Thanks to our many years of chip frying experience, we quickly found the best temperature and ideal cooking time to fry these chips to perfection. 

Read the article to find out what we said about the new chipping potato variety.

Meet The Team - Vladislava

What is your name and where are you from?

My name is Vladislava Spasova and I am from Svishtov, Bulgaria (born and raised). I am living in Crianlarich, Scotland at the moment.

When did you join the team at The Real Food Café?

I started working for The Real Food Café on 10th of April 2017, then a year later I went home with my boyfriend to get married and have a nice honeymoon. I missed Scotland and The Real Food Café team, so I came back and re-joined in 2019, still super happy to be part of such a great team.

We have launched a litter picking campaign!

As custodians of our local landscape, our Café Manager, Colin McGeoch, was inspired to start a monthly litter picking, the first of which coincided with Zero Waste Scotland’s  Keep Scotland Beautiful Campaign (28th May – 20th June). 
On our first litter pick that took place on 30th May we were blown away by the support from off duty team members, locals, regulars and Flingers from the Highland Fling Race. A bunch of the Tyndrum 24 runners came to our second one and some West Highland Way racers will be joining our July pick. We are very grateful for the support shown from these organisations.
