About Ballintaggart Farm

Chris and Rachel established and ran Charlie and Evelyn's Table, Edinburgh's first supper club. Having enjoyed rave reviews, sell out success and welcomed well over 500 guests to their table (once belonging to Chris's grandparents, the real Charlie and Evelyn) change was on the horizon and they were ready to shape a new dream.

In 2014, after years of talking about how they could change their lifestyles and work together, they headed to London where Chris completed the full Diploma in Food and Wine at Leiths School of Food and Wine. In 2015, they saw and fell completely in love with Ballintaggart Farm and in 2016, they moved here with their three children to build a dream inspired by natural beauty, genuine hospitality and sharing simple pleasures with others.

The steading at Ballintaggart has been lovingly converted into the perfect destination to stay, eat, cook and celebrate.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is at the heart of Ballintaggart.

Good food is prepared with classical skill and thought, championing local, artisan producers and Scottish flavours. Where possible, ingredients are sourced from the kitchen garden and foraged from surrounding hedgerows, fields and woodlands.

Dishes and menus reflect the seasons and showcase natural, simple ingredients at their finest. As a Sandgrouse Travel & Expeditions guest, you are invited to join your hosts for breakfast and delicious home baking each afternoon, and they can also provide packed lunches and supper at the Farm if requested in advance. 

 

Cookery Workshops

Everything you need for the day will be provided – aprons, equipment, recipes and ingredients. You’ll leave with new skills, confidence, top tips and inspiration. The Ballintaggart kitchen hosts talks, garden tours, foraging and cookery classes which are suitable for individuals and groups up to eight. Friends, children, families or larger corporate teams welcome.

Saturday Masterclasses 

Usually between 10AM-3PM Ballintaggart masterclasses are designed to help you to master the basics and enhance and develop your confidence. £110 including light lunch. Speak to your Sandgrouse Travel & Expeditions travel planner today and start your Scottish cooking experience.
