Nick Nairn (born 12 January 1959, Stirling) is a Scottish celebrity chef. Nairn has been a regular chef on BBC's popular Ready Steady Cook since the first series in 1994 and in 1990, he became the youngest chef to win a Michelin star in Scotland. A self-taught chef, his attempts to master the culinary arts resulted in the creation of two restaurants – Braeval near Aberfoyle is still in business, however, the other in Glasgow, called Nairn's is no more.
He has presented three BBC cookery series, all with accompanying books. In 2003, he sold his restaurant in Glasgow to concentrate on Nairn's Cookery School and a catering business and to spend more time with his family. He defeated Tom Lewis in the Scottish heat of the BBC television series Great British Menu.
