The Fife Larder & Fife Larder Food Map

Fife Larder & Food Map

Described by James VI as ‘a beggar’s mantle fringed with gold’, Fife has always been a place of hidden treasures. Rich in entrepreneurial spirit, Fife has start-up breweries and families who have been hand-making ice cream for generations; Scotland’s oldest deer farm and its first chilli grower. This is a guide to the edible gold of Fife’s larder. It tells you about the food being grown, made, landed and created in the region, and just as importantly where to find it, from farm shops and markets to cafés and restaurants.

The second edition of The Fife Larder was published in April 2012 and the third edition of the Fife Larder Food Map, pin-pointing 125 good food spots across the region, in July 2015. Independently compiled to reflect the best of Fife’s contemporary food scene, these publications are designed to help you find, appreciate and enjoy great local food.
