Foot Stompin’ Supper

Join us for an evening of music, food, drink and frivolity in the Crail Community Hall on Saturday 10th June at 7:30pm at our Foot Stompin’ Supper.

After some wine on arrival, the evening begins with a meal; a hearty bowl of soup accompanied by artisan bread from Barnett’s Bakery. We follow that up with a chilli pot from the local Crail butchers, and pulled pork served with salad, slaw and wee potatoes. All finished with ice cream from award-winning Jannettas Gelateria.

Dinner is worked off on the dancefloor, with music from local rhythm and blues band The Taysliders. Other entertainment includes a Tasting Quiz with fabulous foodie prizes to be won.

Tickets cost £20 for the evening and include your meal. So book your place at the table for the Crail Food Festival Foot Stompin’ Supper.

Family Fun at Crail Food Festival

Children’s Activities

The 7th annual Crail Food Festival has another exciting programme of children’s activities to make sure everyone has a fun-filled weekend.

Marine Hotel

Saturday & Sunday

There is plenty to entertain younger visitors to the Crail Food Festival at the Marine Hotel.

A family cafe from Nibbles ‘n’ Giggles which will have indoor and outdoor seating (weather permitting.) Children will be able to choose their own picnic lunch box to enjoy.

The team from Forgan’s will be on face painting duty, and there will be a special bookstore with children’s stories from through the ages.

Throughout the whole weekend there will be the exciting children’s ceilidh, along with traditional Scottish stories from Hamespun Tales – all taking place at the Marine Hotel.

Through the village there will be a treasure trail to encourage curious minds to explore the festival. Visit the stalls to find the hidden letters and discover the mystery word! The treasure trail will be available to pick up from selected venues across the festival.

Crail Harbour

Sunday

Sunday is the return of the now infamous Harbour Lunch.

To complement the lunch we have a list of fun and games for the kids from the Crail Food Festival Children’s Champion.

Don’t worry about the sand and take part in the scavenger hunt on the beach. There will be a table with arts and crafts, parachute games and of course a sandcastle competition.

Crail Food Festival 2017 promises to be a fun-filled weekend for the whole family!

Adam Newth answers the Citylicious’ Quick Fire Questions Chef-Adam-Newth-to-open-first-restaurant-The-Tayberry-in-Dundee_strict_xxl

Why a chef?

Quite simply it’s the best career in the world! There are no restrictions, you get out what you put in! Endless opportunities to travel the world, it’s artistic, challenging and you get to eat as a job!

Who was your mentor?

I’m very lucky to have two. Garry Watson of Gordons Restaurant in Inverkeilor and Paul Whitecross of Trump Aberdeen. They have both been there for me from the start and are still there for any info and guidance, I regard them as very close friends.

Your journey?

My first Commis Chef job was at Circus Wine Bar & Grill in Edinbrugh aged 15.

Then to St. Andrews Seafood Restaurant

Number One at The Balmoral Hotel

Martin Wishart at Cameron House

Angels With Bagpipes in Edinburgh

I opened Castlehill in Dundee where I gained 2 AA Rosettes

Food hero?

Rick Stein I used to watch his TV programs as a young boy before I was a chef. I love his simple approach, he has such love and enthusiasm. He’s also fun to watch!

Food Heaven?

Really good fish and chips. Lashings of home-made tartar sauce and mushy peas. Definitely my last supper! I’m also a big truffle fan!

Food Hell?

Tinned tuna… Yuk!

Favourite Restaurant?

Hard one, as I eat out frequently! I believe it’s part of the job. So… I’ll give my top three. The Kitchin in Edinburgh, Crab Shack in Glasgow, and Jules Verne in Paris

What’s your style?

I like to keep food natural and simple not really interested in crazy food chemicals and adding powders. For me it all focuses round good quality products served with flare but giving the fullest respect to the produce. And No Waste! I hate seeing great food being tossed out due to chefs being careless and uncreative.

Busman’s Holiday?

South of France probably Lyon. Although I’d love to go and work in a really good sushi restaurant in Japan.

Gravestone?

“I’m fine” – No matter how hard things get, I’m always Mr. Positive. Either that or “Put Some Truffle On It” – Love it! Who doesn’t?
