LOCI Food Lab: Scotland Research

November 18, 2014

The Center is collaborating with chefs Ben Reade and Dave Crabtree-Logan (co-founders of The Scratch Series) for the next iteration of LOCI Food Lab in Edinburgh on November 25th. 

Ben recently arrived back in Scotland after a stint at Nordic Food Lab while Dave recently returned from working in the US. 

Ben and Dave spent last Saturday refamiliarizing themselves with some of the regions producers and exploring the market for the relevant local food items that will form the ingredients of our next LOCI menu. Here’s a few images from their research:

The LOCI Food Lab: Edinburgh project was one outcome of the Nil By Mouth talent development program, which invited four artists to explore food, farming, science and sustainability through a series of collaborative residencies and workshops. The project is set in the context of the Scottish Government’s Strategic Research Program (SRP) and was designed and managed through a partnership between the Crichton Carbon Centre, Creative Scotland and Wide Open.
