Scot Paterson is the newest chef de cuisine for TĪNG restaurant in The Shard. Originally from Newcastle, Scot previously held the role of head chef at the Chess Club London. During his early career as sous chef for Dukes London, he gained a three AA Rosette listing and was responsible for the opening of the restaurant 36 by Nigel Mendham. While working at Dukes, chef Scot reached the finals of the TV series MasterChef: The Professionals.
On working in London, Scot says “My inspiration for recipes and dishes comes from a love of finding new ingredients and exploring new cultures. We are very lucky to be surrounded by so many great suppliers and growers who provide us with seasonal produce that they themselves are truly passionate about. The produce we use is some of the best in the UK and the freshness and quality of the ingredients really counts. They don’t call this area a food lover’s heaven for nothing!”
We found out what Scot’s first memory of food was, the recipes he can’t live without, his desert island dishes and his dream dinner party guests.
