THE cream of Alderney’s local food and drink will be taking centre stage at the Island’s Food Festival again this July.
Dozens of food and drink events and offers will be served up as part of the 12-day extravaganza and Alderney’s fabulous beef, pork, seafood and creamy dairy dishes are the main event.
So what makes Alderney’s local produce so special?
You only need to drink in Alderney’s unspoiled scenery to find out.
Along the south cliffs, Kiln Farm’s pretty herd of cattle graze contentedly in sunshine on the sea cliffs, while next to the tracks leading to Alderney’s gannet colony, you see the free range rare breed pigs living the good life on the Blaye. Then there’s sweet and juicy crab and lobsters plucked fresh from the blue, clear waters of Braye Bay.
It’s easy to see why residents insist on home grown when they eat out.
