A two-day street food event takes place in Eyemouth Auld Merket space at the harbour side on Monday and Tuesday next week, from 9.30am to 3pm each day.

The Borders Healthy Living Network, part of the joint health improvement team set up byNHS Borders and Scottish Borders Council, is hosting the free event.

Its aim is to give the team the opportunity to engage with east Berwickshire residents of all ages to find out what is important to them as it seeks to foster a good food culture in Eyemouth making the most of local products and resources.

Celebrity chef Dave Hodson will provide cooking demonstrations at 9.30am, 11.30am and 1.30pm daily, demonstrating a variety of inspirational ideas intended to make best use of Eyemouth’s variety of home-grown produce.

Pupils from local primary schools will attend the live demonstrations to see first hand the appetising food that can be made from scratch using local ingredients.

They will also have the chance to try some tasty bites and guess the ingredients used, before leaving with recipes to try out at home.

Eyemouth High School pupils will work with Lanarkshire movie-maker Deep Fried Film over the two days to develop a short film about the event.

A film crew will be out and about to get ideas about how to make the most of the ingredients Eyemouth has to offer.
