New monthly menus

This marks the start of our mew monthly recipe blog working in partnership with the Cluny Bank Hotel and the Knockomie Hotel both based in Forres.

Both hotels use Macbeth’s products and each month their top chefs will be providing us with mouth watering meals you can make at home.

This first recipe is brought to us by the Cluny Bank Hotel and its chef Lloyd Kenny who runs the award winning kitchen single handedly.

Chicken Pinchitos

Pinchitos are pieces of meat on a skewer that have often been marinated. In Spain they are generally cooked on a BBQ, so with the weather perking up ever so slightly drag that BBQ out, dust it down and set the coals alight.
