ScotFood Chat 3Feb14 Orkney & Shetland

Ok, confession time… I haven’t ever ventured as far north as the Northern Isles of Scotland, so I’ve been very glad to have the assistance of Elizabeth a.k.a. @TangoRaindrop to help set the questions so that we can highlight Orkney and Shetland in this month’s #ScotFood Twitter Chat. 

Questions for 3 February 2014 #ScotFood Orkney and Shetland focus

21:00 Q1 Introduce yourself to #ScotFood: first name, first part of postcode, your company/blog and what it does.
21:10 Q2 Have you ever visited Orkney and/or Shetland? If so, what local produce did you try? #ScotFood
21:20 Q3 What Orkney and/or Shetland food or recipe would you recommend for others to try? #ScotFood
21:30 Q4 Valentine’s Day is coming. What Orkney or Shetland treats would you gift your sweetheart? Chocolates? Fudge? #ScotFood
21:40 Q5 How could food producers in Orkney and Shetland raise awareness of their products on the mainland? #ScotFood
21:50 Q6 What else would you like to share with #ScotFood about Orkney and Shetland?

So far, in preparation for the second ScotFood Twitter chat of 2014 (on 3 February at 9 – 10 pm), I’ve managed to recruit two brave hosts: Elizabeth, of Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary – who we suspect might just be Britain’s most northerly food blogger, and Russell & Naiomi Bremner who farm Water Buffalo on Orkney @OrkneyBuffalo.  I’ve also been creating a Twitter list of folks who are based in Orkney or Shetland who might be interested in helping to host the chat. There is also a Pinterest Board for Orkney and Shetland where I’ve collected links to local producers and foodies on the Crail Food Festival Pinterest site.  It’s been a fascinating process learning about what there is to entice people to visit, and it would be great to hear from people all over the world about what delights they’ve found in Orkney or Shetland.

Can you help suggest Orkney and Shetland food and drink producers, cafés, restaurants, bloggers who would like to get together to show the rest of the world what they have to offer via a chat on Twitter?  We’ve already discovered cheese, mussels, oatcakes, salmon… what more to find out about the region?

We’re looking for more hosts, and of course you to participate! Any questions, tweet @SusanMcNaughton or comment below:
