Angus food and drink is on the move. In recent years this fertile patch of farmland, hill and coastline in northeast Scotland has found its voice in celebrating the produce it can call its own, from recipes and production methods handed down through generations to exciting new innovations and dynamic food enterprises.

Just as importantly, the Angus Larder helps you to find these riches, with practical listings both in print and online to the shops, markets, festivals, cafés, stalls and restaurants where food and drink from Angus is being served.
