Freeport Fleetwood is launching the campaign to find the forgotten recipes, dishes and foods that make up the identity of the Lancashire region. Talk to your elderly relatives, scour bookshelves for family cookery books and to think back to the dishes your mums used to make.
We're trying to encourage people to reconnect with the food of their forefathers, to protect the region’s heritage and to help people to better understand where their food comes from.
The deadline for entry is 1 December 2014. The top 30 recipes will be chosen by North West food experts and be used to create a free online resource that will be circulated throughout the region.
Freeport Fleetwood will be holding a cookery demonstration and recipe tasting of the top five dishes at the centre on Thursday 4 December from 4-8pm. Come along on the evening, taste the dishes for free and chat to our chef about your food experiences. There will also be mulled wine to keep the winter chills at bay. More details above.

John Magee, Centre Manager at Freeport Fleetwood, said: “The new Skopes store will tap into the country aristo trend by offering a range of blazers, suits and over coats in checks, tweeds, pinstripes and herringbone. The brand has stood the test of time by designing a new clothing collection every season. This new launch adds to our extensive range of luxury mens retailers including Moss and Jeff Banks.”

Total turnover is approaching £20million and the company plans to add to its robust portfolio of over 60 retail outlets, opening at least two new stores every year.
Freeport Fleetwood held their first official Best of British Day on 13th September to celebrate all things British and it certainly encouraged shoppers to flock to the centre, which recorded a 40% increase in footfall across all 45 stores on the following day and a 17% increase in sales.
The British-inspired family day saw the crowds flocking to enjoy patriotic entertainment, food and drinks and John Magee, Centre Manager at Freeport Fleetwood, said: “Our first official Best of British Day brought in new shoppers from as far as Glasgow. The success of the day impacted on the following week’s trading and saw footfall and sales steadily increase throughout the week. The event seemed to remind shoppers of the fabulous range of stores we have here at the centre, especially with all our wonderful autumnal offers, with as much as 60 percent off last the latest looks.”
Lancashire-based X-Factor 2011 finalist Jonjo Kerr, kicked off Best of British celebrations and the crowds enjoyed Made in Liverpool, the official Cavern Club band plus performances by the Scream Theatre School. Hosted by Jordan North and ex Big Brother 9 contestant Luke Marsden, from 97.4 Rock FM, who presented live from the Centre throughout the day.
The Centre was decorated with Union Jack ribbons, bunting, balloons, the iconic BBC test card and giant Fleetwood seagulls and store windows were dressed following the Britannia-theme. Plus celebrations came alive with a host of British icons including a Prince Harry look-a-like, a London Hackney Carriage photo booth, beefeaters guarding the entrance, a Pimm’s cart and of course strawberries and cream.

On the last Bank Holiday Monday at the beginning of May, McDonald's at Freeport Fleetwood set a new northern region drive-thru record - with your help!
The Harbour Village eatery went to head-to-head with McDonald’s branches across the country in an attempt to set a new National Drive Thru Record. The restaurant was aiming to serve more vehicles in one hour than any other in the country, during a double record attempt from 12pm on Monday 5 May, and to help their cause they were giving away free McChicken sandwiches to people who took part.
Adam Curnow, Business Manager at McDonald’s, said: “The restaurant normally serves 130 cars per hour at weekends so we’re going to have our work cut out during the record challenge.
"The team didn't manage to break the existing national record of 232, but they set a new record for the Northern region of 206 served in an hour. They served 183 in their second hour/attempt. The previous record stood at 148 so we're really pleased with our success!"
The outlet centre offers a wide choice of fashion, homewares, fragrances, accessories and gift ideas from designer and high street stores including Moss, M&S Outlet, Jeff Banks and GAP Outlet. There is a wealth of locations in which to refuel too – whether it’s a light bite at Costa Coffee or a laid-back lunch in the Bay Tea Rooms.
