting impression on anyone lucky enough to taste them.

Whether it’s a sumptuous wedding breakfast or a lavish feast to celebrate a special occasion, trust in Chef Craig and his team of experts to produce dishes of the highest quality that your guests will speak about for years to come!
