Mum’s the word with this tasty chicken recipe

Kirsten Gilmour, chef and owner of The Mountain Cafe in Aviemore, first came to the UK after winning a prize.

She spent time cooking in New Zealand, where she won a competition for trainee chefs which allowed her to travel to London.

But opening the Mountain Cafe was a big step.

She said: ‘I’d never been a boss or a head chef. I’ve spent the past 12 years learning how to
do it.’

And now that she can, Kirsten really enjoys teaching young chefs the trade.

She added: ‘I don’t just take on qualified chefs any more, one of the most rewarding things about owning the cafe is taking on kitchen assistants and teaching them to cook.’
