Date: 13/04/2012


Food and drink enthusiasts are expected to flock to the West End of Glasgow in May for a new food and drink festival. 

The Ubiquitous Chip will be celebrating Scotland’s finest food producers and expert suppliers with a programme of immersive events. From Saturday 19th to Thursday 24th, the restaurant’s six day May Feast celebrates Scotland’s larder.

The Chip, as it is affectionately known, has been a champion of local producers and specialist importers since it opened in 1971. May Feast draws upon over 40 years of experience to showcase some of their food and drink favourites.
