Martin Wishart is an award-winning chef and restaurateur, who in 1999 established his eponymous Edinburgh restaurant. Situated in the historic port area of Leith, it was awarded a Michelin star in 2001, and has retained this accolade every year since. Following this success, Martin established a sister restaurant at Cameron House Hotel in Loch Lomond, which in turn received a Michelin Star in 2011. His most recent venture is The Honours, a contemporary brasserie in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town.

In addition, Martin heads up a highly-respected Cook School, located just a short distance from his Leith restaurant, co-ordinates private events under the Wishart's Dining moniker and regularly contributes to the Glasgow Herald newspaper.
