Inga is one of our chefs at the Harris and Lewis Smokehouse. Originally from Latvia, she has a passion for pastry and her dessert menu will leave you drooling!
I am from Latvia but I consider myself Russian-Latvian.
As a little girl, I was fascinated by my mum and gran cooking and would always help out. When I was 25 I had the chance to start a chef course at a local college. I finished as the best student in the class, earning me my fist job as a chef.
I love working with chocolate and pastry, desserts are my passion!
I came to Stornoway to visit my friend and haven't left since. I guess it was love at first sight and I can't imagine living anywhere else!
The nature of the Outer Hebrides is so unique and beautiful, it makes you fall in love with the place. Living on the island is very special and every day is an adventure.
I knew it would be an interesting new venture!
I love all things desserts; avocado ice cream, red wine poached pear and anything with chocolate.
I am a visual artist and make my own jewellery. In my spare time, I also enjoy surfing and snorkeling.
Chef, Harris and Lewis Smokehouse
