There are few campaigns which have captured my imagination like the joint project between the much-loved Booths supermarkets and Slow Food UK. Booths are affectionately called (quite rightly) the local food store, with their 160-year heritage of retailing local and regional foods. Slow Food UK is part of the global movement, Slow Food, a movement celebrating heritage, cultural and artisan foods and food production.
Forgotten British foods are those foods loved by food writers and chefs as they uphold their belief that British Food rivals any in the world (I include myself in this). However, just because we foodies love them, without the support of the buying public, they will soon disappear. Which is precisely why both Slow Food UK and Booths are now working closely together to bring these forgotten foods back into the awareness of the British public.
Check out some of the foods they are working with, the list makes me hungry just thinking about it. There's Morecambe Bay Shrimps, Herdwick Lamb, Manx Kippers and whole bunch more.
