Plan your own Orkney lunch in advance from our downloadable recipe brochure, with links to Orkney suppliers.
From 12.30 pm onwards there’s an opportunity to watch a new video by chef Sam Britten, showing how to use Orkney foraged foods to make a dish with lobster tails.
Then at 1 o’clock tune in to the Science Festival YouTube channel – it’s the second of the two links below – to hear how this year’s Molecule Hunt has gone online, from organiser Sandy Smith. St Andrews University researcher Dr Saana Isojunno describes her analysis of orca sightings from observers across Orkney and Shetland. Chef Sam Britten outlines a recipe for Orkney foraged foods (the video is the first of the two links below). Eric Walker speaks about “The Wanderers” in the night sky.
They’ll round off at 1.15 pm and join us for lunch around one of our online tables.
The online tables that follow are also free to attend but numbers are limited. To make sure of a place, book your place early using this online form. If you decide close to the time, you may be still able to get a space if you come as soon as the lunchtime livestream has finished. You can try to join direct, and the hosts will do their best to fit you in.
In this video, streaming from 12.30 pm onwards, chef Sam Britten makes a rose hip and lovage ketchup to accompany a recipe for lobster tails, taking us step by step through the process.
