A Glorious Food Journey Awaits in Tryone

Something very tasty is cooking up in Tyrone and its all thanks to Northern Ireland’s first Good Food Circle.  Working alongside local tourism body Flavour of Tyrone the Good Food Circle, now in its 12th year, consistently delivers a winning recipe of  first class dining experiences, using locally sourced produce and serving unique signature dishes –  all of which is set to continue throughout 2012.

This year there’s lots more on offer as the Good Food Circle has increased its membership from 14 to 27 restaurants, many of which are family run businesses. The inspection process continues to be particularly rigorous, with members not only demonstrating how they are delivering within the guidelines but showcasing how they will raise the bar in 2012.

There’s lots of delicious, unique Flavour of Tyrone Signature dishes on offer using only the very best Tyrone produce including Fivemiletown Cheese, Cloughbane meats, Quinfresh vegetables and Cookstown Bacon – to name but a few.

Mayor of Dungannon & South Tyrone Borough Council, Cllr Kenneth Reid said

“Visitors to Tyrone are in for a glorious food experience throughout 2012.  There are lots of great new restaurants onboard, inspected to the highest levels all offering the very best in local produce. With each of them using their own creative flair to create truly memorable signature dishes this will ensure that visitors will leave the region feeling that they have received an authentic flavour of Tyrone.”

Jim Cavanagh, Chairman of Flavour of Tyrone added:

“ We are delighted to have an increased membership for 2012 which shows that our local restaurateurs not only have a commitment to offering a high quality food product for the region but understand the important role it has to play in tourism.  A Flavour of Tyrone Good Food Circle stamp of approval assures customers of an excellent dining experience and a commitment from local chefs providing high quality dishes reflecting the flavour of the region.”

The Flavour of Tyrone Good Food Circle project is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the European Sustainable Competitiveness Programme for Northern Ireland and Dungannon & South Tyrone Borough Council.
