Cakes and tarts are the main event at this naught-but-nice family run cafe chain. It all started in the original Leith bakery, with its views in to the kitchen where you can watch a team of bakers whipping up platefuls of sugary creamy creations. Mimi’s is a product of family history and it is this that gives them the knowledge to innovate and create. Everything is made in-house from fresh, locally sourced ingredients including sausages, fruit and veg and cheese from Edinburgh.
Summer Harvest Oils was founded by Mark Bush in 2008. While working as an IT consultant on the trading floor of a London Investment bank, Mark developed a love for food and a passion for local, seasonal produce. He left his high flying city job (swapping his leather brogues for wellie boots) to pursue his passion and moved to Scotland to start working on his father-in-laws farm in rural Perthshire. After a season of growing vegetables and selling potatoes at his local farmers market, Mark looked in to other produce.
Marks father in law was one of the first farmers in the area to grow oilseed rape (25 years previously). As no-one solely based in Scotland was producing ‘Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil’, Mark decided to explore this market. Mark now grows, presses, triple filters and bottles his premium oil on the farm and sells to the likes of Andrew Fairlies at Gleneagles, Tom Kitchin, Mark Greenaway, Neil Forbes and many more.
