A Flavourful Day at Leith Market

Leith Market in Edinburgh recently played host to a culinary extravaganza that left taste buds tingling and hearts full of warmth. Our presence at the market was nothing short of spectacular, and we had the privilege of introducing our signature gnocchi with three exceptional sauces to a vibrant and enthusiastic crowd. Let's take you on a journey through this unforgettable day filled with good food, sunshine, and a touch of Scottish weather.

The Gnocchi: A Taste of Italy in Scotland

Our star of the day was our delicious gnocchi. These little pillows of perfection are crafted with love and care, ensuring a texture that's soft and simply irresistible. We brought a slice of Italy to the heart of Scotland, and the response was overwhelming.

The Special Sauces: A Symphony of Flavors

Accompanying our exquisite gnocchi were three exceptional sauces, each crafted to perfection:

  1. Cream and Bacon with Smoky Pancetta Style Cubes: Creamy, smoky, and rich, this sauce was a symphony of flavors. The addition of our Smoky Pancetta Style Cubes elevated this dish to a whole new level, creating a sensation that delighted taste buds with every bite.

  2. Ragù with Original Steak and Tomato Pasta: Our minced Original Steak blended seamlessly with tomato pasta and rosemary, creating a hearty, savory sauce that paid homage to traditional Italian flavors. It was a comforting option for those seeking a taste of nostalgia.

  3. 'Nduja with Starchy Water: For those who craved a bit of spice and boldness, our 'Nduja-style spread mixed with starchy water delivered an explosion of flavors that awakened the palate. It was a daring choice that left customers craving for more.

The Day's Weather: Sunshine with a Dash of Rain

As if the culinary delights weren't enough, Mother Nature decided to add her touch to the day. The sun graced us with its presence, casting a warm glow over the market. The atmosphere was lively, and spirits were high. However, just as unpredictably as Scotland's weather can be, a quick shower made a surprise appearance. But this didn't dampen anyone's spirits; in fact, it added to the adventure and brought people together as they sought shelter while savoring their gnocchi.

The Sell-Out Sensation

The response from the crowd was nothing short of phenomenal. The queues at our stall grew longer, and the aroma of our gnocchi and sauces wafted through the market, drawing in food lovers from all corners. By around 14:00, we were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves sold out, leaving many satisfied customers and a deep sense of accomplishment.
