News in from Cheshire – restaurants from across Trafford are going to be setting up kitchens at Altrincham Market this weekend for Taste Sensation ’08.
Organisers tell me it was a roaring success last year, so they will once again be serving up small portions of typical dishes that might feature on the local restaurant menus.
The idea is for people to be able to try flavours from a wide cross-section of stalls.
Flying the flag for British Food at the start of British Food Fortnight is Earle owned by celebrity chef Simon Rimmer, who will be taking a turn chefing on the stall during the day, and Altrincham’s gastro pub, The Victoria.
In addition, there’s plenty of other flavours to savour including; Caribbean, Indian, Middle Eastern, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Portuguese, and Greek.
Because this year’s event shares the date with Battle of Britain Sunday there also a 40’s theme for our entertainment – and, of course, spam fritters.
