Staff members from one of Scotland’s leading fish and chips shops enjoyed a visit to the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh this week.
Alex Dima and Cat Dima from The Real Food Cafe in Tyndrum, Perthshire, traveled to the capital on 10th May with café owner Sarah Heward to receive their SVQ Level 3 Modern Apprenticeships in Hospitality, Supervision and Leadership from local MSP Bruce Crawford.
Mr Crawford, MSP for Stirling, also took the time to congratulate The Real Food Cafe’s frier Magda Ganea who earlier this year was recognised as the best fish frier in Scotland at the Drywite Young Fish Frier of the Year Award.
The group was given a personal tour of the parliament building from Mr Crawford before meeting with First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who took the opportunity to introduce herself to an unofficial team member - Magda’s baby Sophie Ganea!
Situated on the popular tourist trail the West Highland Way, The Real Food Café has been serving high quality fish and chips since 2005 and welcomes nearly a quarter of a million customers every year.
