The first Bross Bagels collaboration starts on Sunday 18 October and sees Roberta Hall-McCarron from The Little Chartroom take over the kitchen for the day.

Bross Bagels and Little Chartroom fans looking to try Roberta’s specially designed bagel will need to be quick, as it is available for one day only.

Roberta’s bagel, priced at £7, will feature braised beef cheek, beef sauce, caramalised onion mayo, cornichons, kohlrabi and sweetheart cabbage slaw, crispy onion rings and cheddar cheese, served on a sesame seed Bross Bagel.

The team at Bross are looking to support other local chefs, by offering pop up slots at their bagel shops throughout Edinburgh.

Their bagel shops can stay open at this time as they don’t serve alcohol – therefore they are permitted to open 6am-6pm.

Posting on their Instagram, the team announced their collaboration with Roberta, before adding: “Then we suddenly thought: maybe there are other local chefs that we can support by having them pop up in our bagel shops during these dark times.

“If lunch is the new dinner then let’s get some experts in and make our holes all fancy while we can.

“So we’re doing a call out to Edinburgh restaurants in lockdown with some time on their hands. If you’re a local chef up for doing a colab in bagel land GET IN TOUCH!

“We want to pair up like it’s the last days of Tinder. We’re open to all ideas from Bagel Bolognese to Toad in the Hole.”
