Speaking about the upcoming awards international chef and TV personality Gordon Ramsay, Honorary Patron of the Scottish Spina Bifida Association, said “a few months ago, I flew to Delhi to film Gordon’s Great Escape and became an apprentice to various Indian chefs. It was a truly inspirational experience and I came across the most amazing combinations of tastes and flavours. This evening, by combining food and fundraising, you have a guaranteed recipe for success and I wish all nominees the best of luck and thank everyone who donates to my favourite Scottish charity."
