PENDLE HILL LANDSCAPE PARTNERSHIP FOODIE FORAY

Local produce in the spotlight again as Landscape Partnership prepares for an autumn feast of food and foraging

HARD on the heels of another highly successful Clitheroe Food Festival, the team at Pendle Hill Landscape partnership is preparing to celebrate the best of the area’s local produce in a special event aimed at foodies on both sides of the hill.

The Pendle Hill Foodie Foray is a celebration of local food producers and the distinctive local dishes found at the foot of our landmark hill. Starting on Saturday, October 13, the four-day programme includes walks, talks, foraging and feasting.

A programme of walks and talks, which explore the landscape and the wild and cultivated foods found within it, will be backed up by some mouth-watering feasts at some of the area’s most popular eateries.

Events are still being added to the programme, but highlights include:

• A food to fork foraging lunch at Gazegill Organic Farm
• A ‘Summit Safari’ linear walk linking two local gastropubs
• Unique set menus at participating venues
• A celebratory autumn feast showcasing the best seasonal local produce

The Landscape Partnership’s sustainable tourism officer Hetty Byrne said: “This exciting new event is a celebration of the landscape, producers, chefs and local delicacies that originate in the communities that nestle beneath Pendle Hill.

“In researching the area’s food traditions, we’ve uncovered some unusual and unique local delicacies and forgotten recipes. We’re hoping to bring people from both sides of the hill together for a celebration of local food and culinary traditions.”

Supported by the Assheton Arms, the Barley Mow, the Spread Eagle and a number of restaurants and cafes across Pendle and Ribble Valley, special menus and dishes will be available at participating food outlets.

Register interest at www.pendlehillproject.com – full details coming soon!

Opportunities to be involved are still available and any local business who would like to participate should get in touch with the Pendle Landscape Partnership Team on 01200 420420 or email hetty.byrne@lancashire.gov.uk
