Ok, first off – in a couple of days Rye will be overrun with scallops for the Rye Bay Scallop Festival. If you love seafood, this one’s a goodie. Many of the restaurants round town lay on special scallop menus, or if you’re really into your food, look out for the cooking classes. Market Fisheries are running a scellop cutting demonstration for the cheffy ones among you.
Two years ago a journalist came to cover the festival and managed to eat about 20 scallops. If you manage to beat this record, let us know: we salute you.
The festival’s running between 20th – 28th Feb, and you can find out what’s going on at the festival website.
