Focus on...Wild Fig Food...

Established in 2011 the creative skills of Justin and Nicola Maule came together, founding a business that’s aim was to deliver a high quality catering service that was personal, that used the very best in locally sourced ingredients as much as possible, with no compromise on flavour.

While still continuing to cater for all manner of events, Wild Fig has expanded, moving into new markets with their growing range of produce. They now bring the same high quality multi award winning product to the kitchen and dining tables of homes around the world.  

Wild Fig Food have 4 products on offer, each product expertly produced in small batches and contains only simple, natural ingredients and the finest Scottish spirits. From the wonderfully unique Glengoyne cask strength whisky, produced in a distillery that coaxes spirit through the slowest whisky stills in Scotland to Dark Matter Rum, the first and only Rum distillery in the country – to the time and experience that they invest in every jar.  

The luxurious range of artisanal preserves and condiments are:
Dark and Stormy Marmalade with Rum and Ginger
Seville Orange and Malt Whisky Marmalade
Tomato Chutney with Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Salt Caramel Sauce

Thought these delicious products could only be used on your morning toast or on ice cream? Here are a few of our favourite ways to eat Wild Fig products:
1. Stir Seville Orange marmalade through vegetables for a citrus tang 
2. Banana and Salt Caramel milkshake using 1 Banana, 450ml Milk, 100g Vanilla Ice-Cream and 3 tsp Wild Fig’s Salt Caramel Sauce.
3. Whisky Marmalade cocktail with bourbon, lemon juice, sugar syrup, orange marmalade, orange bitters and of course ice. Delish!
4. Use the Rum and Ginger Marmalade as a ham glaze
5. Add Salt Caramel sauce to baked apples or apple crumble
6. Add the Tomato Chutney to your cheeseboard...the perfect accompaniment
7. Whisky marmalade bread and butter pudding - like normal bread and butter pudding but with whisky marmalade.
8. Top a home made burger with Whisky Tomato Chutney for an extra kick

Whichever way you choose to use Wild Fig products, indulge and enjoy...

Well Hello There February !
Well Hello There February !

February 01, 2020

And this month we will celebrate the day of love on St Valentine’s day and I will be celebrating something else.  My birthday! We have some lovely bespoke Valentine’s gift boxes with red shred to mark the occasion created especially for your love.

I’m super excited to tell you about our new products that will be coming soon. I had attended the Specialty food show in Glasgow last month and was blown away with the high-quality products. I ate my body weight in tasters and came home with a sack filled with samples that Santa would be jealous of! Thank you  to all who gave me samples X 

I absolutely loved chatting to the amazing producers and hearing all their inspiring stories.  It was also great to meet some of our own producers and catch up with others. Call me old fashioned, but I so prefer meeting face to face than talking on a phone or in an email. Although I do talk a wee bit too much and felt I didn’t get to every stand!

I would love to mention all the amazing products that I found, but that would be an essay, and this is a blog!  I’m already struggling with the word count here!

Coming soon ….

I was hoping to find some healthier option snacks and found Growers Garden and their broccoli crisps. (based in Fife) They are made from the wonky broccoli supermarkets don’t want, 100 % natural, taste amazing and are gluten free. What’s not to love here!  They sent me a huge box of samples and I’m just awaiting on other products to add into the box I’m hoping to offer. I must admit I have eaten quite a few bags … they are that good!

I have a sweet tooth and was so impressed with the amount of high-quality chocolate producers at the show. It’s so difficult to pick, when you are spoilt with such choice !

Have you ever heard of Ruby chocolate?

Here's to 2020 : let it be great ...
Here's to 2020 : let it be great ...

And so it’s now 2020 ! Wow ...a few years back that seemed so very very far away ...

and now it's here so Happy new year to you all x

Seems like yesterday it was my school holidays and they seemed to last forever . Now a year passes quicker than a lightening bolt ! I remember my Granny used to say the older you get , the quicker the years pass. How true is this now ?! 

Well the year 2019 could only be described as a challenging one .

I Lost my Dad in April 2019 , which was one of the hardest things i've ever had to deal with . Then it was the decision to give up my other business, The Wee Kitchen Company. Karen also left Clan Artisan and I wasn't quite sure whether to continue alone.

Emotionally draining ...all of it . 

But ...

Aren't all these curve balls we get thrown just life in general .. We all keep waiting on life getting easier ..or better.. but the challenges just keep coming , every single day . Some challenges are life changing and so difficult to deal with , and we need time to recover. Some are just a nuisance .

But some of these challenges really have to happen in order to clear the path for new beginnings . We just can't see that at the time .
