Grazing by Mark Greenaway unveiled at Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian. Carefully created to celebrate local and seasonal produce and producers, the simple yet incredibly flavoursome menu features dishes made with Scottish produce sourced from within 100 miles of the hotel.
Chef Mark’s 100 Mile Menu is an ode to Scotland and its incredible produce, a world of seasonal flavours and colours to discover bite after bite. Featuring four dishes, the tasting menu will alter every four to six weeks ensuring that guests taste only the best seasonal produce, with authenticity and freshness guaranteed.

Chef Patron Mark Greenaway said: “It was an absolute pleasure working on this menu with my team, it will be a truly evolving menu and we are all looking forward to creating new dishes using the freshest local produce. We see this as the natural evolution of grazing because we have always championed local and seasonal Scottish produce, this just takes things to a whole new level for us and to be able to support such micro farmers or producers is a real honour and pleasure for the whole team. I love uncomplicated dishes and appreciate all the producers we are working with within the 100 miles radius, and I hope this menu really shows how much we value their work.”
