So impressed with India’s potential, that she was offered the opportunity to gain Michelin star experience at Gordon’s Boxwood Café at the Berkley Hotel. India has since built on this experience and has worked at some of the most popular restaurants in Scotland. India brings her passion for food and creativity to the Kailyard Restaurant.
