After building a cooking career out of a series of pop up dinners, supperclubs, and kitchen takeovers, Grant became interested in studying traditional Scottish food, via an MSc in gastronomy, and a dissertation on sustainable seafood in restaurants. After realising through this research how much Scotland has lost its connection to our own regional food, in which seafood once featured heavily, Grant was inspired to get involved in campaigning to get truly sustainable seafood back on the menu.
