Happy New Year dearest Reader!
2015 is going to be a very special year in Scotland, as the official theme for the year is FOOD and drink!! Yay!
The objective is to spotlight, celebrate and promote Scotland’s fabulous natural larder and quality produce. I am really excited about the food scene in Scotland just now and this year is going to be amazing!
To celebrate the wonderful produce found all over Scotland there are different monthly categories – this month we are celebrating traditional Scottish foods. Think of our New Year traditions of steak pies and shortbread, through to Burns Night with haggis.
I’ll bring you more traditional Scottish recipes throughout the year. First though, to whet your appetite, here are a few of my own takes on Scottish classics from the Vohn’s Vittles archives…
There are some great masterclasses to aid you in your Scottish cookery skills. Here are my two favourites from the past year or so…
There are also some fantastic festivals and street food events throughout the year to help you find out more about Scottish produce. The best one, in my opinion, is Eat Drink Discover Scotland. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for this year!
If you live in Scotland please do join in with the events and discover more great Scottish produce.
Otherwise do come visit us here in Scotland for our great year of food!
