A dramatic tour of the city’s cuisine from past to present.A walking tour with a difference: on Belfast Bred you’ll discover the city’s fascinating culinary history in the company of Barney, a chef from RMS Titanic – and you’ll sample some great Belfast food along the way.Defrosted after 99 years frozen in an iceberg, Barney has just two and a half hours to search contemporary Belfast for the finest ingredients to recreate the famous ship’s launch menu. If successful, Barney will cook the Titanic Centenary Dinner in 2012. Written by Seth Linder, performed by Michael Lavery or Stephen Beggs and directed by Kabosh’s Paula McFetridge, Belfast Bred introduces you to the very best of local produce. You’ll also get the chance to chat with local chefs, and taste Belfast’s culinary heritage. So join Barney as he recounts the stories of the Edwardian city he knew and discover the world-class food and drink available throughout modern Belfast.This mouth-watering dramatic tour includes free samples at each location: - Gourmet delights at the century-old Sawers Deli, established 1897. - Northern Ireland’s celebrated seafood at the Mourne Seafood Bar.- Superb artisan beers at the atmospheric John Hewitt Public House. - Delicious potted chicken at the Potted Hen.- Sizzling Hot Rock Steaks and traditional Boxtys at the 300 year old McHugh’s Bar. Finish up at St. George’s Market, one of the finest food markets in the UK or Ireland, first opened when Barney was a boy!Tour times:- Departs Sawers Deli, College Street, 10.15am, finishing St. George’s Market 12.45pm. - Every Friday and Saturday from Friday 24th June 2011 to Saturday 3rd September 2011.

Enjoyed our tour, having brought our Canadian visitors with us. A well planned and professional tour, with humour and amazing interesting facts in equal measure. Just the right length of tour to suit everyone and the price is really good value.
