Discover The Art Of The Chefs

Phil Carnegie


Phil Carnegie grew up on a farm in Alford Aberdeenshire and started his career as a cook at the age of 17 with an apprenticeship in a small pub -“Shelly Leigh‘s Restaurant”. Inspired by his mother‘s cooking crafts, he tackled every challenge successfully and made his way into several mentionable kitchens such as the “Waterwheel Inn”, the “Lairhillock Inn” and not least in Germany‘s prestigious “Villa Hammerschmiede”. This was followed by three years with Johannes King on Sylt, after Sylt he returned to Scotland where he quickly entered the heaven of star-rated chefs. He has been the top chef in the exclusive Inverlochy Castle for more than eight years now and he knows how to excite critics and gourmets alike.


Phil‘s contribution follows his professional journey, and the sometimes-rocky path, to the heaven of stars through his dishes. In a monumental image the Scotsman stages the different phases of the development of his culinary skills and his training years in Germany. Eight different dishes are “prepared” for the viewers - among them fish & chips (pub), duck with red cabbage (Germany) and a fine dining menu (Scotland) - and he invites them to dwell in enjoyment.
