Food & Drink in June

Fish and chips are one of the nation’s most popular takeaway dishes. The dish consists of battered cod or haddock deep-fried and served with chips, usually chunky strips of potato. You will find chip shops or 'chippies' in almost every town across the country, the best often found in coastal towns within sight of the fishing boats tied up in harbour.

Some fish and chip shops have seats so you can sit in to dine, but if the weather permits this is a great meal to enjoy outside, particularly if you are by the sea. Enjoy fish and chips with a sprinkling of salt and a splash of vinegar. As well as fish, chip shops often offer other tasty treats for your ‘supper’ including sausage, steak pie, black pudding and haggis.

Why not visit the Kingdom of Fife and experience food from the famous Anstruther Fish Bar, one of the best chip shops in the country. While in this region, you can explore some other culinary delights and local flavours. For something a little different, pick up unusual meats from Puddledub Buffalo, the largest buffalo farm in Scotland. Or see how the St Andrews Cheese Company near Pittenweem make their delicious dairy produce through a specially designed viewing gallery. You can also follow a Fife food trail at your leisure, a delightful way to try the best flavours and the tastiest dishes from this part of Scotland.
