Bite into the Falkirk Food festival

Falkirk Food Festival

Perhaps slightly miffed With all the attention being paid to the big smokes on either end of the M8, Falkirk has decided to blow its own

trumpet and has announced its plans for the second Falkirk International Food Festival.

Taking place Sat 25 Jul—Sun 2 Aug, | the festival has doubled in size from last year. Brian Turner, the presenter of Ready, Steady, Cook Will put the match to the touch paper and get I things off to a borling start when he officially opens the festival at the Beancross Restaurant and Bar on Sat 25 at 1 1am.

Highlights include the chance to sample food as it was prepared several generations ago in the authentic 1820s Georgian kitchen at Callendar House. Lemetti's, which offered frogs' 1 legs last year, has decided to give its menu more Of a bite this time With the inclusion of shark steaks. Demonstrations, speCial gourmet evenings and themed meals will all complete the experience.

No doubt Falkirk's most famous sons, the bibulous band Arab Strap, Will be pleased that the Behind The Wall pub is showcasing an exclusive Festival Ale as well as laying in extra stocks of Hoegaarden. Sup deeply, Falkirk’s Culinary reputation depends on it.


Keep your eyes skinned for these places which have either opened recently or Will open shortly:

Mussel Inn 61—65 Rose Street, Edinburgh, 225 5979. A new seafood restaurant which is run by shellfish farmers who bring their wares down to the restaurant from the sea lochs of the West Coast. Simplicity is the key to the preparation with platters of scallops and oysters on offer alongside smoked salmon and kilo pots of mussels.

Bar Ce Lona 427 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, 332 2528. It’s likely that this place will be the talk of the town when it opens in early August. Taking their cue from the fantastical imagination of Gaudi, the interior designers have brought some Catalan verve to Sauchiehall Street. Watch this space. (Jonathan Trew)
