New guide highlights Dundee's rapidly rising foodie scene

New guide highlights Dundee's rapidly rising foodie scene

Dundee's rapidly growing foodie scene is the subject of a brand new 50-page guide.

As Dundee's regeneration continues, more than 20 new food and drink businesses have opened in the past 18 months - many of them independently run.

Paying tribute to the best of these eateries, and the people behind them, comes a new full-colour guide focusing on the city’s revitalised food scene.

Last year, Castlehill became Dundee's first independent restaurant to win a AA two-rosette award and, more recently, Borgotaro was named Scotland's best Italian restaurant at the Scottish Food Awards, where The D'Arcy Thompson was also unveiled as the country's best gastropub.

Articles in The List's new guide, Dundee Larder, include the history of Dundee Cake by Catherine Brown, and a look at Scotland’s first fresh food vending machine in the Overgate.

Dundee’s impressive reputation as a centre for food research and interviews with chefs and local ‘food heros' on their favourite local food connections also feature.

The guide includes listings of the city’s best cafes, bars and restaurants and features on the people and venues at the heart of the city’s food renaissance.

Jonathan Clark, of Dundee family business Clark’s Bakery, owners of the famous 24hr bakery, features on the cover of the guide. The third-generation bakery has been in business since 1950 and recently opened its 4th shop in Dundee.

"People want local, family-run businesses to do well in Dundee," said Jonathan.

“There is a sense that you’re getting not just experience and familiarity but also really good, locally sourced food. It is about looking at what went before but equally we try hard to always be thinking ahead”

Dundee on the rise

Donald Reid, food and drink editor at The List, said the guide coincided with Dundee's growing relevance on the food scene in Scotland.

He said: “Producing the Dundee Larder, both as a printed guide and as a handy online resource, is a real statement of the rising importance Dundee has in the world of food and drink in Scotland.

"The city's going through a truly exciting phase, with the creative, independent spirit of the city joining forces with a surge of interest in food and drink that's local, of good quality, and surrounded by great stories and inspiring people.

"If you're not checking out what's going on in Dundee you're missing out."

Dundee Larder: The Guide to the Food and Drink of the City is free and available in print and online. It was released to coincide with the start of the Flower and Food Festival, which kicked off this morning.

The guide was co-produced by The List and the Dundee, One City Many Discoveries marketing campaign. It was designed to help visitors and residents discover the people and places that are shaping and defining Dundee’s emergence as a place to enjoy food and drink.
