Food Heroes Celebrate St Andrews Day At The Loch Fyne Oyster Bar & Restaurant
The iconic Loch Fyne Oyster Bar & Restaurant, at the head of Loch Fyne in Scotland, is promising visitors a Fyne time on 30 November as food heroes from across Scotland come together for a St Andrews Day Feast.
Visitors will be able to meet some of Scotland's best food and drink producers face to face at a special producers' market and then raise a toast to Scotland's national day with a four course meal specially created by award-winning chef, Roy Brett.
Producers like Hebridean Sea Salt will come from as far afield as the Outer Hebrides, while the artisan bakery Mhor Bread will travel from the nearby Trossachs. Diverse produce including seaweed from Mara Seaweed will be available to taste and buy. Those visiting the market will be welcomed by a traditional Scottish piper.
The St Andrews Day menu is available between 1 and 7pm and will cost £40 per person. Celebrating the best of Scottish produce, it will comprise:
Loch Fyne Salmon Selection with Soda Bread
Loch Fyne Smoked Haddock Chowder
Roast Loin of Churchill Venison with Crumpets & Red Cabbage
Little Chocolate Pot with Vanilla Cream
Coffee & Shortbread
"We want to turn St Andrews Day into a great Scottish food and drink celebration. St Andrew was a fisherman so Loch Fyne is the perfect place to celebrate this special day with our own sustainable oysters, mussels and salmon taken from the sea loch on our doorstep" said chef Roy Brett, who leads the food team at Loch Fyne.
The newly refurbished The Loch Fyne Oyster Bar & Restaurant has long been considered a pioneer of the Scottish food and drink story. The company started farming oysters in Loch Fyne in the 1970s and selling direct to the public in a nearby lay-by. The business grew over the years in line with its reputation and it is now synonymous with local, sustainable and above all, delicious produce.
