A mouth-watering lunch is set to bring the community of Queensferry together as it aims to ‘welcome the world to lunch.’
The ‘Scotland Welcomes the World to Lunch’ event on Saturday, September 6, is one of the signature events in this year’s Forth Bridges Festival, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Forth Road Bridge.
Celebrity Scots chef Nick Nairn dropped in to Queensferry this week to launch the event and he will create the mouthwatering menu for diners using the finest Scottish produce. Diners can enjoy a feast of artisan sandwiches with Scottish salmon, Inverurie sirloin beef and roasted vegetables, accompanied by a fresh super salad and followed by a Scottish berry trifle dessert.
Nick Nairn said of the event: ‘‘I am thrilled to be involved in the Festival. Scotland is going through a food and drink revolution at the moment and this is a brilliant chance to celebrate our fantastic natural larder with the people of Scotland against the amazing backdrop of the Bridges.”
Local radio station Radio Forth will also be involved with live entertainment also expected while the town’s High Street will host a large-scale Scottish food and drinks market.
The lunch event, which will be staged at the Hawes Promenade car park, will see up to 800 diners per sitting, from midday. Tickets cost £13 for adults and £8 for children plus booking fee and will be on sale from www.forthbridgesfestival.com
