Scotchtails - About
About

Artisan scotch eggs, hand made in Hackney. Find us at Borough Market.

HISTORY OF THE SCOTCH EGG

Although many associate the scotch egg with motorway service station food, it has more illustrious origins. It is not of Scottish descent, to the surprise of many of our customers, but seemingly conceived by Fortnum and Mason in 1738 as a commuter snack. Whether the department store were the originators or simply those to champion the delicacy is unknown. Speculation suggests that they were inspired by the Moghul dish narcissi kofta, which translates as 'narcissus meatballs'. Wherever it came from the scotch egg is steeped in the same mystery exhibited by its anonymous spherical form, waiting to be cut open to reveal it's titillating contents.

SCOTCHTAILS STORY


Scotchtails was conceived by Oliver Hiam and Dominic Hamdy while at university. A genuine love and excitement for the scotch egg spurred them on to experiment with its form and embark on a mission to perfect it. This journey led them to create eggs varying from the dependable traditional pork to the more adventurous squid and chorizo.

Their first attempt to commercialise their home made creations found them at London’s historical Berwick Street Market alongside fruit vendors and bric a brac hawkers as if from times of old. From here they were invited to apply for a pitch at Borough Market and have operated a stone’s throw from London Bridge ever since.
