BBC Good Food Show Scotland

The BBC Good Food Show Scotland is returning to the SECC once again on, 6th – 8th November, at and bringing with it a host of famous faces and hundreds of exhibitors and producers.

Plus some of Scotland’s best producers will also appear at the Show in the popular Producers’ Village.

BBC Good Food Show 2014

Here are a few photos from last year’s BBC Good Food Show Scotland when I met up with the lovely Christina Conte of Christina’s Cucina, not forgetting Paul and Mary.

The Producers’ Village is one of the most unique attractions at the Show packed full of local and artisan speciality food makers. The area gives thousands of visitors the chance to meet exhibitors who pride themselves on the quality and provenance of their produce with the chance to sample and buy their wares.

Companies exhibiting at the Show, include:

Amhuinnsuidhe Castle Estate products

Amhuinnsuidhe Castle Estate products – Isle of Harris

 Amhuinnsuidhe Castle Estate is renowned as one of the finest spotting estates in Scotland, offering excellent fishing and field sports. But not everyone is able to experience the escapism that comes with a trip to Amhuinnsuidhe and so instead they bring a taste of our pristine wilderness to your table. They produce locally reared smoked salmon from the coast of the island and venison from the Harris Hills, as well as hampers utilising the very best of Hebridean produce. 

To find out more about their products and business, please visit: www.amhuinnsuidhe.com

 

Summer Harvest-8080244

Summer Harvest Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil – Perthshire

The family at Summer Harvest has been farming the green hills of the Strathearn Valley Perthshire for over 130 years, the last fifty of them on Ferneyfold Farm just ten miles north of Gleneagles between Perth and Crieff.

Everything needed to make the perfect bottle of Summer Harvest is found on Ferneyfold’s 400 acres – they grow all of their own crops,  press all of their oil and  watch every finished bottle leave by the same farm road  used to reach the barns and the fields.

Every bottle of Summer Harvest contains a little bit of Perthshire and a great deal of Ferneyfold love and attention.

Truffled Mashed Potatoes

I’m already well acquainted with the delicious and healthy rapeseed oils from Summer Harvest.  I particularly like the Oak Smoked Oil, but recently tried the Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil with White Truffle.  I’ve had truffle oils before and not been terribly impressed by them as I felt they overpowered the food I had prepared.  However, I am really enjoying this oil, I drizzled a teaspoonful over a dish of mashed potatoes and it transformed them into a really special accompaniment to a baked ham.  You can find them at Stand C47 of the BBC Good Food Show Scotland. 

Butterscotch Fudge

Ochil Fudge Pantry – Falkirk

Ochil Fudge Pantry was started by a Scottish Lass and a Yorkshire lass, when one day they found a tin of condensed milk in the back of a cupboard and decided to make some fudge and found everyone loved it. Since then Ochil Fudge Pantry was born. They hand craft proper fudge in small batches, with every batch being hand beaten to Ochil Fudge smoothness.

Chrystal's Shortbread

Chrystal’s Shortbread – Glasgow

Started eight years ago, equipped with a very old family shortbread recipe, they started selling shortbread at a local farmers markets, for a bit of extra pocket money. Since then, the business has bloomed and Chrystal and her husband now work full time on Chrystal’s Shortbread, they also sell internationally. To find out more information about the product and business, please visit: www.facebook.com/Chrystals-Shortbread

    My favourite TV chef is Heston Blumenthal. I would never make anything he creates but to watch him is spectacular.
