The Pantry farm shop and kitchen is opening its doors in Stockbridge this week, bringing the finest Scottish produce to the city just in time for Christmas. Combining carefully sourced ingredients with influences from around the world The Pantry will showcase Scotland's cuisine at its best, with a relaxed and informal dining experience.


From free-range pork from Liddesdale and hearty vegetables from the likes of East Coast Organics to specially created apple and seabuckthorn presse from Cuddybridge,each dish on the menu features a star ingredient that can be traced back to a local Scottish producer. The menus will vary every week, reflecting seasonal change and availability. In the opening week, visitors will be able to enjoy the likes of Arbroath smokie kedgeree with soft quail's egg and Pulled pork cheek, grain mustard, apple sauce and shredded celeriac.


Every star ingredient served in the kitchen will be available in The Pantry's well stocked shop. The 'urban farm-shop' will offer a variety of Scottish meats, cheese and fish, local fruit and vegetables, along with a range of meals to cook at home all prepared in The Pantry's kitchen. Cakes, coffees, light bites, salads and sandwiches will also be available to takeaway throughout the day.


Owners Chris and Charlotte Thompson have a long running passion for food and will be bringing this enthusiasm to The Pantry: “We're passionate about the best seasonal and local food, and whether enjoying the beautiful dishes lovingly prepared in our kitchen, or selecting from the great range of produce from our farm shop, we wanted to provide the people of Edinburgh with a perfect one-stop-shop from which to enjoy the great Scottish produce right here on our doorstep. “The best social occasions combine good food with good company - it's that ethos that lies at the heart of The Pantry."


Head chef Ian Henderson has a wealth of experience with over 15 years spent working in restaurants across Europe including a year spent in Spain working at some of the top Michelin starred restaurants including ABaC in Barcelona.


The Pantry, based at 1-2 North West Circus Place, will be opening on Friday 7th December from 12pm and there will be an opportunity to sample some of the dishes on the new menu throughout the day.


On-going, the kitchen will be open from 8.30 serving breakfasts, lunch, cakes and coffees, with light bites and 'one-pot-wonders' available in the evening till 9pm. The shop will also be open from 8.30 till 9pm too, offering diners the opportunity to purchase ingredients they have enjoyed in the kitchen.
