Glasgow Mussel Fortnight

Seafood Scotland Glasgow Mussel Fortnight 3rd - 17th October, 2001

Seafood Scotland, the promotional body for the Scottish Seafood Industry, along with three major restaurants shall be holding Glasgow’s first ever “Mussel Fortnight” between the 3rd and the 17th October.

At this time of year, mussels are in peak season for eating and their condition is at its best. In several European countries, such as Ireland, Belgium and Holland, hold large, outdoor mussel festivals to celebrate this fact.

This event of celebration is the first of its kind in Scotland, taking this concept into some of the Best Seafood Restaurants in the UK, and is a precursor for a regular annual event.

Craig Morris, of Seafood Scotland, stated “Scotland, when it comes to Seafood, Scotland is perhaps more traditionally associated with a Haddock Supper than fresh mussels in white wine sauce, but as tastes are becoming more varied, and people are looking for something a little more exciting, then a visit to one of these restaurants during the Mussel Fortnight is highly recommended."

The restaurants that are holding the promotion are The Mussel Inn, Hope St, Rogano Seafood Restaurant, 11 Exchange Place, and the Glasgow Hilton, 1 William St, Gamba, 225a West George Street and Frango, 15 John Street.

Visitors can be assured of first class service, and mussels (at a discounted rate) of the highest quality. There will also be in-restaurant cookery demonstrations for visitors, held in selected venues and times.

The promotion is also being held in conjunction with Food Fest 2001, held at the SECC between the 3rd to the 7th October. Seafood Scotland shall be exhibiting, giving out samples of different Seafood products, holding a prize draw for 5 meals for 2 persons and promoting the numerous healthy benefits of seafood in the human diet
