Falkirk pupil’s fiery dish wins Commonwealth Burger challenge

A “Scotch Bonnet” burger described by judges as “delicious, healthy and very Scottish” has lifted the top award in a “Commonwealth Burger” competition run by Quality Meat Scotland (QMS).

The three finalists in the nationwide competition battled it out at the Royal Highland Show.

BBC’s The Voice contestant, Max Murphy, also British Judo Champion, announced the overall winner from 12 year old Eve Cattanach from St Mungo’s High School in Falkirk.

After working with local Scotch Butchers Club butcher Rod Gillie from Thomas Johnston in Falkirk to refine her final recipe, Eve beat off tough competition.

In addition to her burger being sold in Scotch Butchers Club member shops across the country in the run up to the Commonwealth Games, her school will also receive a £250 voucher to spend on Scotch Beef and Lamb PGI as well as Specially Selected Pork.
