This month we are welcoming Ben Reade, Co-Owner & Chef, Edinburgh Food Studio and Liam Watson, Co-Founder, Canny
Edinburgh-raised chef and food explorer Ben Reade and partner Sashana Souza Zanella, an anthropologist and chef, have created the Edinburgh Food Studio as the centre of their journeys into cooking, eating, tasting, discovering and researching Scotland's food. Open since October 2015,the studio is open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings for a fixed-menu dinner around communal tables which they hope will evolve into collaborative ventures with guest chefs, artists and musicians. The space is used during the rest of the week for master classes, tastings and mini conferences ranging from fermentation or butchery workshops to sessions focussing on research for their proposed online journal. Reade was previously based in Copenhagen as head of Research & Development at the Nordic Food Lab, and was one half of the pop-up Scratch Series restaurant in Edinburgh in early 2015. Both Reade and Zanella are graduates of the Slow Food inspired University of Gastronomic Sciences in Italy.
Canny believe that great taste comes from great ingredients. Founder Liam, having trained as a herbalist and loving milk, couldn’t believe how shop bought milk drinks lacked taste and personality and most of all didn’t contain real ingredients! By using great ingredients like Belgian chocolate, strawberry puree, vanilla pods and banana puree, adding some Red Tractor certified milk and thickening it with corn flour (just like Mum’s gravy), he found that they could actually taste great. It wasn’t the process, it was the ingredients that you needed to get right.
At Canny, 5% of all profits go to a good cause! The other 95% is used to build a great brand (food to keep the team alive…and the odd beer).
All our their Shakes are 100% natural and a great source of calcium and protein. Make a Canny choice!
