The Masterchef Winner

Tim Anderson to prepare a beer and food extravaganza in the granite city

For as long as we can remember we have been extolling the virtues of killer craft beers and progressive exciting food. Consequently we are delighted to announce that Tim Anderson will be visiting BrewDog to design and brew his own beer and also to mastermind and help prepare a rock ‘n roll beer dinner at Musa.

Tim recently stormed to victory in arguably BBC’s best show, Masterchef (screw the losers on The Apprentice!) with a blend of Asian inspired cuisine infused with flair and often breathtaking imagination. Currently working as Manager of the brilliant craft beer bar, The Euston Tap in London, Tim’s affinity for craft beer long supersedes his TV superstardom.

Tim will also be making his first foray into brewing on a commercial scale and i

masterchef-tim-anderson-007_460t will be fascinating to see how he constructs the beer and uses flavour and how his cooking philosophy translates into our mash tun! We will release details on the beer after it is brewed, Tim has provisionally named it Mr Squirrel, the small batch will be available at The Euston Tap, on our website and BrewDog Bars.

Tim’s Beer Dinner will be at Musa Wednesday 22nd June. Starting at 7.15. Tim will be pairing some of his favourite beers paired with his own dishes. There will be 5 courses and 6 beers. The price for the dinner is £60 per head.

Musa @ 7.15 on June 22nd

Exchange Street, Aberdeen

An Extract from an article on his Masterchef Win

The 26-year-old American saw off Tom Whitaker and Sara Danesin to win the three-part final on Wednesday night after his experimental dishes had judges John Torode and Greg Wallace praising his brilliant cooking.

In his final three course meal for the judges, Anderson cooked a starter of three burgers, a Japanese noodle main with truffled lobster and a selection of British puddings for dessert. 

On being crowned the youngest MasterChef champion ever, Anderson said: ‘It is such a good feeling. I'm very proud of the accomplishment and I'm just so glad that John and Gregg liked my food. 

‘Tom and Sara are outstanding cooks and I never really thought I had a chance to beat either of them. 

'Looking back on all the amazing cooks that left before me, it is really quite humbling to have come out on top. Humbling but super awesome at the same time.’ 

Torode praised the 26-year-old after the decision, declaring: ‘I think all three were amazing, but Tim was in a different world altogether. 

'He had influences from Norway, Japan, America, Australia and the UK. That all coming together gave us the best culinary explosion that we've ever seen in MasterChef.’
