New Chef Appointed

The RFYC Council is pleased to announce the appointment of Ian McGhie as the Club's new Chef. He is currently the Head Chef at the Cawdor Tavern and before that held the position of Head Chef at the Golf View Hotel, Nairn.

In line with the strategy previously announced Ian will be concentrating on catering for Members and on running the Piers Cafe which will reopen with Ian in charge. Bar management and the role of Club Manager will be carried out separately by a person appointed specifically to undertake that work.

Ian plans to begin work at the Club on Monday 8th May. I am sure that Members will give him a warm welcome and their full support as he seeks to revive catering at the Club. To give you a taste of what to expect he has provided the following sample list of dishes from which the menu during May is likely to be selected.

To ensure that you do not miss out on the culinary renaissance please make a reservation by telephoning the Club on 01309 690247. If there is no answer please leave a message and it will be picked up.
