Durham-inspired dishes lead month-long food campaign
A MONTH-long campaign to promote local food has begun.
Restaurants and cafes across County Durham are offering food and drink inspired by the area, as part of Taste Durham Month.
In all, 21 dishes are available including a Durham steak and ale pie, 12-hour cooked Headlam reared lamb, Rockliffe Hall’s Raby estate venison burger and the Teesdale lead miners pasty.
Melanie Sensicle, chief executive of Visit County Durham, said: “A really excellent meal is one of those experiences that help create lasting, fond memories of a place.
“It’s for this reason that we have worked so hard to develop the Taste Durham scheme over the years and why we are promoting it throughout September.
“With a fascinating food heritage and great local produce, much of which is at its best in September, it seemed the perfect time to launch the very first Taste Durham Month.”
