DAVID and Victoria Beckham enjoyed a meal cooked by Michelin starred Scottish chef Tom Kitchin during a visit to Scotland this weekend.

The high profile couple were joined by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and his wife Tana, who are long-term friends.

Beckham is as ambassador for luxury whisky label Haig Club, with whom he has partnered to launch a whisky of his own.

The former footballer is often seen out with Ramsay and, at one point he even considered a joint restaurant venture with the famously hot-tempered chef.

But it was Tom Kitchin who must have felt hot under the collar with his stellar guests that included that also included Pop Idol entrepreneur Simon Fuller and Jimmy Choo.

 The Scottish chef who became the youngest winner of a Michelin star in the world at the age of 29 tweeted a coupe of images of the meal for his famous clientele with the accompanying hastag #nopressure.

 When you are cooking for one of the most famous sportsman in the world, his superstar wife and a fellow chef who has been awarded no less than 15 Michelin stars you can understand his nerves.

But the guests appeared to be delighted with their meal that included lobster and a strange looking blue dish.

The intimate seven-course dinner consisted of hand-dived scallops baked in the shell served with a white wine and wild herb sauce, half Newhaven lobster cooked a la Plancha and finished with escargot butter, saddle of Gilmerton house row deer served with seasonal autumn fruits and Haig Club Panna Cotta with Scottish thyme shortbread – created by Ramsay.

Haig Club is one of the many luxury brands David has associated himself with and he has jetted into Scotland several times this year for promotional filming.

A few months ago he was spotted in the Highlands where he was filming an advert with director Guy Ritchie.

Announcing his partnership with the Diageo brand earlier this year, he said: “The House of Haig has a rich history and I’m proud to be working at the heart of a home-grown brand which has built an incredible heritage over 400 years.

“Working closely with Diageo, we look forward to collaborating on Haig Club, valuing and treasuring the Haig traditions while reinventing this whisky for years to come.”
