For the third year running, the tourism partnership of Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham will be holding their annual food challenge, this year supporting Visit Wales’s 2018 Year of the Sea marketing theme.
Restaurants who wish to be involved can find out more on the North East Wales Facebook page, or by contacting [email protected] There will be a launch event on 10th January, after which the list of entrants will be published.
The challenge aims to raise awareness of the great food scene in North East Wales, and helps boost numbers in what is a generally quieter time in the food calendar. Eateries are encouraged to enter either a ‘Fish and Chips with a twist’ dish, or a locally sourced Surf & Turf dish (with the meat being locally sourced).
The Sea Food challenge will be running between 15th January and 11th February 2018, with the dishes advertised on the restaurant’s specials boards. Dishes from all 3 counties will be judged by a panel of mystery shoppers, and the 3 highest scoring dishes invited to a cook off at the end of February.
Who doesn’t enjoy Fish and chips? Well January will be a great time to get out to a local restaurant and enjoy the classic dish served up by our regions great chefs.
