Top names from Tayside and Fife to appear at major Scottish food festival

Angus, Dundee City, Fife, and Perth and Kinross councils have teamed up to sponsor the Taste of Tayside and Fife tent.

Fear not, however, as Taste of Grampian will be hosting six “virtual” tents at the festival, which takes place online between Friday September 18 and Sunday September 20. Each tent will be streaming a variety of videos over the event weekend.

Angus, Dundee City, Fife, and Perth and Kinross councils have teamed up to sponsor the Taste of Tayside and Fife tent.

Some of the businesses taking part include: 71 Brewing and Verdant Spirits from Dundee; Pilgrim’s Gin, Deli-Isher’s Cuisine, The Dory Bistro and Gallery and Janettas Gelateria, all based in Fife; and Provender Brown Delicatessen, The Highland Chocolatier, Persie Distillery and Broadslap Fruit Farm, all from Perth and Kinross.

Councillor Altany Craik, convener for Fife Council’s economy, tourism, strategic planning and transportation committee, added: “As Fife Council continues to assist local businesses recover from lockdown, the economic development team is employing innovative ways to assist them in connecting with new customers.
