The BBC Good Food Show Scotland rolls into Glasgow on 22nd October till 24th October, 2010, giving the ultimate recognition to the evolving heritage of Scotland’s food and drink. This event ties in sweetly with the The Homecoming Legacy Years. The legacy years builds on the success of Homecoming Scotland 2009( a call to people with Scottish ancestry, as well as those who simply love Scotland, to “Come Home” in 2009). The legacy theme of this year is Food & Drink.
The legacy years (4) will culminate in another Homecoming Celebration where Scotland will invite the world to join us in celebrating the Ryder Cup and Commonwealth Games in 2014.
