Cranachan and Crowdie

Bringing some welcome authenticity to the Royal Mile – albeit with a generous selection of shortbread for visitors – is, ironically, American Beth Edberg. Her deli's smart pine shelves show off the knowledge of the food scene she's picked up over 13 years of Scottish living. She and Fiona McEwan are working to stock the best of edible Scotland, from smoked salmon to craft beer, not forgetting Puffin Poo (chocolate, marshmallow and crisped rice, rolled in coconut, from the Shetland Fudge Company – another one for the tourists). They're working hard to find the line between a heart-of-tartan location and their genuine desire to stock good, artisan food not easily found in Edinburgh.
