Tourist board sees how Lancashire food works at new `Foodworks` restaurant
Lancashire and Blackpool Tourist Board directors paid a visit to Lancaster House Hotel’s new Lancashire themed restaurant The Foodworks based near Lancaster, after holding its annual general meeting and regular board meeting yesterday (Tuesday September 11).
The Foodworks opened for business last month and specialises in quality local produce including Lancashire hotpot, local cheese, Goosnargh chicken, fish from Fleetwood and Morecambe Bay shrimps. It has already won acclaim for its homemade black pudding.
Foodworks’ fun and modern design pays homage to Lancashire with tea cups for chandeliers, a wall with outlines of men in cloth caps and women wearing headscarves, photographs of old Lancaster copied from Lancaster City Museum’s collection and dark wood tables that can be laid out to resemble an old cotton mill.
Mike Wilkinson, chief executive of Lancashire and Blackpool Tourist Board said: "With the tourist board set to launch the Taste Lancashire 08 year of food and drink next month, this was a timely visit to support one of our great advocates of Lancashire produce.
"Foodworks is an exciting venture and we are sure it will be a big hit with diners keen to enjoy our tasty local food and drinks."
