About Us

 

Our origins

Nancie 

You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, nugget-kabobs, nugget creole, nugget gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple nuggets, lemon nuggets, coconut nuggets, pepper nuggets, nugget soup, nugget stew, nugget salad, nugget and potatoes, nugget burger, nugget sandwich…

Making her way out of the Mediterranean, Nancie grew up in London and moved a fair bit before settling in Scotland at the age of 10 where she experienced her first square sausage. She now studies here, photographs and writes here (though that happens everywhere). Coming from a varied background she learned very quickly that she loves exploring and a lot of her inspiration comes from her curiousity of the world. She likes to do many things but doesn’t have enough time for them all. She likes baking, devouring chicken nuggets, and is working on telling you all that in Japanese.

Laurence 

Nancie, when asking Laurence to complete his About Me summary: What do you like? What do you like? 

Laurence, referencing The Notebook: It’s not that simple!

Laurence hailed out of the Viking island of Shetland, grew up eating Malaysian and traditional Scottish food from his father’s very own farm, which resulted in a double helping of carbs (rice and ‘tatties’). He played football in some of the stormiest weather in all of UK, which not only resulted in him becoming surprisingly aggressive on the field despite his supremely friendly nature, and developing calves of Zeus, but also becoming a human furnace even while we are facing winter in Edinburgh. He likes gaming, travelling, shrimp, foreign music festivals, and dogs. 

Edinburgh

You can try the Wagamama’s here, but there’s also a Wagamama’s in Amsterdam, Denmark, Belgium, and the US. Go to the only Bell’s Diner, go somewhere else.

We are a couple who live in Edinburgh, our favourite city to be in. We are lucky to have a varied group of friends who have much more cultured lives than us; who invite us to gigs, cosy bars, restaurants and hideaway gardens. Through this we discovered that Edinburgh is brimming with so much more life, culture, and character than just the Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street, and Grassmarket.

Edinburgh is a centre for the underground scene, which somehow merges traditional Scottish independent businesses as you’ve never seen it, with a global world culture. We share these hidden secrets with you which are waiting to be discovered in this deceptive and artistic city of all layers.  

The whiskey here is also fantastic.
