Christinas Scottish Recipes Scottish Food and Drink
Happy St. Andrew’s Day!
November 30th is St. Andrew’s Day, praising the supporter holy person of Scotland. I’d like to accept this open door to converse with you somewhat more inside and out about Scottish nourishment and drink, particularly customary Scottish plans. You definitely realize I’m continually advancing a ton of nourishment from my country. Tragically, I feel numerous Scottish and British nourishments have been unfairly insulted. Numerous individuals who carry on the generalization and depict nourishment from the UK as being “awful and flat”, have never at any point ventured foot on outside soil.
One year from now will be The Year of Food and Drink in Scotland, so it will be a phenomenal method to flaunt all Scotland’s mind boggling admission and tipple!
The BBC Good Food Show, Glasgow – Scotland
You’ll recollect that I was at the BBC Good Food Show in Glasgow a month ago, and was overpowered with the variety of tasty nourishment and beverages which were accessible from neighborhood makers and organizations.
In the middle of the occasions that I was being met by the stunning and vivacious, Lotte Duncan, and talking at the VIP relax, I talked with huge numbers of the proprietors of the Scottish nourishment and drink organizations at their stalls. Each and every one of them was so energetic about making the absolute best Scottish items, from salt to frozen yogurt, to smoked fish to chocolates, and everything in the middle.

Hamlyn’s Pinhead Oats starts things out, on the grounds that this is the brand of oats I used to win the World Porridge Championship Specialty Award. Indeed, so did my co-victor, Chef Chris Young. Here we are at the BBC Good Food Show together once more, alongside the young ladies at the Hamlyn’s stall!
Hamlyn’d cereal collection BBC Good Food Show GlasgowHamlyn’s is created from premium Scottish oats, developed and processed in Scotland – 100% Scottish from seed to plant to completed item. Many of their items are accessible in the US by means of Amazon (connect above). I have my oats requested by means of membership, so I’ll never run out! I’ve been drenching the pinhead oats medium-term (around 1/2 cup oats in 1/2 cups water). The next morning, I cook it for around 8 minutes. It’s a speedy, nutritious and scrumptious breakfast. Trust me the Scots know their oats, so on the off chance that you truly need the best, I trust you’ll try Hamlyn’s out.
Tunnock’s Teacakes, Caramel Wafers and Snowballs are a portion of Scotland’s most mainstream chocolate snacks. I cherish them all! My father used to go into the bistro over the little bread kitchen when he was in grade school and have his lunch there. That equivalent pastry kitchen is presently making a huge number of teacakes, wafers and that’s only the tip of the iceberg, every week! I grew up eating their flavorful chocolate treats as a young lady. Tunnock’s is as yet a family claimed business so I was truly eager to get my photograph taken with the present proprietor!
Magnum Cream Liqueur Unfortunately, Magnum isn’t yet accessible in the US, however this delightful alcohol ought to be–not on the grounds that I’m disclosing to you how great it is, yet it simply won a gold award at the 2014 World Spirits Competition in San Francisco! It’s a magnificent Scotch whisky cream alcohol and I simply trust it advances over the lake soon, so go to their Facebook page and send them a message to get here–STAT! UPDATE: Magnum Cream Liqueur IS currently accessible in select areas of the USA!
Basically Add Chili is a splendid topping which consolidates Scottish strawberries as a sweet base for zesty bean stew peppers, and it’s great! I attempted some at the show, and was given a container to carry home to attempt and should say that it’s a fabulous thing to have in the refrigerator to zest up a wide range of dishes; it comes in gentle, wild and outrageous assortments. Just Add Chili was made by a mother who had been laid off from her activity, however the best part to me is that it is an all characteristic item and made basically with Scottish fixings. Request it at your neighborhood Whole Foods in the US.
Border Biscuits are accessible online through Amazon, here in the US. Everything I can let you know is that somebody had disclosed to me that I expected to attempt these scones (treats) during the initial segment of my stay in Scotland. Fortunately, they were at the Good Food Show! Indeed, they were correct, they were tasty, particularly the Dark Chocolate Ginger bread rolls.
Perthshire Oatcakes are made by Chris Young, who is my co-victor for the Specialty Award at the World Porridge Championships, and his exquisite spouse, Fiona. I tested a large portion of his assortments at the BBC appear. My undisputed top choice are their honor winning conventional oatcakes. You can arrange Perthshire Oatcakes on Amazon in the US. Sadly, they are somewhat pricy on this side of the lake.
Obviously there were bunches of stalls selling cheddar, dark pudding, meat items, frozen yogurt, pastry shop things and different tasty Scottish nourishment. Be that as it may, those can’t be sent out, lamentably, so you’ll need to go to Scotland to taste them. For instance…

I was very blessed to get a radiant Begg and Co. cashmere scarf as a blessing when I was in Scotland. Truly, I don’t think I’ve at any point possessed anything very as sumptuous! I am constrained to inform you regarding it, as this is one of the most finely caused items I to have at any point seen.
Begg and Co scarvesBegg and Co. was established in Scotland in 1866 (precisely 100 years before I was conceived) and has kept a similar standard of value since that time. Finding out about Begg and Co. resembled a captivating history exercise. I found out such a great amount about the organization, its measures and craftsmanship. For instance, my scarf is woven with 8 kilometers of the best gossamer cashmere yarn, and is so unfathomably delicate! What’s more, I’m not placing it in a cabinet to spare it for an extraordinary event I wore it in Scotland with my waterproof shell, and have been wearing it here in Southern California including my jean coat to night wear. It’s so flexible.
