Indian Mystery Currypot John Stewart Banff

Diamond daze for Banff butcher

A chicken breast infused with the exotic flavours of India has won the Best Ready-To-Cook Product in Scotland accolade for a Banffshire butcher.

The recent Scottish Craft Butchers` evaluation awards recognised the best ready-to-cook products currently available in Scotland`s butcher`s shops.

And the Indian Mystery Curry Pot entered by John Stewart Butchers in Banff High Street secured the coveted Diamond Award, marking it out as the best of its kind in Scotland.
Delighted owner Andy Grant said customer trials of the new dish had proved outstanding and they had high hopes of the product doing well in the Awards.

"We`re absolutely thrilled that it`s lifted the top award," he said. "Credit goes to our butcher Scott Gillies who was challenged to produce a product that could top our previous Gold Award winners," revealed Andy. "Everyone`s delighted that he`s done exactly that with a first class oven-ready dish."

Andy, who took over the popular butcher`s shop two year ago, said that the Diamond dish featured a stuffed chicken breast infused with Tandoori, cream cheese and finished with a Mystery glaze.
