A number of local B&B and guesthouse owners have just taken part in the latest “Fife Breakfast” workshop run by the Fife Food Network in conjunction with the SRUC Elmwood Campus.

Chef lecturers Wullie Balfour, Martin Luti and Vicki Munro were joined by Viv Collie, from the network’s “Food from Fife” team, as a number of extra hints, tips and skills and trade secrets were passed on to participants.

The session, aimed at helping to create a special breakfast brand in for the sector, was held in Elmwood’s fully equipped training kitchen and restaurant.

Viv said that a hands-on cooking session helped  participants improve their skills in making and presenting some classic breakfast dishes.

The workshop, she said, also featured improving knife skills, table settings, preserve making, and a wide ranging Q&A session.

Information was also provided about local producers featured in the Fife Larder and its companion Fife Larder Food Map, which have been produced thanks to collaboration between Food from Fife and the List Guides.

During the sessions local produce highlighted included bacon from Puddledub, strawberries from Cairnie Fruit Farm, and asparagus from Muddy Boots.
