THE LUXURIOUS and state-of-the-art kitchens at CALA’s most exclusive new development have been put to the test by one of Britain’s best loved bakers.

Great British Bake Off finalist, Ruby Bhogal, demonstrated how to achieve her signature lemon and ginger meringue pie at a select event in the suitably grand apartments of The Crescent at Donaldson’s.

Baking for new residents, business leaders, architects, CALA staff, media and influencers, Ruby brought the diverse community together for an evening which celebrated Edinburgh’s showstopping new development.

Ruby has worked as Senior Project Manager in construction in the past and now as an in-demand chef and celebrity, with her arrival in the capital being well received by the gathering of VIP guests.

Ruby said: “I was delighted when I was asked to come to Edinburgh – it’s my very first time here and it has blown me away.

“It was lovely to bake in the stunning surroundings of The Crescent. You can tell there’s a real sense of community here already.”

After demonstrating her lemon and ginger meringue pie recipe, there was enough time for a Q&A session with Ruby, where guests chatted with her about her newly found fame, her favourite recipes and behind the scenes gossip from her time in the Bake Off tent.

Philip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Director with CALA Homes (East), said: “We are always keen to bring people together in our developments to create that sense of community. Having a guest like Ruby here to join us is the icing on the cake, so to speak.

“Since we welcomed our first residents in February, we have heard a lot of great feedback on our kitchens, so we wanted to showcase and celebrate that as best we could.

“We believe that The Crescent truly is unlike any other development in Scotland, showcasing a highly modern interpretation of the finest classical architecture, and in a way that is shaped around offering quality living both inside and out.”

Designed by acclaimed architect Richard Murphy OBE, The Crescent comprises some of Edinburgh’s most sought-after new residences.

Just a mile west of Princes Street, the collection of properties in this 18-acre estate offer buyers an idyllic rural escape whilst still being in the heart of the capital.

The range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, duplexes and penthouses at The Crescent are proving popular with buyers, with a third of the first block already sold.

Two show apartments are available to view daily. Visit or call 0131 516 3018 to arrange a viewing.
