Chef Brings Michelin Star Cooking to Hamilton 

Scotland’s only female Michelin star chef cooked for guests at the exclusive launch of our latest development, Hamilton Heights, just outside Hamilton.

Lorna McNee, head chef at Cail Bruich in Glasgow, took over the kitchen of the Mitchell Garden Room show home, with sous chef Lewis McDonald, preparing a series of delicious canapes for customers who have reserved or are already living at the development.

Lorna, who was also the Great British Menu’s ‘Champion of Champions’ in 2019, put the kitchen through its paces showcasing four elegant dishes served at the West End restaurant and demonstrating how to present plates of food worthy of a Michelin star.

And we were proud to discover that Lorna already lives in a Robertson Homes property near to Gleneagles. She said: “It is the first house I bought and I have been there seven years and absolutely love it. So, to be invited to come and cook in the latest show home was an opportunity I jumped at.

“The kitchen is actually bigger than ours at the restaurant! It has lots of storage and work surfaces and the breakfast bar is perfect for food preparation and really sociable.

“Some induction hobs are inefficient but this one has been brilliant. Really fast and very hot. Just what a chef needs.

“It has all been really well thought through and it has been a pleasure to cook here, as I knew it would be. My own kitchen at home may be smaller but it is just as well planned and very much the heart of our home.”

As well as delicious food, guests were able to wander through the rest of the property and the Everett Garden Room show home next door where they could enjoy a cocktail bar, music by local musician Guy Hamilton and even have a caricature made by in-demand caricaturist Edd Travers. Younger visitors were entertained with magic and balloon modelling.

Julie Henderson, sales manager at Robertson Homes, said: “We wanted to hold a very special event for our valued customers and to showcase both properties which are wonderful, sociable homes.

“It was lovely for customers who will soon be neighbours to meet each other and enjoy some absolutely delicious food.

“Buying a Robertson Home is buying a lifestyle and the homes at Hamilton Heights are attracting a wide range of residents from downsizers to young families to first time buyers who want their forever home right from the start.”
