Drawing it’s inspiration from our county’s larder, we’re running two cookery demos over the month of June entitles ‘The Mayo Ingredient’.
Both demos will include recipes featuring wonderful local produce from the likes of Velvet Cloud (yogurt and cheese), Achill Sea Salt, Gerry Hasset’s smoked fish, Kelly’s puddings, vegetables from Glasraí, eggs from Claremorris and much more.
At the first of the demos on Wednesday June 5th, we’ll be visited by Breda from Cuinneog Dairy and making some fruit soda bread, ice cream and a salad dressing using their wonderful buttermilk.
At our demo on Tuesday 18th, we will be joined by Fiontann from Wildwood Vinegars, and very much look forward to sampling some of his amazing bottled wild flavours.
This latter demo is a fundraiser for the ‘Mayo Street Food Festival’, a wonderful one day event and gathering of local restaurants and producers to be held this year at Bridge Lane, Castlebar on Sunday, September 8th. In the lead up to the big day, the county town’s leading food and drink ambassadors are teaming up to host a series of exciting food events to raise much-needed funds for the festival. Events on the food series calendar between now and September will include this food demo but also foraging, a wine evening, food quiz, comedy bingo, and more yet to be announced. If you or your company would like to get involved and support the Mayo food scene by becoming a festival or event sponsor, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
