Sea­sonal food in a nook of Scot­land

Lonely Planet (UK) - - In This Issue... -

Out­side St Mo­nans (pic­tured), one of a string of charm­ing old fish­ing vil­lages in the East Neuk of Fife, Bow­house adds to the gas­tro­nomic heft of the re­gion. This stone barn on the Bal­caskie Es­tate serves as a space for lo­cal food pro­duc­ers to bring out their best for the pub­lic in a se­ries of Food Week­ends that be­gin this March. Stop by its stalls, take in the food demon­stra­tions and sit at com­mu­nal ta­bles for shell­fish, ar­ti­san bread, cheeses and even bot­tles of chilli sauce.

MAKE IT HAP­PEN

The first Bow­house Food Week­end this spring takes places on 10–11 March. Fur­ther week­ends are sched­uled around the sec­ond Sun­day of every month this year ex­cept for June. The events are free to at­tend (bal­caskie.co.uk/about-bow­house). St Mo­nans is a half-hour drive from St An­drews or 1½ hours from Ed­in­burgh. In nearby An­struther, the Spin­drift is a B&B of­fer­ing warm hos­pi­tal­ity and el­e­gant rooms in an old sea cap­tain’s house (from £60; thes­pin­drift.co.uk).
