Eight Must Try Local Foods When Visiting Dundee and Angus

Dundee Airport is set to release a series of online travel videos to showcase the East Coast of Scotland and convenience of travelling to Dundee from London Stansted in response to Dundee being named one of the top places to visit in 2018 by Wall Street Journal, CNN and Conde Nast Traveller.

The first of four videos released earlier this week follows Petr and Katja from the Czech Republic as they fly into Dundee Airport for a self-guided food adventure around Dundee and Angus.

Visitors arriving in Dundee can expect to find a thriving, contemporary food and drink scene from cultured cafes to fine dining and pop-up street food markets. A short drive or train ride will transport visitors from the city to nearby Angus, home to some of the best produce in Scotland.

Petr and Katja begin their food adventure in Dundee city-centre, a short 3 mile drive from Dundee Airport and experience a local favourite, a ‘Dundee Peh on a roll’ at third-generation butchers Scotts. The pair go on to taste-test Dundee Cake, the world-famous fruitcake made to a recipe that originates from the 19th century at family owned Clark’s Bakery.

A trip to Arbroath in nearby Angus sees Petr try an Arbroath Smokie for the first time, describing the local speciality as ‘a winner’ and ‘the most freshly prepared smoked fish ever tasted’.

The Scottish food adventure also includes a trip to Mackays, the last remaining producers of Dundee Orange Marmalade, fine dining at Gordon’s Restaurant in Inverkeilor close to the beautiful Lunan Bay beach and a traditional Scottish dessert made with locally grown raspberries, oats, cream and whisky known as Cranachan.

“Now we have to go home and say Scottish food is amazing!” says Katja.

The next video will focus on a cultural weekend break in Dundee to be released in March.
