2 Where would you take them in Edinburgh?  

For a round of golf at Prestonfield or Gullane to relax and switch off while I pick his brain. Then we’d play rounders with my sons.

3 Where would you go for breakfast/lunch/dinner?

Breakfast – a fry up and a pint at King’s Wark at The Shore. Lunch at the beach as chefs like to get outside when they can. Dinner would be at The Stockbridge Restaurant so I could experience the customer’s viewpoint and get feedback from Heston on the menu.

4 What one item could you not be without?  

Well-travelled golf clubs.

5 How would your perfect weekend finish? 

With a beach barbecue made by my partner, Jane (of course, chefs don’t cook on their day off) while watching the sun go down.
