chefOur Head Chef David Friel has been running the Grill Room kitchen here at 29 Glasgow since opening in 2007.

We will be sharing some of his classic recipes for you to try at home. This week we have Piri Piri chicken caesar salad.

 

Spice up your day (sunny or grey) with a taste of this zesty Portuguese dressing. It can either take no time at all but if you want to really make the most of that flavour then marinating the chicken overnight.”
