The Larder

Listed in The Larder – in the shops now or buy online.

This award-winning specialist Italian grocer, wine merchant and café bar has legendary status in the capital, if not the country as a whole. 2008 marked a major development for Valvona & Crolla when a tie-up with House of Fraser saw them take over the foodhall not just in Princes Street's most famous shop, Jenners, but also in Jenners' outpost at Loch Lomond. The foodhall at Jenners has a stronger emphasis on Scottish products than the Italian-dominated Elm Row store, and while the shortbread is a strong seller, there's also smoked fish, cheese, preserves, chocolates and V&C's ever-solid range of wines and spirits. A caffè offers hot drinks and snacks, as well as perches beside a long window overlooking the Scott Monument and Princes Street Gardens.

Mary Contini of Valvonna & Crolla describes her enviable upbringing

It took two men, my father and Tommy Dougal, to lift up each milk churn and tip it into the stainless-steel vat. It could be four or five churns at a time – even more in July and August when the factory was working at full capacity. Once the 20-gallon…
