But should you feel peckish in the middle of the night, some Scottish baking ‘treats’  are my parting gift to you. I am a passionate advocate of the excellence and quality of Scottish food and hope that by the end of this tour you will think so too!

I shall show you pictures and recipes relating to Scottish traditional fayre and give information about restaurants and cafes in Edinburgh and characterful traditional pubs in Edinburgh.
