A Week in Awards

March 17, 2018

We’ve had plenty to celebrate this week with the national results of the Scottish Thistle Awards and The Courier’s inaugural Menu Food & Drink Awards, which is dedicated to the excellence of the culinary delights in Tayside and Fife. Something which we’re particularly proud of!

Reading the Menu’s award shortlist makes you appreciate the calibre of producers we attract to the festival with a large number of nominees having made an appearance at the harbour at some point throughout the years. Scotland food and drink is a vivacious and thriving industry and we couldn’t be prouder to represent our little corner of it here on the East Coast.

Here are some of the award winners that hopefully you can look forward to in June!

Street Vendor of the Year

The Cheesy Toast Shack


Farm to Fork Award

Ardross Farm Shop

Mixologist / Sommelier of the Year

Julie Adamson, The Adamson



Highly Commended

Wild and Smoky


Summer Harvest


The Little Herb Farm


As well as the triumphs of festival exhibitors and participants, we’re delighted to be celebrating a win of our own as well.

The Crail Food Festival was given a Special Commendation in the Working Together for Tourism category at the Scottish Thistle Awards; and fingers and toes are firmly crossed for the Scottish Rural Awards on Thursday 22nd March!

The festival wouldn’t be what it is without the exceptional quality of the producers we showcase every year, and we can’t wait to welcome them and you to Crail again in June 2018!
