Last year's Taste North began at 11am with a full schedule of events throughout the day including chef's demonstrations, cocktail masterclasses and family workshops. Our Exhibitor's Tent will offer everyone the opportunity to sample food from local eateries and producers, taste our local tipples and see an array of artisan crafts from right here in Caithness & Sutherland. For families there will be plenty of children’s entertainment and various opportunities for them to get their hands sticky and learn where their food comes from.
Taste North would not have been possible without the support of NDA, Kongsberg, the Gordon & Ena Baxter Foundation, North Highland College and Burghfield House.
In conjunction with Baxters and The Gordon & Ena Baxter Foundation, our first year we launched the Taste North Challenge competition to get our students coming up with new recipe ideas that reflect the abundance of incredible ingredients right here on our doorstep. Corey Jackson, a local Professional Cookery student at North Highland College UHI was our first winner.
This year the competition is back and we can't wait to see what all our passionate young culinary talent comes up with. The judging process will begin shortly for the final long list and the finalists will all be present on the day to showcase their creations. The final winner will be announced at the festival.
