Cranachan & Crowdie, a favourite destination of food lovers and gift buyers in Edinburgh, is going to the dogs. On Sunday June 14, Paul Marsden of Harry’s Treats, an Edinburgh producer of gourmet dog treats, will pup up at Cranachan & Crowdie from 9:30 to 11am to offer free samples to pampered pooches and display his tasty fixings to their owners.

Cranachan & Crowdie is using the Year of Food and Drink 2015 to showcase its range of Scottish food in the shop on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. Every Thursday night from 4-7 p.m. Cranachan & Crowdie will play host to a different small and independent Scottish food supplier who will talk about their products, and offer small tastings.

Fiona Richmond, Project Manager at Scotland Food & Drink, said: “We are blessed with an incredible natural larder in Scotland, which includes some of the best produce in the world. Our produce and producers are at the forefront during the Year of Food and Drink and they are being celebrated in countless ways including food and drink festivals, food trails, themed menus and tasting events. Cranachan & Crowdie are showcasing the best of Scotland’s larder through their Year of Food and Drink weekly events which is a great way for everyone to get involved. It is fantastic that these events are highlighting so many of Scotland’s artisan producers to both tourists and locals alike.”

Other Scottish suppliers scheduled to appear include Perthshire’s award-winning chocolatier Charlotte Flower who most recently received the highest accolade at the Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards by winning Product of the Year for her Meadowsweet Thins.

The full list of guests can be found on Cranachan & Crowdie’s website, www.cranachanandcrowdie.com. All products are available at Cranachan & Crowdie, 263 Canongate, on the Royal Mile.
