I set up the farm shop with my husband in 2005 to sell our own beef. Since then the shop has grown more than we could ever imagine. We now support hundreds of local suppliers, have changed the way we farm and built a kitchen on site. Nowadays I can be found in all aspects of the business however most of the time I supervise the kitchen and love spending time helping in the shop so I can chat to our customers.

Smoked Salmon Blinis with Horseradish Crème Fraiche

Smoked Salmon Canapes

Christmas Canapes

Christmas is a wonderful time to bring the family together and spend precious time with loved ones. It can also be quite stressful for the hosts with big meals, lots of guests and little time to relax. This Christmas Canape recipe is incredibly tasty and very easy, the perfect canape for over the festive period.

We make both potato scone blinis and plain blinis here in our kitchen. These tiny little blinis are designed especially for canapes and are perfect for this Christmas canape recipe. Give yourself a break and pick up a pack. They are handmade, by us, just as you would at home. The only difference is that you’ll have more time to spend with your family, if you grab a pack of ours, rather than making them yourself.

We’d also recommend East Neuk Kilnhouse salmon, it’s absolutely fantastic. If you are looking for a good smoked salmon to go with this recipe then you’ve got to pick up a pack of their salmon. They were recently on Hairy Bikers as well!

We hope you enjoy this as much as we do!


- 150g crème fraiche
- 1 tbsp Tracklements Strong Horseradish Cream
- Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
- Rapeseed oil
- 200g East Neuk Kilnhouse smoked salmon
- Dill fronds to garnish
- Ardross Blinis


Mix together the crème fraiche, Strong Horseradish Cream and lemon, stir well to combine. To serve, top each of the pancakes with the horseradish crème fraiche, followed by a slice of smoked salmon and finish with a few dill fronts.
