Jamie Scott – Originally from Arbroath, former BBC MasterChef:The Professionals winner Jamie was inspired by his mother – Britain’s first female sous chef – and his grandmother, a keen baker. Jamie helped in the kitchen of his parents’ Arbroath pub before attending culinary college to pursue his dream of becoming a chef. After six years learning his craft, Jamie had a four year spell as head chef at Rocca, St Andrews. In March 2016, Jamie and his wife Kelly opened The Newport, just across the River Tay from Dundee. The restaurant has wowed diners both local and from afar with its wonderfully unique experience and stunning river views. The Newport was awarded 2 AA Rosettes only weeks after opening and entered in the Michelin Guide. It has also just been named AA Restaurant of the Year Scotland.
