Our September issue is a celebration of some of the best hospitality these islands have to offer. Featuring a visit to The String, a colourful account of Pigstock (Burra’s new festival), tour stories from The Revellers and much more.
Pull up a chair, make yourself at home and enjoy!
Local chef Akshay Borges (@shetlandchef) uses the best quality, freshest Shetland produce and he puts it all together to make something to savour.
It’s a bit like what we do with our magazine.
Thanks to Stephen Mercer productions for another beautiful film.
After last month’s hugely successful Taste of Shetland event, we have not one but two mouth-wateringly good food articles written by local chefs.
Akshay Borges writes about the motivation behind his pop-up seafood venture. He also shares a recipe for fresh plaice with cabbage slaw (pictured).
In another article, last year’s Shetland Food Festival winner Christopher Percival reports back on his prize: a fine dining experience at https://restaurantmartinwishart.co.uk/ Leith restaurant.
This month, Shetland Life celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit which is so apparent in Shetland.
However, if business isn’t your bag, then there’s plenty of other stuff specially selected to tickle your fancy. If this never-ending winter has sapped your joie de vivre, then take a tip from Pete Richardson and follow his directions for an uplifting walk around the Ness (while warming your lugs with the Fair-Isle headband which is this month’s Speedcrafting creation). Then, you can return home and follow Akshay Borges’ recipe for a deliciously spicy monkfish and salmon dish (take it from me, it’s amazing).
While you wait for the fish to marinate, you can read Vivian Ross-Smith’s article about the inspiration behind her current Bonhoga exhibition, Liam Anderson’s gardening tips and much more.
