It seems that every food event in Ireland takes place in September – and it is impossible to do them all!
There was the fantastically successful weekend in Waterford with
The National Organic Food Conference organised by Bord Bia on the Thursday, September 4th.
Slow Food Ireland‘s Terra Madre workshop day on the Friday was followed by a stupendous banquet and an impassioned speech by Carlo Petrini, the President of Slow Food International. A special post will be made shortly as soon as I have come down to earth!
Now we have tomorrow, September 13th, the Midleton Food Festival with lots of actitivities for all the family; we will be lingering around Kate O’Donovan’s stand for a while! Hot Dogs and Ummera Smoked Chicken!
Ireland’s National Organic Week begins on Monday 15th
The Taste of West Cork Festival starts on Tuesday and we will be there at the open-air Food and Craft Market on Sunday September 21st. Full details at A Taste of West Cork.
On Sunday September 28th, Slow Food’s Cork City Convivium is hosting a farm trip to Paul Johnson’s Dexter Cow Farm near Dunmanway. Click here for details
And to conclude September, a visit to Shop 2008 at the RDS.
And you expect us to smoke salmon during September!
