Cater Italy

I like it when my Saturday plans allow for a stop at the Edinburgh Farmers’ Market on Castle Terrace as it’s a source of high quality fare and is usually populated with friendly faces.


Today was just such an occasion. It was good to see Errington Cheese trading and it’s always a pleasure to see Rachel from Hammond Charcuterie.

After a little contemplation of what was on offer I settled upon giving a stall that was new to me a try. Called Cater Italy, it offered various traditional Italian snack items such as piadina, pizza and panini.

From their selection I chose the smoked ham and cheese camogli (£3.50). This is a roadside favourite and is essentially a focaccia toastie.


This was cooked to order on their sandwich press and soon with me. The friendly stallholders were full of smiles and good cheer.

With item in hand I munched as I strolled. The ham was outstanding and the bread first rate. The cheese could have used just a little more punch to balance things but it did bring very good meltiness.

So overall, Cater Italy served me a really good lunchtime snack. The stall provided a really good way of showcasing their catering business, based in Glasgow. If you’re looking for good quality Italian food for an event or occasion, I’d recommend you to give them a look at www.cateritaly.co.uk
