Nick Nairn will be back in the kitchen on Thursday to go head-to-head once again with two other chefs in a pop-up restaurant challenge.
Following the success of the inaugural event in August where Nick won over diners with his soup and sandwich combination to be crowned the winner, the team will don their whites once again to offer the cosy combination for £7 - with a bit of friendly competition thrown in the mix.
The one-day event will see the Back Wynd cook school transform into a pop-up restaurant, offering a choice of two soups followed by three open sandwich selections created by Nick, group executive chef for Nairns John Weber and Simon Gosling, head chef tutor at the cookery school.
Diners can choose from spiced pea, lettuce and mint or roast butternut squash, cumin and chilli soups before selecting one of the three special sandwiches created by the chefs.
And following in the steps of the cookery school’s previous pop-up, diners will be able to select their favourite sandwich offering to discover whose recipe really is better than sliced bread.
John’s roast teriyaki beef, red onion and mustard seed relish with crispy shallots will go up against Simon’s homemade flatbread with home roast Moroccan chicken, fattoush salad and ras-el-hanout.
Meanwhile Nick’s open sandwich features smoked salmon, north Atlantic prawns, hass avocado and cocktail sauce.
With the August pop-up selling out in just one hour and 20 minutes, diners are advised to get down early if they want to tuck into the treats on offer when doors open to the public from 12pm until 2pm.
The £7 menu will be operated on a first come, first served basis with the opportunity to dine in or takeaway.
