Scot Flavour Fortnight 2011

Flavour Fortnight, a region wide celebration of local food and drink in Dumfries & Galloway, has been confirmed for 3-18th September 2011. More than 80 events will be organised and hosted by local businesses across the region, from Langholm in the east to Portpatrick in the west.

Timed to parallel the national celebration of Scotland's larder, Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight, Flavour Fortnight is led by Savour the Flavours of Dumfries & Galloway and is funded by LEADER and Dumfries & Galloway Council. Each of the 80+ events included within the Flavour Fortnight programme are organised by people working within Dumfries & Galloway's food and drink industry, and they have been designed to encourage people to engage with and enjoy the quality produce available in the region.

Among the events confirmed so far are:
The Art of Fungi - a wild food forage around an art gallery
My Big Fat Greek Mezze - delicious Greek cuisine made with locally produced food
Motorcycle Menu - a multi location local food menu designed for touring bikers
Dexter in a Day - an intensive beef butchery course
Food & Words: A Shared Intimacy - a literary celebration of food in a traditional bookshop
Lochinch Castle Food Festival - bringing together a feast of local food and drink producers
Meet the Highlanders - conservation grazing on National Trust for Scotland land
Jam & Jazz - great music and delicious preserves

Plus there will be lots of open days, local menus, demonstrations, tastings, talks, forages, workshops, new products and much, much more taking place throughout the 16-day event.

Liz Ramsay of Savour the Flavours says the 2011 event programme will help to position Flavour Fortnight as one of the most important food events in the UK.
"Flavour Fortnight began last year with very modest ambitions but we were overwhelmed by the support from the industry, keen to showcase the quality food and drink available in Dumfries & Galloway. We've just started pulling together the final programme of events and it's looking as though there will be twice as many events as last year which is fantastic. I'm particularly excited to see that so much creativity and innovation has gone into developing Flavour Fortnight events, it really does demonstrate the passion of our industry, and we're looking forward to revealing the final event line up later this month."
