Event called off after council concern
Glasgow food fest binned over ‘space issues’
The city’s foodies were promised a treat as the centre’s globally diverse range of restaurants served up their produce on Buchanan Street.
But it is understood ‘space issues’ involving the city council have caused the organisers to call off the event planned for this weekend. There are hopes it can be re-arranged for later in the year.
The festival intend to include dishes such as Caribbean rotis, Italian antipasti, Spanish tapas, Mediterranean vegetables, Scottish Cullen Skink and miniature sized American classics including traditional hot dogs and New Orleans jambalaya.
A bespoke ‘pop up’ beer garden would have allowed guests to sample a range of craft beers.
Restaurants that signed up included Sugar Dumplin, NY American Grill, Barca, Zizzi, Darcy’s, Azur Bistro, Cranachan and October.
