Peckham’s entertain Ayrshire Food Network
and guests at Prestwick Airport

Ayrshire, Scotland, 14 October 2007--Peckham’s Deli Cafe at Glasgow Prestwick Airport held an informal reception last week for members of the Ayrshire Food Network and their Italian guests.

In 2004 and 2006 the Ayrshire Food Network visited Terra Madre in Turin, an international event aimed at exchanging ideas between people in the food sector.

However this time it was the AFN’s turn to host Tino Montagnesi, president of Slow Food in Bergamo, and his wife Silvia.

The couple spent a weekend in Scotland as guests of the AFN, and Peckham’s made sure they would not go hungry on Tuesday’s flight home. They laid on a spread made up of local produce including haggis oatcakes and Arran Cheddar cheese and some liquid refreshment.

Ayrshire Food Network chairman Howard Wilkinson said: “This type of exchange visit is very important as there are huge opportunities for import and export, as well as cultural and tourism links between Ayrshire and the Bergamo area.”

Also at the reception were Prestwick Airport chief executive Mark Rodwell and Peckham’s manager Chris Pendrill.

Peckham’s is highly successful and well respected licensed delicatessen and restaurant group, widely recognised as the best of its kind in Scotland. The expansion of its branch at Prestwick Airport is now complete. The new Deli Cafe serves tasty treats, coffees, hot meals and bespoke sandwiches in the main airport terminal building from 5am till 10pm.
