"The Auld Alliance (auld = old) between the kingdoms of France and Scotland was formed in the 13th century to defend against England’s habit of invading its neighbours, and it endured, on and off, for hundreds of years. The bond was reaffirmed in the 16th century when French Duchess of Guise, a.k.a. Marie de Lorraine, married the King of Scotland, James V, and brought French chefs and their cuisine to the Scottish Court. Lorraine’s daughter, Mary, became Queen of Scots as an infant when James V died, spent most of her childhood in France and was married, briefly, to the Dauphin of France.

The Alliance faded in the second half of the 16th century when Scotland’s new king looked instead to England. But the Auld Alliance and the years after left French touches on many fronts: in Scottish law, the Scots language, Parisian architecture in the New Town, and of course, on cuisine. Edinburgh has a good handful of restaurants combining French techniques with the Scottish ‘larder’ (pantry). One example: the escargot at Fred Berkmiller’s L’Escargot Bleu, sourced from the windswept sand dunes on the Isle of Barra, a remote island in the Outer Hebrides off Scotland’s west coast. They are particular to Barra and have replaced French-sourced snails, but here they’re still cooked in French style: in snail-sized chambers of hot butter, with garlic, parsley, breadcrumbs, and the tiniest specks of bacon."

"Sustainability has become another marketing point for restaurants, and rightly so! Sustainability is important but it is not a 21st-century invention." (https://www.lescargotblanc.co.uk/news/2016/1/20/fashions-fade)

We are big fans and supporters of @gorgiecityfarm. We work with them throughout the year. Over the years, they have produced numerous pigs for us; several lambs, mutton and even the odd goat every now and then.
Why not pay them a visit at 51 Gorgie Rd, Edinburgh EH11 2LA.
