However, today I have chosen to create a very classic Scottish dish using tasty home-grown potatoes stovies
This week we have been enjoying lots of baked potatoes with stovies
and frugal potato dishes in our future meal plans.
And my B'n'B host made stovies
for me in Inverness - it's mashed potato mixed with mince and veg.
Music groups Capercaillie and Skerryvore are headlining the festival and the event also features all the best of the area's produce from fresh Loch Fyne oysters, Mull cheese and Colonsay honey to Real Mackay stovies
and Arran Auchentoshan whisky.

WITH FRIED EGGS

The latest addition to the range, the first product created by Strathmore Foods under the McIntosh label, is Steak Pie & Tattles (310g) and further expands the traditional fayre on offer, which also includes: Macaroni Cheese (400g), Macaroni Cheese Pot (250g), Mince & Tatties (340g) and Scottish Stovies
It's heaving with locals and guests stomping to live folk music and feasting on stovies

Traditionally this was cheese, pork pies, stovies
Loch Fyne Oyster, Winston Churchill Venison, Real Mackay Stovies
, Inverawe Smokehouse, Bumble Puddings, Visit Arran, Home Ground Coffee, JR Fine Foods and Fyne Ales will provide topnotch food and drink alongside local crafts and performers like Skippinish, The Peatbog Faeries and Skerryvore.
I cannot sign off, however, without a word to the injured Ant who hit the Dec proving that Britain's NOT Got Talent when it comes to cooking: you'd have been better off sticking to stovies
instead of making a hash of your posh potatoes dauphinoise.
