The island’s Food and Drink Festival gets under way on Saturday.
The festival continues to be the promotion of local produce and businesses, and visitors this year will be able to experience new activities, meet new producers, taste a new beer and see a unique demonstration.
New producers to the festival include Noa Bakery with artisan breads, Mannbiltong with their tasty Manx beef speciality and Manx Pies to Go, made on the island with locally-produced ingredients.
In the CAMRA bar, visitors will be able to enjoy PC Brew, recently launched by Bushy’s to mark 150 years of the Manx police force and Manx coffee porter, brewed by the Doghouse Brewery for the CAMRA festival earlier in the year.
New activities in the Farm in the Festival area include a demonstration of the complete production chain from newly harvested wheat, through flour making to baked breads. Meet some farmers, find out more about Laxey Glen Mills flour, collect some recipes and be inspired to bake. Visitors will also be able to see where their milk comes from – straight from a cow.
Conor Cummins is well known to many – but probably not as a pancake maker, aided and abetted by Dot Tilbury. See him in action on Sunday at 3pm.
