Truly Scrumptious

My dear glamorous friend Annie who live in rural Sweden, but hails originally from Scotland has recently launched a website promoting her delicious, indeed scrumptious Scottish Tablet, which is like fudge, a sugary melt in the mouth confection.

Annie makes all her tablet by hand and uses a variety of Scottish Malt Whiskies to give each individual bag a distinctive flavour

Check out her website, from which you will soon be able to order online click on the link, it is  a beautiful site: Annie D\’s Scottish Whisky Tablet Website

Oh and btw Annie’s Tablet was served at this year’s Nobel Nightcap in Stockholm, brava Annie!!

The Galloway hills seen from Innerwell Bay a site of many a childhood family picnic and swim and former salmon stake nets. Just above the shoreline the most delightful house.  At the time of my youth Walter King-Webster the proprietor used to hang a sign at the road end “Salmon – Cheaper than Mince” mince being ground beef, salmon being wild, (of course) he packed fish in ice and sent them by train from the local station to the finest restaurants in London. changed days eh!
