Mezze on the Move
“Visitors from far and wide visit Ghillie’s stunning, remote Highland home to experience outstanding cookery classes and hospitality. Scotland is enormously lucky to have such a natural ambassador for the industry.”
Fiona Richmond, Regional Manager, Food and Drink Scotland
Mezze on the Move is the catering arm of Ghillie’s business. Clients can enjoy a buffet-style spread of dishes at Ghillie’s remote home or she can bring the dishes to you. Mezze on the Move also caters for corporate whisky experiences and whisky events at her home in a whisky smugglers’ glen, in her traditional barn, or at distilleries, pairing food with whisky. The location, no matter how remote, is not problem as Ghillie runs this catering service from the back of her Landrover.
Using her expertise as a spice expert, Ghillie creates unique combinations, blending the flavours of different culinary cultures with locally sourced ingredients, as well as foraged plants and herbs. A forage walk and bush cooking – open fires, pit oven, smoking – can be included in the overall food experience.
Mezze on the Move was part of the winning ‘New Event’, Off the Beaten Track, at the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival 2018
Mezze chez Moi caters for small private parties who want the unique experience of dining in Ghillie’s home. For this event, Ghillie can present the dishes buffet-style so that you can keep refilling your plate, or she can present the dishes in a progression of courses and flavours, pairing them with whisky if you like.
Some reviews from international guests:
“Loved the progression of flavours – you have taken us on a memorable journey of tastes – especially the venison and pickled grapes”
“I didn’t know I would experience such nostalgic flavours of India in Scotland – I am dreaming of the apricot and bobotie! I am so happy – I loved everything!”
“The food was tremendous – tastes of the Orient came through delicately spiced – presentation was effective – great photo porn!”
“Perfectly composed flavours – excellent balance with the whisky – thank you for the gorgeous experience”

Chivas Masters 2018
For all of The Chivas Masters, the visit to Ghillie’s home was a stand-out highlight of their visit to the UK. Ghillie’s hospitality was awesome and her whole family got involved to make us feel completely welcome in their beautiful home; a totally unique and relaxing spot surrounded by endless space and the rugged beauty of the wild Scottish highlands. Ghillie’s children, Yazzie & Zeki, were as welcoming as the host, effortlessly charming our large group with their personalities, knowledge of the land, unflappable motivation and their inspirational lifestyle. Then there is the food, the variety, quality and flavours were astounding and the biggest challenge was not to keep reloading your plate. This was a truly unique and inspiring experience for all of our guests.
