Almost next door to Wedgwood Restaurant, Edinburgh there’s two new faces on the block, lovely women Beth Edberg and Fiona McEwan who run Cranachan & Crowdie.
Uniquely Scottish Products
This shop is certainly unique in Edinburgh and could be in all of Scotland. All the products on sale are made in Scotland. Not just some, but all of them.
Caroline and I greatly enjoy going to the Speciality Food Fair each year, but one of our frustrations is having discovered some great products, it actually tracking them down again. So I was delighted to find many of our favourites on the shelves. There’s a particularly strong (!) chilli section including flavours from Simply Add Chilli and Trotters Independent Condiments to name but a few.
In the cold cabinet there’s a myriad of fresh cheese, meat and some amazing smoked salmon from Uig Lodge.
And who couldn’t be intrigued by a product call Puffin Poo? This is actually a very more-ish sweet including chocolate, crisped rice, marshmallow and hand-rolled in coconut from the Shetland Fudge Company.
And the best bit? There’s plenty of opportunities to taste the products before you buy.
So who should drop in?
- It’s ideal for people staying close by in one of the many holiday apartments to gather ingredients for breakfast – their range of cereals includes many gluten free varieties.
- It’s great for people wanting to take a quality Scottish product back home with them (extra wrapping can be provided).
- It’s great for the cook looking for ingredients.
- It’s great for impromptu picnics should the weather cheer up to.
So do drop in and say “Hi”
