Lancashire’s Finest Showcased at Hipping Hall
Four of Lancashire’s top ranked, and award-winning chefs gathered together to create a Lancashire Feast to celebrate Lancashire Day at Hipping Hall on Monday 27th November.
The four chefs were all raised in Lancashire and created an eight-course menu inspired by the produce, history and provenance of Lancashire. Courses featured great Lancashire ingredients; like black pudding, Morecambe Bay cockles, grouse, Goosnargh duck and ended with Lancashire Eccles cakes with Truffle & Black currant.
Chef Oli Martin from Hipping Hall said, “Lancashire’s really got it going on at the moment and it was great to work with fellow chefs in the county to make the most of the great produce. We’re really lucky here the landscapes give us great raw ingredients to work with, like salt marsh lamb & Goosenargh duck.”
He added: “Working alongside your fellow chefs is inspiring. We’re all working with the same ingredients, but the combinations and dishes are distinctively different. It’s as exiting for the chefs as it is for the eaters.”
“Lancashire’s food and drink scene is nationally recognised and these events are all about building county pride and sharing what we do best, serving up great food with real integrity,” said Chris Bury from The Cartford Inn.
Lancashire’s food and drink sector is worth over £1 billion* to Lancashire’s economy and is one of the key drivers to attracting over 67 million visitors each year.
“Lancashire is fast becoming the must-visit foodie destination with good reason. Lancashire Day events are all about collaboration and celebration of the best of Lancashire’s plentiful and highest quality larder,” said Ruth Connor, Chief Executive of Marketing Lancashire.
