Neil Forbes, Chef Director of Cafe St Honoré
Neil is one of Scotland”s most passionate chefs who describes cooking as an “emotional experience that uses all the senses”. Born into a family of chefs, it was his granny”s soup that first
inspired a young Neil to get behind the stove, and inspires him still.
Like the soup, the menus at Cafe St Honoré make the most of good, honest ingredients cooked simply.
There are no gadgets or gizmos in Neil”s kitchen, just him and a team of equally passionate chefs who can”t wait to see what will be delivered each day, and what they can create from it. They
pride themselves on producing everything in-house using ingredients sourced from local producers and suppliers.
In 2011, Neil was named the Scottish Restaurant Awards ‘Chef of the Year’, he is a member of the Slow Food UK Chef Alliance and his restaurant holds Sustainable Restaurant Association 3-star champion status. He regularly demonstrates
