The Mash Tun Team
Since completing training in nearby Elgin, Mark Braidwood began his career in London as a pastry chef at Harrods.
He remained in the city for many years, gaining experience under the guidance of requtable chefs, such as Greg Brown of the London Capital Club, the exclusive private members club for business professionals, and Andy Turner who supplies the fine dining experience for corporate business entertainment.
Mark also gained invaluable knowledge working at Brown's Restaurant in Mayfair and finally at Silver Fleet, the celebrated dining cruising fleet on the River Thames, as Operations Manager, where he controlled staff events over a fleet of five sailing venues. Mark has catered for many celebrities including Sven-Goran Eriksson and Prince Philip.
Nick Davis has been working as a chef now for over 20 years and during this time has travelled extensively through Europe and America, finally settling with his wife and family in Aberlour.
Nick has been part of the kitchen team since day one when Mark and Karen took over the running of The Mash Tun in 2004. He has greatly influenced the Mash Tun Menu and feels very passionate about producing great quality food using only the finest Scottish ingredients.
Assisting Mark and Nick in the kitchen are Jamie Green and Gary Wark.
On behalf of all our team, we look forward to welcoming you soon to The Mash Tun!
