Get involved with Taste Causeway

Fri, August 10, 2018

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is calling on all local food businesses to get involved in ‘Taste Causeway – A Celebration.’

Following on from the success of Restaurant Week, the event is now evolving into a bigger celebration of our local foodie offering.

Organised by Council’s Tourism Team, the nine day event will run from November 10th – 18th.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Brenda Chivers said: “The Causeway Coast and Glens is Lonely Planet’s Number One place to visit this year and our fantastic tourism product is complemented by our range of locally produced food and drink. ‘Taste Causeway- A Celebration’ is built on the success of Restaurant Week and this year we are calling on even more local businesses to get involved, providing visitors with memorable experiences in our local restaurants, bars and cafes.”

Destination Manager Kerrie Mc Gonigle added: “Food Tourism is one of the fastest growing travel trends with destinations constantly improving their quality and range of dining experiences. I am delighted that the Causeway Coast and Glens has firmly established itself as a fabulous foodie scene and ‘Taste Causeway- A Celebration’ will only strengthen this. I would invite all our trade partners including bars, food producers and food tour operators, to share in our enthusiasm and showcase a flavour of the Causeway Coast and Glens.”

The Causeway Coast and Glens has an extensive foodie repertoire offering visitors street food, artisan markets and fine dining. If you have a unique food experience, a speciality menu where visitors can sample local ales or beers or get to experience the art of local bread making, we would like to hear from you. This celebration is more than just a dining experience, it will allow visitors to become fully immersed with local produce.

The closing date for applications is Friday 17th August.

If you would like to participate email engagement@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk. Please include a brief description of the event with details on pricing, venue and the date you are proposing.

Please note all offerings must include the use of local produce.
