Food for Thought’s chef is puffed up with pride after being shortlisted in The Food Awards Scotland.
Chef Billy Brodrick and his wife Gillian, who manages front of house, opened the Longrow South eatery on July 1 last year. They have just been announced as finalists in the restaurant of the year south west category.
Billy, 48 said: ‘It is amazing, I had many missed calls last Tuesday and they were from The Food Awards Scotland organisers Creative Oceanic.
‘The official announcement of nominees is next Tuesday July 20 and we will find out who we are up against.’
The awards are presented at a gala Glasgow dinner in the Crowne Plaza hotel on Monday August 13.
Billy has tasted success before notably at the Anchor hotel in Tarbert.
