Kenny Anderson, AKA King Creosote will be singing for your supper

So, Monday morning. Feeling fine? No?

Need a little something to get you through to lunch? How about news of a food festival which is taking place this weekend in the pretty, little Fife harbour town of Crail?

Fife’s larder

Now in its third year, Crail Food Festival is a two day event dedicated to Fife’s natural larder. On Saturday, the fun will revolve around an indoor market in the Community Hall.

Around 30 local food businesses will be displaying their wares from smoked meats and local cheeses to cold cuts and chutneys. There will also be a Cookery and Tasting Theatre which will host a programme of cookery demos throughout the day.

Edinburgh Gin

Included in the afternoon part of the schedule is a tasting from the Spencerfield Spirits company who make the delicious Edinburgh Gin. Entry to the hall is £2.

In the evening, there is a three course dinner gig with the mighty King Creosote. Tickets or returns might still be available on 01333 450 935.

At last year’s festival, Kenny Anderson, AKA King Creosote, was commissioned to sing until the sun shone. Miraculously, given last summer, he pulled it off.

Hopefully, no such voodoo will be required this weekend.

On Sunday 16th of June, the action moves to the harbour and an open air market. As well as cookery demonstrations, visitors can sign up for foraging walks organised by The Fife Diet and Paul Wedgwood, chef patron at Wedgwood The Restaurant in Edinburgh.

Locally landed crab

Visitors will be able to browse the market stalls and tuck into street food ranging from locally caught crab and lobster to handmade pizza. Children’s games will be running all day including a treasure trail, scavenger hunt and face painting.

If nibbling on Fife’s finest food sharpens your appetite for something more substantial then you can check out 5pm’s member restaurants in the Kingdom of Fife by clicking here.

Esperante at The Fairmont Hotel and Sands Grill at The Old Course Hotel both feature much lauded kitchens.
