Celebrating Scotland’s abundance of summer produce, Edinburgh’s Fhior restaurant is preparing a completely plant-based version of its popular ‘Mixtapes’ supper club series.

On Saturday 22nd and Saturday 29th of June, chef-owner Scott Smith will be showcasing an all-vegan menu, with paired drinks by sommelier Phil Provart.

The Mixtapes concept is an intimate supper club for up to 10 people, taking guests on a culinary journey inspired by the diversity of music mixtapes. The Fhior team curates a fresh menu every month, including some of their current favourites, new releases, and early previews of what is in development, using inventive techniques to highlight limited seasonal ingredients.

Held within Fhior’s private dining room and kitchen, each Mixtapes dish is cooked and served directly in front of guests. The limited number of seats at the table allows menus to feature rare ingredients that are in too short supply for the restaurant’s main menu.

Each Mixtapes menu is only revealed as the night unfolds, and the experience usually lasts a leisurely three hours.

Fhior, which opened in June 2018, is co-owned by husband-and-wife team, Scott and Laura Smith, with Scott heading up the kitchen. Since opening, the restaurant has won numerous awards and is listed in the Good Food Guide and Michelin Guide.

Outwith the Mixtapes offer, guests visiting the restaurant can choose between a seven or ten-course tasting menu.

Tickets for the special vegan Mixtapes events cost £110, and are fully inclusive of all food, drinks and service for the evening.
