Scottish street food vendor Scoff has created an inventive new way to enjoy tattie scones - as wraps stuffed with delicious fillings.

Owner Laura Ferguson started Street food stop Scoff three years ago, taking up regular guest slots at the Portobello, Balerno and Leith markets.

The street food enthusiast quickly devised the exciting new way to use tattie scones not long after.

“I noticed there was a gap in the Scottish street food scene for Scottish street food. I wanted to change the perception of Scottish food as being deep fried and bland. I also wanted to create something new – put a twist on Scottish comfort classics and adapt them to be street food friendly.

“That’s when I came up with the idea of turning the much loved tattie scone in to a wrap. It was a ‘eureka’ moment.

“One of the first fillings I thought of was a Cullen skink stew – the potato is in the wrap, and it’s filled with smoked haddock, leeks, cream, chives and crispy onions.”

It seems the wraps are a massive hit with customers and the Cullen Skink filled wrap was even picked as a finalist in the World’s Tastiest Sandwich by Foodie Hub for their World’s Tastiest Feast awards last year, alongside dishes from New York, Caracas and Seville.

The stand also do a roaring trade in other Scottish favourites, which Laura says are now as well known as the tattie scone wraps: “Our black pudding rolls with onion and berry gravy are very popular; as are classics like ‘Nana’s stovies’, haggis neeps and tatties, and beef and beer stew with mash.

“We also do delicious portabello mushroom rolls with blue cheese and caramelised onion. Even committed carnivores love them.”

Though Laura says Scoff do mainly focus on Scottish foods, they do also occasionally do wraps with international flavours, such as massaman curry, lamb kofta and tzatziki.

The food stand also like to put some seasonal twists on their recipes and say one of their more popular wraps in December is their Christmas Dinner wrap which comes filled with turkey, bacon lardons, stuffing, carrots, sprouts, crispy skin and cranberry gravy, our mouths are watering just thinking about it.

Should you fancy trying the delicious wraps for yourself you can check them out the Penicuik Market on the first Friday; Portobello on the first Saturday, Balerno on the Second Saturday and Leith on the third Saturday of the month.

Scoff will also be heading along to Pitt Street on the 22nd of this month, Stockbridge Market on the 20th November and Craft Beer Revolution on the 24th to 26th of November .
