Nick Nairn is one of Scotland's most exciting cookery talents.
A self-taught chef (he went into cookery by accident), his determination to master the culinary arts has resulted in the creation of two successful restaurants - one near Aberfoyle and the other in Glasgow, called Nairn's.
In 1990, he became the youngest chef to win a Michelin star in Scotland. His unflagging energy and distinctive style of cooking have ensured the popularity of his TV and radio appearances. He has presented three cookery series, all with accompanying books, and he also writes a column for the Scottish Sunday Mail.
He's a founder member and is also on the advisory board of the Scottish Chef's Association, which aims to promote Scottish cooking and to encourage young emerging talent. He's also an enthusiastic campaigner for fresh Scottish produce.
In 2003, he sold his restaurant in Glasgow to concentrate on Nairn's Cookery School and a catering business and to spend more time with his family.
