BUCK and Birch, the team behind Aelder wild elderberry liqueur, has launched a unique communal fine dining experience in Portobello.

Nurture Nature, Eat advocates foraging for the best of Scotland’s natural ingredients.

Spread over a series of events spanning the year, Nurture Nature, Eat is a celebration of Scotland’s natural, wild larder which will take place at Dalriada on Portobello Promenade.

Each multi-course wilderness menu will encapsulate the very best seasonal ingredients, taking diners on a culinary journey along Scotland’s beautiful coastlines and through hedgerows, fields and forests.

Diners can expect game, fish and plenty of wild surprises; to keep everything as fresh and spontaneous as possible, menus - which are typically six courses plus canapes and petit fours - will not be completed until the day of the event.

Innovative menus will be served with wilderness-inspired drinks created by the Buck and Birch team, ranging from wines to spirits and liqueurs, including event sponsor Aelder - a wild elderberry liqueur with a whisky base which was officially launched in November 2016.

Dates of forthcoming Nurture Nature, Eat events are 18 and 19 May, 13 and 14 July, 14 and 15 September and 16 and 17 November.

Tickets are on sale for £54.49 and can be booked online via Eventbrite:
