The Larder

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.

Ice cream days: growing up in an old school ice cream parlour

1 May 2009

Mary Contini of Valvonna & Crolla describes her enviable upbringing
