Visitors arriving in Dundee can expect to find a thriving, contemporary food and drink scene from cultured cafes to fine dining and pop-up street food markets. A short drive or train ride will transport visitors from the city to nearby Angus, home to some of the best produce in Scotland.

Petr and Katja begin their food adventure in Dundee city-centre, a short 3 mile drive from Dundee Airport and experience a local favourite, a ‘Dundee Peh on a roll’ at third-generation butchers Scotts. The pair go on to taste-test Dundee Cake, the world-famous fruitcake made to a recipe that originates from the 19th century at family owned Clark’s Bakery.

A trip to Arbroath in nearby Angus sees Petr try an Arbroath Smokie in for the first time, describing the local speciality as ‘a winner’ and ‘the most freshly prepared smoked fish ever tasted’.

The Scottish food adventure also includes a trip to Mackays, the last remaining producers of Dundee Orange Marmalade, fine dining at Gordon’s Restaurant in Inverkeillor close to the beautiful Lunan Bay beach and a traditional Scottish dessert made with locally grown raspberries, oats, cream and whisky known as Cranachan.

“Now we have to go home and say Scottish food is amazing!” says Katja.

The next video will focus on a cultural weekend break in Dundee to be released in March.
