3 years ago
This episode of Scran is brought to you in partnership with Scotland Food and Drink and today marks the launch of the Scottish Food and Drink fortnight from the 5th – 20th September.

This week host Rosalind is on a socially distant tour of the north east as she chats to various entrepreneurs in Aberdeenshire about their passion for growing their businesses and why the culinary scene there is booming. Her first guest is owner of House of Botanicals,

Adam Elan-Elmegirab, who talks about a creative idea that led him to research and recreate the famous Boker’s bitters, which was first created in 1828.

Next up Rosalind chats to skipper of the Budding Rose, Peter Bruce, who tells her about his family roots in the fishing industry and the importance of continuing this legacy.

Then Hungry Squirrel Nut butter founder Susan Yule discusses how she developed her business when she was looking for an alternative to peanut butter for herself and her children.

Finally, our new friend of the podcast, chef Stevie McLaughlin, tells us how to make a restaurant classic – lobster thermidor.
