Visitors to the St Andrews Visitor Information Centre can this week pick up copies of “The Fife Larder – The Guide to Fife’s Food and Drink” and its companion Fife Larder Food Map.

The booklet and map are packed with information for locals and visitors, and are both now in their second editions.

They have matching cover pictures showing a creel-caught crab from stunning St Andrews Bay.

The publications are the result of collaboration between the Fife Food Network’s “Food from Fife” initiative and the List Guides.

With fertile farmland and many miles of coastline providing a natural bounty, Fife is peppered with a wide variety of businesses which use this harvest to the full.

These include several busy farm shops, producers of beef, pork, lamb, and venison, and artisan businesses including bakers, a cheese maker, ice cream makers, and seafood smokehouses.

More and more prime produce is being sourced and used by local chefs in establishments from one end of the Kingdom to the other.

These eateries range through Michelin starred restaurants, five star hotel facilities, B&B’s and guest houses, high quality restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and cafes.

The listings already include over 150 businesses of all types, and you will be able to find their locations, what they offer, and what you might expect to pay when you sit down to eat.

The Fife Larder Food Map and its sister Fife Larder booklet are supported by Fife Council, and the Fife Tourism Partnership.

The visitor centre is in Market Street, and until tomorrow (Thursday) it is running daily free tastings of Fife food between 1pm-3.30pm.
