Martin Wishart, a chef raised in Edinburgh, has established himself firmly as one of Britain's most highly respected chefs. He learned under such successful chefs as Albert Roux, Michel Roux Jr, Marco Pierre White and John Burton-Race, taking a little bit of inspiration from each mentor over the time he worked with them and distilling it to create his own culinary magic.
