Festivals showcase the best of Fife’s food and drink

Fri 4 Aug 17

There was plenty of Fife food on the menu at two East Neuk festivals at the weekend.

Chefs and food and drink producers took part in cooking demonstrations and showcased their favourite local ingredients at the first Bowhouse Food Weekend in St Monans on Saturday and Sunday.

At the same time, Crail Festival was continuing with a traditional street fair which had a host of stalls, including The Toasty Cheese Shack and chocolate from Cocoa Tree of Pittenweem.

The free event at Bowhouse installed a cookery theatre run by the hospitality team from SRUC Elmwood, who were joined by guests from St Andrews restaurant The Adamson.

There was also food and drink to try and buy, with options ranging from fresh produce to hot food, sweets and treats, gin and prosecco and local crafts.

Geoffrey Smeddle from the Peat Inn said: "The East Neuk is an exciting and diverse area for food and drink and the development of The Bowhouse is exactly what is needed to connect our local producers with local food lovers."

Those with full tummies had the chance to experience something a bit different at Crail, however.

On Sunday, Crail House hosted archery sessions with archer Steve Brazendale.
