Breakfast Workshop – November 2009

Recent research tells us that the meal visitors to Scotland complain most about is breakfast. The breakfast experience is vitally important for individual tourism businesses – it may be the only meal taken by your guests and it will usually be a visitor’s last impression of your business.

This workshop will give you an informal but informative look at how this apparently simple meal can be transformed into a great visitor experience, catering to all dietary needs and providing a true taste of Scotland’s good food.

This practical food workshop will include:

Professional demonstrations and tastings of imaginative breakfast dishes

  • Ideas for improving your existing breakfast menu
  • Advice on costs and profits
  • Details of local Fife food suppliers and an opportunity to meet them

Feedback from the Breakfast Workshop in November 2008 was very positive –

“Thank you for a very informative morning.  I am going away with many new ideas.” – Ann Verner, Hawthorne House B&B

Note: this workshop is a repeat of the popular ‘Food Tourism’ breakfast workshop run in November 2008.  If you attended last year, please give other people a chance to benefit this year.
