More about our FIG Food hosts

Georgie Harding-Newman

Whilst living in London, before moving north in 2011, Georgie set up FIG Food. Already specialising in producing dishes with the freshest of seasonal ingredients, the move to an area with such an abundance of world-class, locally-produced ingredients has allowed her creativity to reach new heights. She creates delicious, innovative and beautifully-presented bespoke menus for events all over the Scottish Borders and north Northumberland.

Georgie has guest-cheffed at Main Street Trading Company and creates amazing game-based shoot lunches, delighting clients with her bold flavours and modern approach to presentation and plating. She says, ‘Food has always been a passion of mine. Whether creating a new recipe, or discovering a new ingredient, sharing the pure, distilled joy of simply-made, delicious food is what drives me’.

Georgie lives in north Northumberland with her husband, four children and two dogs.

Tracie Dudley Craig

Tracie started cooking professionally in 2009, after a number of years catering for private events, running the kitchen and dining room at a television production company. She has a particular fondness for French bourgeois cookery.

As well as working with Georgie at FIG, she has recently worked with chef, food writer and broadcaster Allegra McEvedy, as part of the team that relaunched the legendary Albertine wine bar and restaurant in west London.

When not in the kitchen, Tracie helps her husband run his wine importing business and writes for a web-based food magazine.

We've been lucky enough to have had some superb speakers and demonstrators at Carfraemill over the years. Most recently we welcomed Mary Kemp in 2018, Sue Lawrence in 2017 and Lady Claire Macdonald in 2016.
