Spookily tasty treats from butchers!


Local butchers Bert Fowlie have won a Silver Award for their Witches Cauldron Cheese & Garlic Truffles.

The awards were set up to stimulate butchers into making products with a Halloween and Bonfire Night theme. Craft butchers were challenged to get their thinking caps on and create something that would capture their customers’ imagination.

Fowlies’ trick proved to be a real treat when it came before the judges at the product evaluation event.

Hebbie Fowlie received his award on from John Gallagher of event sponsors McDonnells (Queen Street) Ltd.

John said: “It was really good to see all the scary products and lots of great product ideas came forward. I think we can look forward to seeing some real innovation in butchers shops this Halloween and Bonfire Night.”
