Michelin-trained chef Gordon Craig – formerly of The Peat Inn and Plumed Horse – brings his own globally inspired flavour to Edinburgh
A new travel-inspired restaurant is set to open in Stockbridge in January.
‘Taisteal’, which means to journey or travel, is the latest venture by Michelin-trained chef Gordon Craig, who is planning to serve up a smorgasbord of dishes inspired by his own travels, using the best local Scottish produce combined with elements from around the world.
After establishing Field, and Field Grill House, over the past four years, Craig is branching out on his own with a concept that he has been developing for several years.
Inspired by his adventures abroad and recipes from around the world, Craig plans to bring some of these flavours and techniques to his new Stockbridge restaurant.
Having trained in some of the UKs best restaurants, including the three Michelin-starred Waterside Inn, The Peat Inn and The Plumed Horse, Craig says he plans to create a restaurant which is accessible and attractive to all.
The chef says he has always had a passion for food but honed his skills while working under the direction of Roux Brothers in London.
He will be supported in the kitchen by Daniel ‘Sid’ James, who has worked alongside him for three years since leaving college.
