Chris Walker, from Kirkcudbright, is part of Aldi’s ‘Three Wise Chefs’ videos to inspire people to try Scotch Galloway Beef this Christmas.
His video will premiere on the Aldi Scotland’s Facebook page this Friday, where he’ll demonstrate how to prepare a Scotch Galloway Beef Sirloin Joint, served with a hazelnut, chestnut and mustard crust, and a mushroom and Port wine jus.
Chris said: “I designed the recipe to bring a traditional festive feel to the joint.
“I was delighted to be asked to take part in this campaign. Galloway cattle are an ancient, native breed and very much part of our local food heritage.
“Galloway is a place as well as a breed, and reminding people of the natural, rural backdrop of beautiful south west Scotland is hugely important.”
Meanwhile, 2019 Masterchef finalist, Jilly McCord, who grew up in Langholm, also features in another of the videos, preparing a classic boeuf bourguignon.
Dorothy Goldie, breed secretary of Galloway Cattle Society, said: “We are looking forward to knowing that Galloway Beef will be the centrepiece of festive dinners across Scotland.”
