All about the Good Stuff
The last year has really seen meal delivery services come into their own, with a wider selection of at your-convenience tastiness than ever before. Always savvy to keep it healthy though, and a new venture from brothers Leandro and Alberto Crolla, Good Stuff, focuses on simple but delicious creations. The Edinburgh business offers up macro-counted meals, cooked by professional chefs and using seasonal ingredients – with prawn red pesto pasta, chicken pad-thai, vegan BBQ pulled jackfruit and halloumi and cauli rice just some of the treats on the menu.

The new Johnnie Walker Whisky Terrace – decorated with floral arrangements and furniture reminiscent of the relaunched Glenkinchie Distillery – will offer a special menu of whisky cocktails alongside views across the Edinburgh city skyline and the Firth of Forth.
