Our Scottish Food Fortnight Favourites

As you may have heard, we’re all massive foodies here at LUX, and Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight may just be our favourite time of the year. As part of the celebration, we’ve shared some of our favourite Scottish foods that we just can’t resist.

Chris’s Sweet Fix

Our Chris is known to have something of a sweet tooth here at LUX, which is why he had trouble deciding which tasty treat to choose from.

Serious question though; fudge or teacakes?


Kelly’s Coffee Obsession

Who doesn’t need their caffeine fix in the morning? Our Kelly definitely relishes hers (although it does take her hours to finish one cup).

She particularly loves a coffee from The Big Red Barn based in Elsrickle.


Leila’s PYO Strawberries

As quoted by the foodie herself, “Scottish strawberries are the best”, and we couldn’t agree more! Leila adores Cairnie Fruit Farm’s strawberries, especially with peanut butter on toast.

We’ll just leave this here…


Laura’s Isle of Barra Inspiration

It’s seafood galore for Laura, following her exciting trip to the Isle of Barra this past week. Scallops, smoked fish and more.

We admit it. We’re a bit jealous.

Flora’s Delicious Dairy-free Chocolate

Who said being vegan is restrictive? Vegan Burd’s delicious dairy-free chocolate means we can all be chocoholics, with Rollaz, Crunchy, Snackurz and Yer Bound Tae being gluten-free, too.

Quite frankly, Flora can’t get enough of these scrummy snacks.


Emily’s Taste of the Sea

Hand-picked mussels, tasty Cream o’Galloway cheese, Loch Arthur meats and homemade butter.

Emily’s mouth-watering seafood dish is a triumphant celebration of Scottish ingredients.


Mhairi’s Happy Hens

Our Director, Mhairi, has rehomed hens from Homes4Hens Battery Hen Rescue and now enjoys free-range eggs at her home in the Borders.

They took some time to recuperate, but now they enjoy eating spiders in Mhairi’s garden!


Alice’s ‘to Die for’ Seafood

It’s safe to say, Alice is absolutely nuts for seafood. Whilst on holiday, she’s always on the lookout for the best seafood in town. She particularly loves lobster tail with chips at The Oyster Shed in Skye and lobster at East Pier Smokehouse in St Monans.
Alice has also delved into whisky and her palette has definitely developed, moving away from some of the sweeter Speyside expressions to Islay peat whiskies. Having been to Islay twice in the last year, she loves visiting Bunnahabhain‘s distillery for a dram, although Caol Ila was the distillery that converted her.


Jen’s Flavoursome Sushi

For Jen, it has to be sushi. She can’t get enough of the Japanese delicacy. She especially enjoys delicious miso aubergine from Kanpai!


We think you’ll agree were all pretty lucky to live in a country with such a fantastic variety of food and drink to enjoy and promote!
