Taste North, the north Highland's premier food, drink and craft event, in association with Venture North and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), are back for the third year running and this year return to Ackergill Tower with a packed line up and a leading name in the culinary world to head up the fantastic schedule and inspire the foodie passion in us all! Nick Nairn will be joining us as our very special guest this year at Ackergill Tower on 1st October 2017.
Nick Nairn is synonymous with spreading the word about Scotland's wonderful natural larder and using it well and couldn't be better placed to highlight the phenomenal produce on the door step of Caithness & Sutherland.
Nick will be joining us to lead several Taste North masterclasses and will also head up the judging panel for our annual Taste North Challenge. The Taste North Challenge, developed and supported by food group Baxters & the Gordon & Ena Baxter Foundation is also in its third year and this year the Challenge will cast its net even wider, with categories for both Youth and Open entrants - supported by the generosity of the Developing the Young Workforce initiative through Caithness Chamber and Mackays Hotel Wick.
Our winning prizes come from Nick Nairn Cook School, Mackays Hotel and Developing the Young Workforce, not to mention a winner's hamper full of Taste North goodies and the coveted Gordon & Ena Baxter Taste North Challenge Cup, all up for grabs.
The Exhibitors Market is even bigger this year and packed with the very best in local food, drink & artisan products. Remember, card payments won't be possible so all purchases will be cash only. Details about the fantastic
