Festival for all tastes
WHILE Twin Towns Services Club has always prided itself on supporting local produce, its Taste the Tweed festival this month has taken that commitment to a new level.
Yesterday Twin Towns chefs demonstrated parts of their new menu featuring Tweed Valley Whey Farmhouse Cheeses.
The soft and creamy range of cheeses is handmade at Mooball. Chef Nicholas Drew said it was normal for the Twin Towns Horizons restaurant to change its menu every three months to reflect the seasonal availability of local produce, however the current menu was designed specifically for Taste the Tweed and would run throughout this month, only with an even greater focus on local produce businesses.
"We always use local produce from the Tweed, but we're using even more this month to promote our hard working local businesses. The menu is just chocked full," Mr Drew said.
"We use Tweed Valley Whey cheeses for our grilled haloumi and our crumbed camembert cheese on the Sunday brunch menu."
Mr Drew said Twin Towns customers were pleased to know many of the ingredients used in their favourite dishes were sourced locally.
"Quite a few of our regulars notice the differences in our menu and want to know where the products are from," he said.
The next Taste the Tweed event is on tomorrow with a demonstration by Bio Organic Farm Produce.
