For the first time ever, one of Scotland’s finest ingredients will be on the menu at two popular Edinburgh bagel shops next week (17-23 August) as part of a nationwide campaign to support Scottish farmers and the wider supply chain.
Bross Bagels in Edinburgh has partnered with Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) to create a limited-edition bagel featuring Scotch Lamb PGI, which will be tempting taste buds in their Bruntsfield and Leith stores as part of a wider Make It Scotch Lamb campaign.
The ‘LAMBO’ bagel – which will be filled with smoked slow cooked Scotch Lamb shoulder, house made herboe crisps, watercress, crispy onions and minty mayo – will be the first time the business has featured lamb on their menus.
Scotch Lamb PGI is a high-quality, delicious meat that is sourced from selected Scottish farms which adhere to stringent quality assurance and animal welfare standards and Saundersons Butchers in Bruntsfield, a member of QMS’ Scotch Butchers Club, is providing the Scotch Lamb that will be delighting bagel lovers throughout the capital city.
Lesley Cameron, Director of Marketing and Communications at Quality Meat Scotland, the organisation which promotes Scotch Lamb, said: “Scottish butchers and food service operators up and down the supply chain have been working harder than ever in recent months to provide people with world-class Scotch Beef PGI, Scotch Lamb PGI and Specially Selected Pork, so we are delighted to be partnering with Bross Bagels to give people the chance to try Scotch Lamb in a new and exciting way.
“Lamb can sometimes be overlooked in favour of other meats but we hope that getting to enjoy it with the delicious filling on offer from the bagel experts at Bross will help people see how tasty and versatile it is.”
Larah Bross, owner of Bross Bagels, said: “At Bross Bagels we are passionate about offering our customers a wide range of flavours and combinations as part of our menu and we have loved working with a nearby Scotch butcher.
“Much like lamb, my hometown of Montreal often gets overlooked as the bagel capital of the world in favour of New York, but we are confident that our first ever Scotch Lamb offering will have people shouting about the bagels Edinburgh has to offer.”
