Tony Singh will be baking bad at The Old Bakehouse

Tony Singh’s new restaurant at The Old Bakehouse in West Linton is reaching fruition. All being well, Tony should be welcoming his first guests from next week.

He has posted a sample menu and, rather than being overly cheffy, the dishes look just the sort of familiar, comforting food that most people want to eat.

Tony’s spiced lamb bhangra burger is always a winner while the breast of duck with an Asian broth and spring greens sounds very summery.

Curry of the day

Having said that, it will take some convincing for this blogger not to investigate the curry of the day.

The new kitchen has a charcoal-fuelled Josper oven fitted so diners can also order steaks and fish flavoured with the Josper’s distinctive, smoky tang.

Tasty new book

The Leith-born chef is also hard at work promoting his new Tasty book at the moment. Billed as food that ‘gives you a hug and makes you smile’, it is on sale now.

Tony’s chirpy face has long been a familiar feature of Scotland’s food scene but he has buffed up his UK profile of late with appearances on the Great British Menu and The Incredible Spice Men with Cyrus Todiwala.

The Record have a good interview with McT Singh here.

The chef will be bringing his own brand of cheeky banter and top kitchen skills to the Ideal Home Show Scotland on Monday 26th May. He will be rocking the Super Theatre from noon.

As it happens, we have a rather tasty Big Deal on Ideal Home Show Scotland tickets: £14 for two tickets and remember that kids under 15 go free.
