PRESS RELEASE 

Ed Food Fest Brings A Whole Lot Mhor This Year

Award winning chef Tom Lewis and the Monachyle Mhor team are set to headline at the Edinburgh Food Festival this summer.

Now in its third year, the Assembly-run festival celebrates the Scotland’s finest food and drink. Free to enter, the festival takes place in George Square Gardens with foodie talks, debates and demos supported by artisan producers and stallholders.

Monachyle Mhor’s chef proprietor, Tom Lewis is bringing the Mhor charm – from food to style – to Scotland’s capital, for two nights only with Eat Mhor at Edinburgh Food Fest.

Offering a 6-course tasting menu wrapped up in the glamour of the famous Speigeltent du Variete, guests will be given a unique dining experience.

A limited number of seats will be available, with table sittings offered between 7pm and 9pm on both 28th and 29th July. Tickets will go on sale on Friday 26th May, and can be purchased from the website.

Hailed as the ‘daddy cool of the Trossachs’ by Conde Nast Traveller, Monachyle Mhor is famed for serving excellence in Scottish produce; farmed, foraged and produced on the Monachyle farm and surrounding countryside.

Sharon Burgess, Managing Director of Assembly Festival and Edinburgh Food Festival, said:

“The food and drink offering here in Scotland is world-class, so when the masses descend upon Edinburgh ahead of the Fringe Festival, we ensure a taste of Scotland all in one place.

“The effortless style and unbeatable quality of what Chef Tom Lewis and family produce is the perfect pairing for Edinburgh Food Festival, so we are thrilled to bring them to the Capital for the hottest ticket this side of the festival!”

Edinburgh Food Festival has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2014, hosting top industry figures such as Shirley Spear, Guy Grieve and Neil Forbes and welcoming over 25,000 visitors last year.

With quality Scottish food at the heart of it, the festival is a fantastic introduction for visitors to see just a soupçon of what Scotland’s larder has to offer. For more information on the festival and to book tickets visit http://www.edfoodfest.com
