A NEW Scottish deli start-up has launched in Edinburgh’s Bonnie & Wild Scottish Marketplace.

Soup & Caboodle, described as “epicures of tasty pieces, meats, grazing platters and cheeseboards”, says it is committed to stocking an exclusive range of deli products sourced from small and independent producers from across Scotland.

It is the latest Scottish food business to join the upmarket food hall, based in Edinburgh’s St James Quarter and which already boasts well-known chefs including MasterChef: The Professionals winner Gary Maclean and El Perro Negro, twice winner of UK Burger of the Year Awards.

Soup & Caboodle’s Executive Chef Paul Sciacca comments: “Working on this deli concept has been a fantastic opportunity, despite the very many challenges affecting hospitality right now.

“Scotland’s natural larder is among the best in the world, and all of the team are excited about showcasing many of the wonderful food products from Scotland, complementing what’s already on offer within the rest of the Bonnie & Wild food hall.”

Soup & Caboodle sells a wide range of fresh deli products, including grazing platters, salads, sandwiches, pies, quiches, several platter options, including charcuterie and cheeseboards, and of course soup.

All their items can be packed up for takeaway.

Shoppers can also stock up on deli products including relishes and pickles, jams and jellies, sweets and treats, groceries, and many other types of fresh and artisanal Scottish produce, sourced from the likes of East Coast Cured, Jarvis Pickle, Scotch & Co, IJ Mellis and Galloway Lodge.
