On Sunday 10th May… we’ve lined up over 30 suppliers and three pop-up restaurants from Glenapp Castle, Marrbury Smokehouse and Drumbreddan Hog Roast for the Ballantrae Festival of Food & Drink on Sunday noon until 6pm. A great day out for all the family against the stunning backdrop of Ailsa Craig and Arran.
For those who want to leave their car at home so they can sample the liquid offerings at Sunday’s Ballantrae Festival of Food & Drink, shuttle buses from Stranraer, Girvan and Barrhill have been organised. Details on the website www.ballantrae.org.uk/foodfestival.
Join us for lunch or afternoon tea in the congenial atmosphere of the Ballantrae Festival of Food & Drink on Sunday and listen to the Pulse Jazz Combo – “striking the right balance between entertainment and background music”
During the Ballantrae Festival of Food & Drink (Sunday) Mark Williams of Galloway Wild Foods will be showcasing the very best of Spring wild foods with short guided walks to forage for the raw materials in the area around Ballantrae which he will then bring back to the Festival to cook. On arrival at the Festival ask for more information about taking part in this unique experience.
Kirsty Wark, Celebrity MasterChef finalist and Newnight presenter will be at the festival on Sunday. She says: “I love Ayrshire, it’s where I was brought up, and I also love food, so the Festival is the perfect combination for me. It’ll be great to buy food from the area where it is actually produced. I’m coming with a big empty basket and I’m going to fill it with high quality local ingredients! I’m also looking forward to talking about my novel, The Legacy of Elizabeth Pringle, which is set on Arran, and forms part of the spectacular scenery seen from this part of the country.”
