Delicious seafood and beautiful art! These really are the perfect ingredients for a happy visit to Pittenweem and the East Neuk...
....as seen on international cook show series, The Spice Traveller!
A few weeks back, Indian celebrity chef Saransh Goila visited Pittenweem for his popular youtube series. He was here to meet with Jim Knox from The Fisherman's Larder and to discover more about delicious, just-caught, local seafood - as seen in Episode 16!
Before leaving Pittenweem, he visited Funky Scottish and bought a memento of his visit - one of our hand-painted tiles, created by our own resident artist/owner, Karen Edward!
In Episode 17, the talented Chef prepared a mouth-watering canape - Crab Kasoori Methi. Ingredients include dressed crab sourced from The Fisherman's Larder, freshly picked vegetables from Kellie Castle & Garden and of course...spices!
AND...we were delighted to discover, it's all beautifully presented on our decorative tile! We absolutely love this original idea for our tiles - steal it for your Christmas parties!
Meanwhile, you can see both episodes below....

When your children leave their cookies for Santa (and perhaps a few carrots for Rudolf), add a little extra magic by serving the goodies on Santa's very own crockery!

On Christmas morning, watch your child's face light up in wonder when they discover an empty glass and just a few crumbs on the plate....
If you'd like to request a hand-painted, bespoke plate for Santa's Supper please get in touch with Karen Edward @ Funky Scottish.
Living by the sea, Karen Edward @ Funky Scottish is naturally drawn to coastal themes and has developing her own unmistakable flair for showcasing the unique character of the East Neuk.
