Skye Fudge gets thumbs up from Albert Roux

Was fortunate to be invited to attend the Williamsons Highlands and Islands Food and Drink Awards 2009, to meet and greet Richard Lochhead - Minister for Food, Rural Affairs and the Environment. Along with the enterprising Williamson family, whose family business started as a fruiterers and has now grown into the Highlands biggest local wholesaler, I also shared the table Albert Roux, OBE and MaƮtre Cuisinier de France.

World-class chef Mr Roux opened his first Scottish restaurant, Chez Roux at Rocpool Reserve, in Inverness earlier this year. With Skye Fudge on the menu for an after dinner accompaniment for coffee, I was somewhat nervous to be there as it was served, and was highly relieved to get a thumbs up across the table from the delightful and charming Mr Roux.
