Don’t miss Scotland’s national chef Gary Maclean showcasing fantastic Aberdeenshire produce from his kitchen in association with QMS in the videos below

We were so looking forward to a buzzing and popular EQ Food & Drink Pavilion again at the 2020 Turriff Show. This would have been a superb showcase of a wide variety of local producers offering a wonderful and diverse range of tasty food and drink.

The much enjoyed QMS cookery theatre would have been back with butchery demos and skilled chefs making the most of the food we have on offer.

We had been excited to be welcoming Gary Maclean – Scotland’s National Chef and past MasterChef winner to the stage at Turriff and we are delighted that he will join us in 2021 instead on Sunday 1st and Monday 2nd August.

In the meantime, we thought that you would enjoy watching these QMS recipes featuring local ingredients created and demonstrated by Gary and hopefully then be inspired to cook them and other recipes at home with some of our local ingredients.




Visit the EQ Food and Drink Pavilion where we will be showcasing producers from throughout Aberdeenshire and beyond. 

A real haven for you foodie lovers, the marquee will offer you the chance to discover, sample and buy some delicious products as well as learn some top tips in the cookery theatre, sponsored by Quality Meat Scotland.

2019 Exhibitors included artisan yogurt makers, rora dairy; homegrown meat producer and farmer, Louise’s Farm Kitchen and The Teasmith, Scotland’s first gin makers to distill with hand-picked tea.

We look forward to welcoming all the producers to the 2022 Show.

This marquee will again be jam-packed and oozing with flavours and smells – you won’t be able to walk past!


Whilst watching the demonstrations visitors can also enjoy some tasty offerings from the EQ Food and Drink Pavilion’s ‘coffee shop’, being run by local caterers Hoodles.

We will have some fantastic catering facilities located in the catering marquee where you can sit down and enjoy a selection of freshly made hot and cold dishes.

For those wanting to eat on the move, there will be many refreshment vans located throughout the showground.
