The Scottish Crofting Federation put their plans for a range of crofters’ pies before Environment minister Roseanna Cunningham at the Highland show today (Fri). Ms Cunningham tasted an all-butter lamb and marjoram pie, served with pea puree and pea shoots at the SCF stand along with a selection of other gourmet canapés made from Scottish crofting produce.
SCF chief executive Patrick Krause said: “She immediately saw the market potential for a crofter’s pie. We are convinced that our crofters pie, using top quality meat from Highlands and Islands crofts will be the new Scotch pie.”
Ms Cunningham also tasted Shetland beef carpaccio, Sutherland hogget confit, Lewis pork scotch eggs and Lewis strawberry and basil tartlets.
