Cafe’s gold awards
Tyndrum’s Real Food Cafe has won two Gold Awards at the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards 2018 for their allergy-free foods.
Real Food Cafe owner Sarah Heward said: ‘We’ve been serving gluten-free fish and chips since we opened in 2005, well before it became a mainstream trend.
‘We’re really invested in training staff around the importance of offering gluten-free options to our diners and ensuring that we cater for a wide range of dietary requirements. The cafe was the only one in Scotland to win a Gold Award in the ‘fish and chips’ category.
Ciro’s Italian Restaurant at Loch Tay was presented with an award for the Best Family Owned Restaurant at the sixth annual Italian Awards last week.
The restaurant was located in Callander until last year when a fire broke out, destroying the shop. The owners, Ciro and Nikki Cirillo, were then offered a chance to run a restaurant in Loch Tay at a thriving family holiday park near Killin.
Fyne Homes and FyneHEAT were both awarded ‘runner-up’ at the TPAS Scotland Awards in Aviemore the other week. Karen Hilton and her team at FyneHEAT were awarded Best Practice in Developing Communities – Housing and Fabric for helping tenants save money on their fuel bills and advising on energy efficient solutions to reduce carbon emissions. Craig Baxter was recognised for his work at Fyne Homes by delivering a range of activities.
