A BRAND new food fes­ti­val is set to take place in Mal­laig show­cas­ing the very best food and drink found along Scot­land’s iconic Road to the Isles.

With seafood at the heart of Scot­land’s west high­land coast­line, it’s nat­u­rally at the heart of the fes­ti­val.

Chaired by Shirley Spear OBE, The Big Fish De­bate, will see a panel of ex­perts dis­cuss is­sues sur­round­ing the sup­ply chain of fish from Scot­tish waters.

Gourmet stall­hold­ers and lo­cal pro­duc­ers, such as Great Glen Charcuterie and Glen­finnan Brew­ery, will have stalls along the pier side, of­fer­ing peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to sam­ple some world-renowned pro­duce through­out the day.

Cook­ery demon­stra­tions from a se­lec­tion of Scot- land’s top chefs will take place in the fish mar­ket in Mal­laig Har­bour.

Duncan Gib­son of the award-win­ning Glen­finnan House Ho­tel, Harry Mar­shall from the West High­land Ho­tel and Sarah Win­ning­ton-In­gram of the beau­ti­ful Ari­saig House are amongst those head­lin­ing.

Top­ping the evening is a din­ner and ceilidh, held in Mal­laig and Mo­rar Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

Sarah Win­ning­ton-In­gram, chair­woman of the Road to the Isles Mar­ket­ing Group, said: ‘This will be a great day out and a real com­mu­nity event but the un­der­ly­ing mes­sage is that we have great cui­sine in this area and su­perb lo­cal pro­duce.’

Free to at­tend, Taste the Wild takes place on Sat­ur­day Septem­ber 10 at 11am.
