Some of Fife’s finest food producers are set to be quizzed by one of Scotland’s best-known food authors and broadcasters this weekend as part of the St Andrews Day celebrations.
Puddledub Pork, the Very Lovely Sauce Company, Peat Inn, The Old Cheese Shop, Pillars of Hercules Organic Farm and Jannetta’s Gelateria will all be grilled by Fife Food Ambassador Christopher Trotter, a successful chef and committee member of the Guild of Food Writers, at a special event to be held at The Byre Theatre in St Andrews on Sunday (November 29, 2015).
They will take part in discussions on Fife’s food industry and answer questions from the floor.
Trotter, who will lead the discussions, said: “I have known Jannettas since I was a child – THE ice cream shop in town and part of the fabric of St Andrews. I have also known Owen for many years so, when I was asked to organise this ‘conversation’, it was obvious to me that a business being run by the fourth generation has seen many changes in St Andrews and I felt that Owen’s perspective on food and produce in Fife would make a great contribution to the event. I have chosen a varied group of people each of whom can bring a different perspective to the table and provide a fascinating insight into Food in Fife.”
Owen Hazel of Jannetta’s said: “I am absolutely delighted to have been approached by such an esteemed figure in the world of food, as well as a true authority on Fife food, and am very much looking forward to taking part in what should be a lively and exciting discussion.”
The event will run in two sessions:
Peat Inn, The Old Cheese Shop and Pillars of Hercules Organic Farm – 11am
Puddledub Pork, the Very Lovely Sauce Company and Jannetta’s Gelateria – 3pm
