From fine dining to fresh produce, Inverness is up there with the very best, offering a range of enticing food products and eating experiences to those who choose to “Dine Inverness”.

With local seafood second to none, gorgeous game from the surrounding areas and locally produced accompaniments ranging from dairy products to drams, Inverness is recognised as the culinary capital of the Highlands.

Highland Specialities to be Showcased

Those who wish to sample some of the delights on offer in Inverness can head to the Tasty Ness festival, where local specialities are showcased for the consumer who will also be offered the opportunity to sample and purchase these exciting products.

Tasty Ness is the perfect place to get a flavour of all that Inverness has to offer; from local beers brewed on the shores of Loch Ness, to artisanal breads and cakes cooked on a croft overlooking the city, the event endeavours to illustrate the diversity of dining on offer in and around Inverness.

Exhibitors will include: La Tortilla Asesina, Zizzi’s, Loch Ness Brewery, The Whisky Shop, Struan Apiaries, Highland Beef Online, Capability Brown’s and Saladworx – among others.

Award-Winning Food from Inverness

The showcase of local specialities comes less than a month after the annual Highlands and Islands Food and Drink Awards, where a number of Inverness-area food innovators efforts were acknowledged with nominations or accolades.

Organisers say the event will not only give consumers the chance to try new products and familiarise themselves with local foods – but also presents a great opportunity to stock up on treats and gifts for the festive season.

  • The 2012 Tasty Ness event will take place today (Saturday November 10th) at the Mercure Inverness Hotel, Church St, Inverness from 11am to 4pm. Tickets can be bought on the door for £7.50 with under 12s going free.
