Following on from the success of ‘Restaurant Week’ in previous years, Taste Causeway is now evolving into a bigger celebration of the local foodie offering. Restaurants, cafes, producers and tourism providers are all coming together to do fabulous, foodie things. Just think sea food chowder bursting with locally caught fish, grass fed beef steak, floury, tasty potatoes, locally grown and cured meats, bursting with flavour vegetables, breads, cakes and patisserie to die for and, of course, a wee glass of something from local brewers and distillers to wash it down.
