Meals on Reels: a celluloid celebration of Scottish food and drink

When: 7pm Tuesday 28th February 2012

Where: The Scottish Café, The Mound, Edinburgh

Join Slow Food Scotland for an evening of food, film and conversation to celebrate our great Scottish food traditions.  

In collaboration with Regional Screen Scotland, SFS are hosting the inaugural screening in Edinburgh of Meals on Reels, a series of films and extracts from the collection of Scottish Screen Archive at the National Library of Scotland. It’s a nostalgic look at food and drink products showcasing bygone products, methods of production and advertising before, during and after WW2.  Divided into a ‘menu’ of footage, it features everything from Arbroath Smokies, Dundee Peh and Black Pudding to Dunlop Cheese, Lofty Peak cake and, of course, whisky.

Catherine Brown, Scotland’s most celebrated food writer, will be speaking on the evening, sharing her insights about Scotland’s food traditions.

You will be welcomed with a glass of wine and, before settling down for the screening and discussion, there’ll be a supper featuring products inspired by the film:

  • Crispy Findlay’s of Portobello Haggis and Stornoway Black Pudding balls and Smokehead Whisky Sauce
  • Mug of Creamed Cullen Skink with shards of toasted bread
  • Mini homemade Inverurie steak and Deuchars IPA pies with mashed tatties
  • Vegetarian options will be available on request (please say so when booking)

The cost is £25 per person.
