Bowhouse unveil local chefs and food producers to appear at the inaugural Bowhouse Food Weekend in St Monans, a free to attend indoor food festival, taking place this weekend (22nd-23rd July).
Fife chefs and food and drink producers are set to take part in cooking demonstrations showcasing their favourite local ingredients. On the menu will be a vegetarian carbonara, sea trout with mussels, and a lemon posset. The cookery theatre, run by the Hospitality and Cookery team from SRUC Elmwood, will be joined by guest appearances from The Adamson and The Gothenburg Experiment. Nestled in lush St Monans’ countryside, Bowhouse will host a weekend celebration of the finest food and drink to try and buy, with options ranging from fresh produce to hot food, sweets and treats, gin and prosecco and local crafts.
Part of the Balcaskie Estate, the picturesque barn conversion aims to provide the Kingdom with an all-season destination for inquisitive foodies to explore Fife’s natural larder. It will also provide an inspiring space for food businesses to create their produce,
whether that be jams from soft fruit grown in nearby fields, wild game or rape seed oil harvested locally. Adding his support to the event, Geoffrey Smeddle from the Peat Inn in St Andrews said: “The East Neuk is an exciting and diverse area for food and drink and the development of The Bowhouse is exactly what is needed to connect our local producers with local (and hopefully not so local!) food lovers.”
Toby Anstruther, founding member of Food from Fife added: “This new initiative aims to replace a missing link in the food chain from farmer to consumer by providing dedicated space for producers as well as a large, covered market where food makers and growers
can showcase their produce.”
Free to attend, Bowhouse Food Weekend will take place from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd July. Further details can be found on Facebook, Twitter and
