New Angus Larder Showcases the Best of Local Food & Drink

Release date: 24 March 2017

The Third Edition of the popular Angus Larder publication has been published.

This edition, written and published by The List in partnership with Taste of Angus, takes a different approach to the previous two, and focuses on a list of 52 great foods from Angus. Iconic local foods such as Arbroath Smokies, Forfar Bridies and Aberdeen Angus beef are of course included along with newer additions to the area including honeyberries and tea.

There are suggestions from local chefs of dishes which can be prepared using the featured ingredients and listings of where to eat, and where to buy the very best of Angus food and drink. Each item is accompanied by an interesting story so readers really get to know the local producers, and appreciate the work that goes into growing, making, cooking and selling the products.

Donald Reid of The List said, “We have worked with A Taste of Angus over many years and it's great to be publish this new showcase of all the great food from Angus - something for every week of the year. The food producers, growers, chefs, cooks and shopkeepers of Angus have a great pride in their local food and it's a thriving scene with a greater range and diversity of food becoming available. We're proud to be involved with spreading the word to locals, visitors and the wider Scottish food scene."

“We are delighted that our chocolates have been included as one of the 52 great foods from Angus” said Johanna Woodhead of Kirriemuir based chocolatier 88 Degrees. We hand-make all our chocolates, using a local theme in many of our recipes, and are very proud to be based in Angus. This guide is an excellent way to showcase our products, and our café in Kirriemuir.”

John Leatherbarrow of Park Brew commented, “The Angus Larder is an ideal way of spreading the word that Angus is an ideal destination for food and drink lovers. Our brewery in Brechin is going from strength to strength and being included in this guide will help raise awareness of our artisan ales to an even wider audience.”

Copies of the Angus Larder will be available from a wide range of outlets across Angus, Dundee, Aberdeenshire, Perthshire and Fife. It is also available online at
