Taste of Shetland

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.

February Issue Out Now!

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.
