Verity Hurding Biography – Verity Hurding Wiki
Verity Hurding is a professional chef from the Isle of Skye, Scotland. She is a contestant in the 2023 series of MasterChef: The Professionals.
Chef Verity’s first experience in a professional kitchen was after college when a friend asked her to help out in a pub on the Isle of Skye. With no formal training, Verity has learned on the job as well as completed stages at Noma and Inver. She now owns her own catering company Eòlach, which means ‘familiar’ in Scottish Gaelic. Eòlach is a wedding and Event Catering business.
The chef has worked across award-winning restaurants in Scotland prior to opening her own Catering and Supper Club business in 2018.
The Scotland Chef has always enjoyed working with her hands and being creative. She began working at a local inn on the Isle of Skye at 19, with a wonderful head chef who was using lots of local, seasonal produce and making simple delicious food with respect and care from scratch. From there she just wanted to learn as much as she could. Even before working in kitchens, she has always loved cooking for people.
In her BBC bio, she was asked, “How would you describe your style of cooking and any influences on it?”
Her answer was, “I’m hugely inspired by my surroundings. The natural environment in Skye and Lochalsh has a big impact on my style which I would describe as Scottish, natural, and fresh. I’m incredibly lucky to be a part of this diverse landscape and able to get some of the best produce straight from the source…directly off the boat, croft and foraged by hand.”
