Scottish Food Fortnight
18 September - 3 October 2004
“TAKE IT EASY….”
“Take some time out,” urges Jo Papworth, Project Manager of Scottish Food Fortnight “and enjoy Scottish food and drink”.
Jo continued: “Maybe it’s been a while since your last proper Sunday Roast, or maybe you’ve been so busy that you haven’t had a chance to prepare food from scratch for a while. In today’s hectic world it happens to us all so why not make a special effort over these two weeks, take a detour from your normal routine and go to a farmers market, or your local butchers shop - take some time out and rediscover the joys of buying and cooking local produce.
“Scottish Food Fortnight makes it easy for you to buy local. There is something going on wherever you are in Scotland – Farmers’ Markets, in particular, are a great source of fresh, seasonal food and drink – and it hasn’t flown round the world to get to your plate. With promotions and discounts all over Scotland, local food and drink is even cheaper than usual so you can buy even more.
“With festivals, fun-days, promotions, discounts, special SFF menus in hotels and restaurants, cookery demonstrations with celebrity chefs and loads more – there is something for everyone. But you don’t even need to leave your home. You can celebrate Scottish Food Fortnight by cooking a ‘local food meal’ and take pride in the fact that all the food was reared / grown and sold within just a few miles. In addition to great food and drink you know that you’ve supported your local community.
“Scottish Food Fortnight involves the entire nation in celebrating our food, our drink, our culture and our hospitality. Scotland is rightly famous for all of these, let’s take the time to enjoy them.”
Get your local ingredients and make traditional meals. They are tasty, nutritious, healthy and may be cheaper than you think. Plan ahead and what you make might last for two or three days used in different meals
Think about it!!
