John Ross Jr at Contours of Elegance

The Palace of Holyroodhouse – The Queen’s official residence in Scotland – is set to welcome the fourth international Contours of Elegance event this year and John Ross Jr is delighted to be featuring on the menu.

The event, running from 4-6 September, will see 60 of the world’s rarest historic cars descend on Edinburgh all in the hope of receiving the title of ‘Best in Show.’

Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Bentleys are just some of the iconic brands taking centre stage. They’ll be showcased alongside hundreds of fine motorcars, many of which will be making their first appearance in the UK.

Together with the stunning display of historic cars, visitors can enjoy a range of fine dining opportunities including afternoon tea and a gourmet picnic lunch featuring John Ross Jr products.

The Holyrood chefs have worked hard to develop a great menu including selected John Ross Jr products. Here’s what to expect:


John Ross Jr smoked chicken salad with smoked pancetta, baby gem lettuce and a parmesan and buttermilk dressing.


Assiette of John Ross Jr smoked fish, including Hot Smoked Trout, Hot Smoked Salmon and the award winning Tea smoked salmon with Lapsang Souchong tea. This will be accompanied by a zesty new potato and chive salad and a charred broccoli and courgette salad, with peas, green beans and a green goddess dressing, all served with rye bread and salted butter.


Mixed seasonal berries with lightly whipped cream and shortbread biscuit.

It is set to be an exceptional event attended by car enthusiasts from around the world, all set against the stunning royal backdrop of Holyrood.
