I had not ever heard of Little's in Blairgowrie and now that I have been, I have no idea why I hadn't. Why aren't more people shouting from the rooftops about it?
We all have so much choice when it comes to food. Shall we eat in or out? Where shall we eat? What shall we choose? How would we like that cooked? Would we like any side orders with that? This week, we did choose to eat at Tahini, but aside from that, the decisions were taken out of our hands and it made a really refreshing change.
From the outside, the Kingarroch Inn is everything a country pub should be, from the pristine creamy walls to the fairy lights twinkling around a rose arch.
Having walked past Torino many times smiling fondly at the Fiat 500 “parked” in the window, I hadn’t ventured inside since it replaced the Spanish tapas bar a couple of years ago.
The DCA has long been a favourite haunt of mine whether it be popping for a glass of wine and to watch a film with friends after work or for a casual supper.
On my culinary adventures across Scotland, I have eaten some spectacular food and try to always sample the speciality of the region or particular restaurant. Throughout the years, however, there is one "delicacy" that I just haven't got around to tasting - the deep fried Mars Bar. I noticed it on a menu in the centre of Dundee and I was sold - I just had to try it.
The sandy beach in Broughty Ferry is one of my most favourite places on the planet. The sand dunes, the whistling grasses and the twinkling promise of seals and dolphins all add to the magic.
It’s that time of year again when the sun gets higher and the layers of clothing get fewer.
Scotland is blessed with a myriad of independent eateries and insanely talented and creative chefs leading the way to Michelin stardom. As much as I love haggis, neeps and tatties, there is so much more to Scottish cuisine right now.
Over the years, I have been lucky enough to have been invited to some posh do’s and I am always especially excited when I hear Wilde Thyme are doing the catering because I know the canapés will be amazing. It does means there will have to be extra planning involved as I’ll clearly need to position myself close to the kitchen in order to make the most of the passing delights but the effort always pays off.
