PLATEFULS of foodie delights will be served up at The Scotland Food & Drink Show 2017 at The Royal Highland Centre this weekend.

No-one will be too young, or too old, to enjoy what’s on offer at the new two-day free-to-attend celebration of the best of what we eat and drink.

A lot of technical expertise will be on show which is sure to appeal to adults, but young people are definitely in the mix with activity areas designed just for them.

Children develop their sense of taste at an early age and there is nothing better than getting them helping to cook and bake from a young age.

“That was why, when we designed this show, we felt it was vital that we included exciting ways for children to be involved,” says show organiser Rebecca Thompson.

Highlights of the weekend include cooking demonstrations with chefs including Gary Maclean, winner of Masterchef the Professionals 2016, Mark Greenaway, Paul Wedgwood and Dan Ashmore taking part.

There will also be masterclasses from The Liquid Academy, a fully dedicated kids area including a bouncy castle and inflatable slide as well as lot’s a different activities for children throughout the day.

“The show is at half-term time so parents will also ­welcome the fact that their young ones will be entertained,” adds Thompson.

Although the emphasis of the Scotland Food & Drink Show 2017 is all about enjoying top quality produce, there will be chance to learn more about the industry and its career opportunities.

There will be a careers space where the foodies of the future will be able to find out about working in the industry.

Advice will be available about working in hospitality, farming and manufacturing from both colleges and training providers.
