The Princess Royal joined youngsters cooking in the Scotch Beef Children’s Cookery Theatre at the Royal Highland Show recently.
During a tour of the Discovery Centre, the Princess, who is also patron of the Scotch Beef Club, enjoyed watching pupils cook simple, delicious dishes using Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork in the theatre.
Among those she met and chatted with during her visit was Sarah Walker from Whithorn, a student at Queen Margaret University who is studying nutrition. Sarah was one of a team of volunteers assisting the Royal Highland Education Trust and Quality Meat Scotland with the children’s cookery experience.
The cookery theatre saw 1000 children take free cooking lessons at the show as part of a joint Quality Meat Scotland and Royal Highland Education Trust initiative.
Among others who joined the action in the cookery theatre during show week were celebrity chef Nick Nairn and Scottish Secretary of State Michael Moore MP.
