Mayor Pomfret sampled a special Jerk Hotpot which is to be served in the Preston restaurant.

Head chef Colin Scott has been working with local suppliers to perfect a range of one pot Caribbean dishes.

He said: “At Turtle Bay, we have a whole menu of delicious ‘One Pot Dishes’ – rich, slow cooked Caribbean comfort food at its absolute best.

“We thought a Lancashire version of this the perfect way to celebrate our new neighbourhood. Our new Caribbean Lancashire Hot Pot fuses influences from Barbados to Blackburn.

“With goat replacing lamb and brimming with flavours we think we’ve created the perfect blend of Northern comfort cooking and Caribbean soul food.”

Mayor Pomfret gave the dish his blessing saying: “It’s absolutely lovely.”
