Born in Scotland, Andrew’s appetite for cooking was evident from a young age. The first, and still the youngest, recipient of the prestigious Roux Scholarship, he went on to train in the kitchen of Michael Guerard, one of the great masters of French culinary tradition. Andrew’s culinary skills have graced prestigious restaurants around the world, none more so than his eponymous restaurant in the famous Gleneagles Resort, situated in his home town of Perth. It is the first and only Scottish restaurant to hold two Michelin Stars. The pinnacle of Andrew’s career came in 2011 when he was awarded the title Grand Chef du Monde by Relais & Chateaux – an honor shared by only 160 of the world’s best chefs. Sadly, Andrew passed away in 2019, but the whole team of Restaurant Andrew Fairlie proudly continues his legacy.
