Finding inspiration is easy
.The desire to return home is often strong. So, after 22 years of travel, an Art degree, 2 decades of Restaurant experience and a young family in the bag the time had come.
Visions of the Geographer started to form in late 2016, Inspired by Asian eating habits and culture andmy dear Wife's Autie's Malaysian Curries. I have been lucky to work alongside many talented people including Dominique Mancelon - a pure Restauranteur, and Che, a Costa Rican born Chef with a real flair for global food. Both being huge influences on my thoughts behind the Geographer.
Inspiration is everywhere. Learning to channel it takes time with many false starts and wrong turns.
Opening a Restaurant with little money means you have to get creative. We hope you enjoy our "quirky décor as much as we do. Repeat visitors are sure to find subtle changes as the term "organic" doesn't always relate to just food.
Firstly named "a Highland Hawker", the title "the Geographer" was a final minute choice.
We think it suits our ethos well. A celebration of food culture and how it has travelled around the world. Indian spices are now a British norm. Cuban food trucks now dominate the American scene. We are a magpie nation but have given back to the world also - . Haggis has created a stir globally and whisky has concoquered the planets spirit market. Scottish shellfish is seen as Europe's finest.
