Relish newsletter - June events

Summer events, news and recipes

Well it's all go here at Relish. Apologies for news drought, I know that people have been waiting impatiently beside their inboxes for the latest goings-on.

Queenie Roadshow - TT Week - On behalf of Tim Croft at
Island Seafare (your man for queenies and gorgeous hot smoked salmon on the island) I will be undertaking a cooking tour of the island. Armed only with a frying pan, several sharp knives and, of course, some queenies I'll be showing people ways to enjoy this wonderful, local, sustainable product. Dates include: Peel Day on Mad Sunday, the Grandstand (Monday 8th June) and Ramsey Sprint (Tuesday 9th).

Isle of Man Queenie Festival - 29th June - 4th July - I'll be doing another lap of the island with the Queenie Roadshow to build up for Marine Week. Then it's down to Port St Mary for the Manx Queenie Recipe Challenge (3rd July). I'll be hosting the competition as 2 finalists battle it out to be crowned King of the Queenies. For full details and to enter your recipe go to

Food Theatre @ Queenie Festival - 4th July - To be found down on the quay in Port St Mary. Yours truly will be hosting the day and cooking too. Also showing us how it's done will be Joan from Tanroagan Restaurant, whilst The Wine Cellar will be there to do some seafood-friendly wine matching. Other chefs to be confirmed..........maybe even some off the telly.....oooh I say celebrities!

Manx Food Fair @ Tynwald Day - 6th July - What a great weekend for foodies on the Island! To rounding off the weekend head to Tynwald for more Food Theatre featuring Ellerslie Oil, Greeba Mushrooms, Tanroagan, Island Seafare, Friends of Laxey School with their recipe book, oh plus that girl from Relish will be cooking and hosting. She gets around that girl!
