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.
