Public urged to sup­port Scot­tish Food and Drink Fort­night this month

Campbeltown Courier - - FEATURE -

Scot­tish Food and Drink Fort­night is a na­tion­wide event which sup­ports and pro­motes Scot­land’s pro­duce and the peo­ple who grow, make, cook and sell it. Once again, the fort­night is en­cour­ag­ing the great Scot­tish public to take part by chang­ing just one thing (#onething­fort­night) about how much Scot­tish food and drink they buy and eat. This year’s celebration will take place be­tween Satur­day Septem­ber 2 and Sun­day Septem­ber 17 in­clu­sive, and we would love ev­ery­one across Scot­land, of all ages, to join in to cham­pion Scot­land’s de­li­cious larder and change one thing (#onething­fort­night) for 2017. Ty­ing in with the Year of His­tory, Heritage and Ar­chae­ol­ogy, Scot­tish Food and Drink Fort­night is pro­fil­ing the fol­low­ing daily food themes and ask­ing ev­ery­one, to sim­ply change one thing (#onething­fort­night): Fiona Rich­mond, Head of Re­gional Food, said: ‘Us­ing the daily themes as in­spi­ra­tion, we are search­ing the archives for his­tor­i­cal recipes and ask­ing chefs to pro­vide us with recipes that of­fer their own mod­ern take on a theme. We will be shar­ing these recipes, old and new, with the public, along­side other fas­ci­nat­ing and de­li­cious hints, tips and facts about Scot­tish food and drink. ‘All the while, we’ll ask­ing peo­ple to make use of these ideas to change ‘#onething­fort­night’ about the way in which they in­ter­act with Scot­tish pro­duce. For ex­am­ple, an of­fice worker may switch to Scotch Beef or Scot­tish Salmon in their daily sand­wich; fam­i­lies may seek out Scot­tish la­bels on food and drink at the su­per­mar­ket or visit their lo­cal butcher or baker – the pos­si­bil­i­ties are end­less. ‘Just one change can make a huge dif­fer­ence.’ Scot­tish Food and Drink Fort­night 2017 of­fi­cially launched at the start of Septem­ber.
