(The Cockle Gatherers – Sophie,Siobhan & Hector)
On Saturday Evening for those that missed it we had a Selection of old Adverts “Meals on Reels” from Scottish Screen Archive and a very interesting talk about Food in the Highlands from Iona MacDonald. Thanks to the Catherine & Norman Gillies from Waternish we had an array of dishes from the Highlands including stapag,slaman,cranachan,dulse soup, crowdie and oatcakes and carragheen pudding. Catherine and Norman were on the shore on Friday collecting the Dulse.
We had Whelks Freda Macleod and Cockles from Duncan,Hector,Siobhan & Sophie. Marina made some of Elizabeth Campbell (Dunvegan) Recipe for Fruit Cake and Bonnachs and Morag MacDonald (Dunvegan) made a clootie dumpling.
Thanks to Anne & Alison from the Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre and Jamie form Am Baile for loaning us the old photos.
A Huge Thanks to everyone who contributed to the evening!
