Hospitality runs through my blood

Yasmine & family, Il Pescatore

I was brought up in my parents’ restaurant, the Il Pescatore (one of Fife’s first Italian restaurants to open in the 90s) from the age of 3 years old. My favourite childhood memories are based in the restaurant from the chefs leaving me the tiramisu bowl to ‘clean’, to making my own pizza to pushing my brother on the food delivery trolley down the alleyway pretending we were superheroes. Working from a young age and throughout my studies it was a natural path to return to my home village of Limekilns and take over my parents’ family run business. I especially love the location of the building, being in the heart of Limekilns overlooking the Firth of the Forth.

Opening Coorie has been a dream of mine for several years.

My passion is for friendly personal service along with offering food that comes from the heart. I wanted to create a welcoming, ‘coorie’ stop where you can eat, drink and gather with your loved ones with emphasis on a relaxed friendly service so you can sit back, relax and let us look after you.

Yasmine & the pup Oscar

I am proud to be Scottish. Scotland in a passion of mine.

The inspiration for our name ‘Coorie’ is based on my love of Scotland and the great outdoors. When I am not at Coories’ you will find me outdoors with my husband and handsome pup, Oscar, whether walking the coastline, running the trails, hiking a munro or simply sitting with my flask of tea.

Being a keen traveller and having been fortunate to travel all over the world, my heart and my passion still belongs to Scotland.
