One of Scotland’s finest ingredients is taking centre stage in an ‘at home’ small plates menu launched today (21 July) through a partnership with a popular Glasgow restaurant and a Scottish deals site.
Eusebi Deli in Glasgow has partnered with the itison at Home dining service to create a small plates menu featuring Scotch Lamb PGI, which customers can enjoy from the comfort of their own homes while directly supporting Scottish farmers and the wider supply chain.
The dish – a Scotch Lamb Cannelloni with Porcini Mushroom Ragu – can be viewed from today on the itison website and will be available to purchase as part of the Eusebi at home menu between 23 and 26 July and 31 July and 2 August.
Scotch Lamb PGI is a high-quality, delicious meat that is sourced from selected Scottish farms which adhere to stringent quality assurance and animal welfare standards.
Campbell Brothers is providing the Scotch Lamb that will be delighting diners throughout the city and Greater Glasgow area.
Lesley Cameron, Director of Marketing and Communications at Quality Meat Scotland, the organisation which promotes Scotch Lamb, said: “Scottish butchers and food service operators have been working harder than ever in recent months to provide people with world-renowned Scotch Beef PGI, Scotch Lamb PGI and Specially Selected Pork at home, so we are delighted to be partnering with Eusebi Deli and itison as part of the at home dining service to offer a Scotch Lamb dish in an authentic Italian way.
“Lamb can sometimes be overlooked in favour of other meats but we hope that getting to enjoy it with the Eusebi at home menu will encourage people to reconsider making it a natural choice for a homecooked meal.”
Giovanna Eusebi, owner of Eusebi Deli, said: “At Eusebi we are passionate about using the best local produce and support numerous small suppliers so engaging with a Scotch supplier as part of our at-home menu with itison was an easy decision for us.
“Our brand was born in Italy but created in Scotland and this partnership was an opportunity to do what we do best – create delicious, seasonal food with an Italian twist. We cannot wait for the people of Glasgow to give this one a try.”
Yvonne Brennan, Director of Operations at itison, said: “itison at Home was launched to support Glasgow’s hospitality sector after it was drastically impacted by lockdown, so working with two businesses like Eusebi Deli and Quality Meat Scotland who, like us, strongly believe in supporting Scottish produce and suppliers was a no-brainer.
“The service has been a huge success so far which just goes to show how proud Glasgow is to support Scottish fare.”
