BLOG#36b – THE STANDING ORDER, EDINBURGH

Regional food – what’s all that about? (Part 2)

Imagine, if you will, one of the coldest days you care to remember – the week before Christmas 2010 – and you booked a day trip to Edinburgh some weeks before when the weather wasn’t so bad.... Maybe not the best idea you had at the time!


Edinburgh has a fine collection of public houses and The Standing Order is perhaps more impressive than its counterpart in Derby.

Cullen skink?

I’d never tried this prior to my trip to Edinburgh last year. But with it being so bloody cold outside, I decided to give it a go in a neighbouring pub (see Blog #2) after spending a pleasant late morning and early-afternoon in TSO...

When in Rome and all that! Cullen skink is a thick soup made of smoked Finnan haddie (smoked haddock), potatoes and onions. Just the job on such a raw, bitterly cold day...
