Adam Franklin’s announced as official caterer for the LIMF 2014
Liverpool-based catering firm, Yacht Club Outside is hitting the culinary high notes this month, having been announced as the official caterer for the Liverpool International Music Festival 2014 (LIMF 2014).
This is the second event for the company in its guise as a Culture Liverpool ‘Friend of Culture’, having successfully provided the catering for two exclusive events as part of the giant spectacular: Memories of August 1914 which took place last month.
The company, which is headed by locally renowned chef, Adam Franklin, will be providing catering for LIMF 2014.
Adam Franklin, chef proprietor of Yacht Club Outside, said:
“We have really enjoyed being a Friend of Culture this summer, and catering for Memories of August 1914 will go down in history as one of the most exciting events we have ever been a part of.
“A few weeks on and we’re back, bringing our own distinctive brand of unashamed comfort food to launch another key event in the City’s calendar.
“There are some brilliant artists performing and we are really looking forward to using only the finest, locally sourced produce to create mouthwatering nibbles for the party goers such as Adam’s handmade sausage rolls, scouse pasties and smoked salmon croque monsieur, or honey mustard glazed chipolata sausages; all food that is fun to eat in the park at this kind of event.”
Lesley Beattie, head of commercial and visitor economy at Liverpool City Council, said:
“It is wonderful to be working with Adam again and to have his support in launching another major event in the City.
“Much like the artists performing at the festival, Adam and his team are passionate about what they do and are highly creative, so they are the perfect partners for this event.
“Adam is also keen to use local suppliers wherever possible, as well as giving young people a chance to work within the team so they can develop their skills and experience, which is very important to the city council.”
