This month we’d like to introduce you to small business producer Razan Alsous, owner and producer of Squeaky Cheese. Razan came over to the UK in 2012 after fleeing war-torn Syria. She has an incredible story to tell and in particular, explains how she overcome many challenges in order to start her own business making Halloumi cheese in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

School’s Out and Summer’s here. It’s a chance to sit back, relax and enjoy time together and what better place to begin than at The Larder. Drinking in those views over the Loch whilst enjoying quality seasonal food and drink produced by our dedicated team of Chefs.

Bare Baxe is a small local business run by two friends Megan and Jan based in Fife. They produce a range of free-from Granola. We recently interviewed them and asked them all about Bare Baxe and how it began, here’s what they had to say.

Kirsty McCloskey (21) is an ex-employee of Loch Leven’s Larder along with her Mum, Gillian. In November 2019 during Kirsty’s final year of a Nursing Degree she became seriously unwell, experiencing excruciating headaches, visual distortion, vomiting, numbness and difficulties balancing. Two months later in February 2020 Kirsty was found to have a satsuma sized tumour on her brain stem, believed to have been present since childhood. Subsequently, Kirsty underwent an emergency 11-hour surgery in order to save her life.

After a long winter there is nothing nicer than fresh local seasonal asparagus. Here to celebrate we have a deliciously easy recipe; Asparagus Tart. Made with some of Scotland’s finest ingredients from small local producers.
