Celebrating the Finest Scottish Produce

Last summer, Assembly’s George Square Gardens played host to the inaugural Edinburgh Food Festival, as a part of The Year of Food and Drink, Scotland 2015.

Visit Scotland, Event Scotland and Scotland Food and Drink teamed up with this initiative to spotlight, celebrate and promote Scotland’s natural larder of quality produce to both locals and visitors.

Embracing the celebrations, the Assembly George Square Gardens were bustling with gourmet Street Food, local food producers, tantalising talks and delicious debates in the splendid Spiegeltent across five days of the festival season. 

“The inaugural Edinburgh Food Festival has been a huge success, offering a programme of engaging talks and the opportunity for all ages and interests to discover a wide variety of excellent Scottish producers. Delighted to have been involved in the first event of many and the strong start can be developed yet further for 2016”
