At Trigony we take great care in sourcing our ingredients, we are very lucky that Dumfries and Galloway has a rich and varied farming community.
We are surrounded at the Hotel by an organic dairy and all the hotels milk is organic. Within ten miles of the Hotel we have hill farms with superb quality lamb and lowland Galloway Cattle similar to Aberdeen Angus.
Our Butcher supplies us with award winning black pudding and the best local beef & lamb. Our Haggis comes a little further, though we think it is well worth the travel from the award winning Cockburns of Dingwall on The Black Isle in Invernesshire. The pork and traditional Ayrshire cure bacon and sausages come from Robertsons of Ayr.
Dumfriesshire has such a wonderful natural larder, which means that wild roe venison, wood pigeon and partridge are all available locally in season.
Just a short drive to the south the Solway coast still supports a thriving fishing community so that fresh Solway Scallops and sea bass are nearly always in abundance, weather permitting.
All this adds up to a wonderful choice of local food, with a few far flung additions like our free range rare breed “Label Anglais” Chickens that come from England weekly, we have used them for years and think their flavour is wonderful, they take nearly twice as long to mature as the average organic chicken! We are also proud of the Organic Shetland Salmon we have sourced which although farmed has a delicious taste and texture quite different to the usual farmed salmon.
We try to grow as much organic fruit and veg as we can ourselves in our recently restored small walled garden.
With all these quality ingredients our food at Trigony is quite simply based on the timeless tradition of European & Asian peasant cooking. And it is this heritage alongside our own modern influence that makes our rustic cuisine so popular.
