Food Culture of the Shetland Islands

Listen in pop-out player

For the first time, The Food Programme explores the food culture of the Shetland Islands. The oil that brought prosperity to Shetland is beginning to run out, but Shetland is rediscovering the quality produce on its doorstep.

In the run up to their annual Flavour of Shetland festival, Sheila Dillon samples local quality produce including seaweed lamb, black potatoes and mussels and she finds out about an experimental project in which mutton is air-dried to suit Faroese tastes.
