A CAFE in Skye has teamed up with a restaurant in Edinburgh to create a “fine-dining supper club” experience for one-night only.

The owner of Café Cùil in Skye Clare Coghill (below) and the owner of Edinburgh’s Fhior restaurant will collaborate on a six-course menu.

The National:

It will infuse the former’s island produce-inspired dishes with fine dining restaurant Fhior’s clean, precise and seasonal cooking to bring something new to the island.

Fhior first opened in 2018 and is situated on Broughton Street in the capital. Since opening, it has been listed in the Good Food and Michelin guides and has won a number of awards.

Café Cùil meanwhile curates local and Scottish artisan makers of a range of products including food and drink as well as books, skincare and ceramics. 

The chefs will alternate courses, using local Skye produce and ingredients foraged by the chefs themselves to create a unique menu.
