Last Sunday the 15th October the St.Joseph’s TY class took over the deli on Spencer Street for their annual Bake Sale to raise funds for their Home Ec. Dept.
The girls were busy prepping on Friday and were up early on the Sunday morning baking a dazzling array of cakes and bakes for their Sun-day sale.
Coffee walnut slices, lemon cakes, cookies, apple crumbles and brownies were just some of the cakes on offer.
As soon as we opened the doors on Sunday at 12 the girls were busy wrapping and selling their cakes. All cakes were sold out by 3pm!
Special thanks to the TY teachers and to our own baker Derek for organising ingredients and getting the girls all set up for their sale. And of course thanks to all who came along to support the students on the day.
COOKERY DEMO – The Mayo Ingredient
TWO DATES – Tuesday 13th June, 7:30 pm – OR – Wednesday 14th June, 7:30 pm
Our latest Cookery Demo draws it’s inspiration from the county’s larder. We’ll be putting recipes built on the work of wonderful local producers …buttermilk puddings from Cuinneog Dairy Farmm, a slow cooked onion focaccia style bread using Carrowholly cheese, Achill Island Sea Salted Caramel Brownies, as well as a variety of dishes incorporating ideas for breakfast, main meals and desserts.
From other local artisans like Wild Wood Vinegars, Bean West Coffee, Andarl Farm Free-Range Pork Producers, Kelly’s of Newport and much more. Each night will also feature a ‘Meet the Maker’ visit from one of our featured producers.
We are delighted to host these two cookery demos in conjunction with ‘The Gourmet Greenway’. As always, the evening includes supper, a glass of wine and notes from the demonstration. Limited tickets priced at €30 still available by calling our Delicatessen on 094 9286072.
Vegetarian cooking – Part 1
Despite it’s title, our first food demo of 2017 is not just for vegetarians but for anyone looking for inspiration to create some delicious meals focusing on vegetables as the key ingredients.
We’ll be joined on the evening by one of our favourite local producers, Michael from Velvet Cloud, who’ll be bringing some of their delicious Sheep’s milk yoghurt and Rockfield cheese from their farm near Claremorris in Co Mayo. We’ll be using the yogurt in a variety of ways, including delicious coriander yoghurt sauce and a yoghurt and raspberry cake.
Other recipes for the night include Cauliflower steaks with romesco sauce, a really delicious Vegan veggie burger, as well as salads and condiments like a veggie Kimchi.
As always, our demo night includes a light supper and glass of wine as well as a full set of notes of everything covered in the demonstration. Tickets for the evening are limited and available to purchase from our delicatessen at €30.
We’re also running a full vegetarian menu on Friday 27th January in New Antrim street – click here to see the menu . Book a table on 094 9023376
