Special event for local chefs and food producers 11.02.16

CHEFS and food producers are being invited to take part in a special industry development day as part of Enterprise Week in Derry.
The ‘Taste Our Best’ day takes place in the Guildhall on Monday, February 22 featuring a host of guest speakers including the BBC’s Paula McIntyre and celebrated Irish food critic Georgina Campbell.
Charlie Turnbull, whose success in the Dorset cheese industry has led him to become a judge in the World Cheese Awards, will also give a presentation.
The event is open to chefs and producers and will celebrate local food heritage and the food provenance of the region. A number of Donegal food businesses will also give presentations.
The event is organised by Derry City and Strabane District Council.
Tourism officer Mary Blake, who organised the event, said the day would offer some invaluable advice for local chefs and producers.
“I would really recommend the event for anyone working in the industry as it will offer the opportunity for them to find out more about the many ways they can engage with the programme for NI Year of Food.
“I am delighted to welcome so many influential figures who will explore various aspects of the industry."
