If you are ever in Edinburgh, Scotland (perhaps a good base to start hiking the notorious “Whisky Trail”), then look up my friend from culinary school, Campbell Barbee. He and I attended Le Cordon Bleu together, Campbell luckily stayed in the U.K. for more experience. He can be found currently at Herbie of Edinburgh (online at www.herbieofedinburgh.co.uk) or you can look him up on his own site at www.campbellbarbie.co.uk. As always you can also use the link of the right of the page.
