'We've searched and scoured the globe to find a seafood festival that has served or is planning to serve as many dishes as the Dorset Seafood Festival and it seems there is none in existence,' said Brian Cooper, DSF committee member. 'We have made sure that all tastes are catered for this year and in doing so have produced THE most extensive seafood menu of any existing seafood festival we can find. We are therefore planning to record the event with a well known association to really celeberate its extensive culinary offering. We are blessed with some of the most abundant local waters and talented chefs and we need to tell the world about it!'
