The category recognises businesses which best demonstrate authenticity, quality, use and promotion of Scottish produce, and a passion for the product.

Carole, who set the business up three and a half years ago, said she was delighted to have been nominated.

“We believe catering for weddings and events – where guests from all corners of the globe feast together in large numbers – is the perfect opportunity to memorably showcase Scotland’s larder.

“Our sharing platters, for instance, are Italian-inspired, but guests are often surprised and delighted to learn the pheasant salami is made just outside Colessie, or that the smoked venison is from The Highlands.

We like to spice our menu with an element of surprise that comes from realising th there is some really exciting produce right here on our Scottish doorstep.”
