Ardross Farm Shop’s flower courgettes best kept secret

Ardross Farm Shop is back in the sportlight after news broadcaster Viv Lumsden reached the finals of the Eat Drink Discover Scotland ‘Secret Ingredient’ search with her recipes using their flower courgettes.

Celebrity chef Mark Greenway teamed up with the event in search of Scotland’s best secret ingredients, and people were encouraged to submit their own to be in with a chance of cooking with him at the event in September.

Viv said: “I live in Glasgow and travel to Ardross Farm Shop in Fife to buy my courgette flowers - they can be filled with any flavoursome, gooey ingredients but a favourite is with ricotta, garlic, basil, parmesan and a spoonful of grated ciabatta.”

Nikki Storrar, manager, said: “We were over the moon when the Eat Drink Discover Scotland team phoned to say that Viv had recommended a product she buys from us as her secret ingredient. We will be at the event cheering Viv on in the final – and we wish her the best of luck in the cook off with Mark Greenaway.”
