As the annual celebratory tribute to the life, works and spirit of the great Scottish poet Robert Burns continued at home, the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa in St Andrews took a flavour of the great man to Sweden.

The Old Course Hotel has just hosted a traditional burns supper at the St Jörgen Park Resort in Gothenburg.

The food was prepared by none other than Scotland’s Young Chef of the Year, Ross Marshall – Head Chef of the resort’s award winning Road Hole Restaurant.  

The event in Gothenburg on the 30th January saw Ross prepare a Scottish feast for some of the top golf and finance journalists, and was run in partnership with “English at St Andrews” (EASA) and United Events.

Daniel Pereira, General Manager at the resort, said that everyone had been looking forward to taking some Scottish culture and heritage to Sweden and showing them all that is great about Burns Night.

“It is such a unique celebration and who better to prepare your Burns Supper than Scotland’s Young Chef of the Year!” he said.

The resort also be celebrated in their home country with Mark Gardner and Deborah Luna Rose from the resort attending a Bowmore Whisky event.

In addition, the resort boasts a bar which attracts whisky aficionados from around the globe to sample the stunning selection of over 200 whiskies.  

The iconic Road Hole Bar, overlooking the famous Old Course, represents every operational distillery, and many mothballed ones.
