WorldHost Food Ambassador is a recognised and accredited training programme tailored specifically for Northern Ireland’s acclaimed food and drink industry.

The course organised by Ards and North Down Borough Council in association with Tourism NI and facilitated by Judith Boyle from JB Associates was an opportunity for front-line staff to develop the skills and knowledge to power sales in your business.

Almost 60 staff in the hospitality sector attended across the three sessions taking place at Poacher's Pocket, Lisbane, The Narrows Social, Portaferry and The Salty Dog, Bangor. All three venues provided mouthwatering tasters and samples of local produce from the surrounding countryside and coasts. The chefs at each location took time to explain about the provenance and their inspiration.

Local producers Christo from City Cheese, Ballywalter visited the session at The Narrows Social with his delicious raw cheese and Paul from Still Waters, Portavogie showcased freshly caught produce at The Salty Dog.
