Do your shopping at Perthshire On A Plate and then leave your goodies at the festival’s Food Creche for collection later.




Perth Show introduced a Food Charter supported by Quality Meat Scotland in 2016 to guarantee the quality and source of meat used at the event.
Launched by leading Chef Tom Kitchin, the Charter will mean that - where possible - suppliers to the public catering and hospitality units at the event will be required to serve only locally-produced food such as quality assured Scotch Beef PGI, Scotch Lamb PGI and Specially Selected Pork.


A range of pop-up restaurants featuring taster dishes from some of the area’s best loved eateries will allow visitors to buy and enjoy delicious local produce cooked to perfection as they relax in Perth Show’s new POAP dining area.

Celebrity chef ingredients announced for popular food festival

The popular Perthshire On A Plate food festival is turning to "Celtic Connections" as it prepares to serve up another two days of the finest Perthshire produce in partnership with Perth Show.
This year, favourite Irish chef Paul Rankin and Scotland's own Jak O'Donnell will take centre stage for a fun-filled celebration of food and drink at Perth Show on Friday and Saturday, August 3 and 4.
Hosted by Perthshire Chamber of Commerce, the two-day food festival will showcase not only celebrity chefs creating delicious dishes with local produce, but also the outstanding culinary talents of some of the district's top chefs.
Supported by Sodexo, Perth College UHI and Quality Meat Scotland, POAP will also showcase a selection of Perthshire's finest food and drink producers and feature a pop-up restaurant area where visitors can dine on sample size portions of meals created by local restaurants.
Looking forward to his appearance at the event on the Friday, Paul Rankin said he was expecting "great things" from POAP, judging by its enviable reputation.
And he stressed that his first visit to Perth would be a tribute to his Auntie Ella!
"Most folk think me as 'the Irish chef', but with a name like Rankin a lot of people know that’s probably not strictly true," he said. "I’m very proud to say that I was born in Baillieston just outside Glasgow - Mum was from Belfast and Dad grew up in Baillieston. So as you can imagine Scotland is very dear to my heart.
"I’ve seen a fair bit of Scotland between cooking events and filming with my pal Nick Nairn but I’ve never spent any time in Perth - shame on me!
"My auntie Ella who used to stay in Airdrie used to say: 'Oh Perth is lovely. I'd like to live in Perth.'  So folks, I’m expecting great things."
Paul is a great favourite with TV viewers following regular appearances on top shows such as: Ready Steady Cook; Paul and Nick's Big Food Trip, Big American Food Trip and Big Canadian Food Trip; Saturday Food Kitchen; The Rankin Challenge and Win It, Cook It.
Renowned as the chef who changed the face of culinary Northern Ireland when he opened Roscoff restaurant and won the country's first Michelin Star, Paul's affable personality makes him a favourite with Scottish audiences.
"I’ve been talking to Nick (Nick Nairn who appeared at POAP last year) and he says not only is Perth great but the Perth Show and POAP are fabulous too! I’m really looking forward to it - great produce, great folk, great craic  and hopefully new friends. And some of the cooking demos should be pretty good too!"
Topping the bill on the Saturday will be Scottish favourite Jacqueline (Jak) O'Donnell.
Acclaimed chef Jak, who is patron of The Sisters restaurants in Glasgow and regularly appears as a celebrity chef on television, said she is really looking forward to making her debut visit to Perthshire On A Plate.
“The team behind Perthshire On A Plate should be congratulated on an event which goes from strength to strength each year. It showcases the very best of local produce to the general public – who not only have a great day out but also get a better understanding of how great food is produced in the area. I can’t wait!”
