I was thinking about the abundance of fresh local produce we have on our doorstep and it occurred to me how much easier this makes my job at The Stables. We always have daily-changing specials inspired by the wide range of great local ingredients: from fresh langoustines and crabs in the loch to Isle of Skye mussels and Uist scallops, from local resort-shot venison, wild salmon, Highland heather honey to Beauly wild boar. Not to mention all the seasonal goodies we source from our kitchen garden: strawberries, raspberries, black currants, potatoes, beans, peas, gem lettuce, herbs of all shapes and sizes, apples, Jerusalem artichokes- all lovingly grown by our own Les ‘ Green Thumbs ‘ Bates.
It all helps make The Stables a great place for fresh and truly local Highland food. Come and visit. Who knows what will be on our specials board tomorrow?
