George Scott

The university of life has been a great teacher for FVC Chef Lecturer George Scott who joined the College in 2005.

He, said: "I left school and had a stab at various professions including roustabout on the shows, rigger and bondsman, before settling as a fisherman for 16 years. I also had two attempts at university studying Architecture and Energy Engineering. However, it was only when I went to Glenrothes College and did a HNC in Professional Cookery that I knew cooking was the vocation for me.

"I did various spells at different establishments including - The Sheraton Grand in Edinburgh, Balbirnie House in Markinch, The Royal Hotel in Bridge of Allan, The Seafood Restaurant in St Monans, St Andrews and a hotel in Normandy, France and gained valuable experience at all of them.

"Entering competitions has also prepared me well for being a Chef Lecturer and I have also competed for Scotland in the Culinary Olympics, The Culinary World Cup, The World Culinary Grand Prix and The American Culinary Classic. I was also Team Manager for both the Scottish Culinary Team and The Scottish Junior Culinary Team with varying degrees of success - which has stood me in good stead."

George, has vast experience in the culinary world and he reckons he has the answer to why people should visit The Gallery Restaurant. He said: " As well as having a stunning outlook, it offers a quality of food and service that cannot be equaled for the price of a lunch or dinner."
