We will have Native Aberdeen Angus beef available to purchase across at MacDuff Butcher during and after the event. The first time in 30 years this 100% native Angus beef will be available to purchase in Edinburgh! These traditional Aberdeen Angus’ have no imported bloodlines. The Soutars of Dunlouise Angus, Kingston farm work with original British genetics and are currently using bulls which date back at least 50 years; bringing new life to old bloodlines.

A brief synopsis of each film:

Look back in Angus:

This film tells the extraordinary and compelling story of how a small Scottish cow came to dominate global cuisine. This is a story that unravels a surprising history, shadowing the Scottish diaspora over the last three centuries and taking us from the mountains and straths of Scotland, across the Atlantic to North America and south to the plains of Argentina. This is a story of not just amazing food, but also genetic dominance, telling how the ancient genes of Scottish cattle are now found across the world in breeds as far apart as New Zealand and Japan.

Wagyu Confidential:

Visiting farms and chefs across different prefectures in Japan, the film features interviews with three-starred Michelin chefs, movie stars and renowned foodies, to shine a light on the legend that is Wagyu, and dispel the countless myths around it.

Steak Revolution:

A gourmet road trip in search for the best steak in the world. Breeders, farmers, butchers, cooks, historians and business men all around the world (France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, UK,USA, Canada, Japan, Argentina, Brazil) help us understand the (r)evolution taking place right now and the challenges that lay ahead.

We look forward to seeing you! Book here.
