Foodie heaven on trailKilkenny

leave a comment »

Kilkenny trail launched Monday 19 April

Just back from the launch of trailKilkenny (www.trailkilkenny.ie). There are lots of wonderful food producers in Ireland and many of these are in the Kilkenny area. The Kilkenny food producers have joined forces to create this trail of food producers that you can visit. They include Mag Kirwan of Goatsbridge Trout Farm (www.goatsbridgetrout.ie) who supplies the wonderful hot smoked trout that I serve at SupperClubDublin.

I tasted some really delicious cheese from Knockdrinna Farmhouse Cheese (www.knockdrinna.com) – so nice I sought out another piece from one of the trays circulating. I also tasted some mouth-watering truffles from The Truffle Fairy (www.trufflefairy.com).

Highbank Organic Orchards supplied some of their organic apple juice made from specially selected apples naturally low in sugar. I thought this might taste unpleasantly bitter, but in fact it was really juicy and didn’t taste acidic, just really appley (www.highbankorchards.com)

Strawberry ice-cream was served in mini-cones and reminded me of the ice-cream my mother used to make every year during strawberry season – deeelicious (www.cramersgrove.com).

I also had a fascinating conversation with Bill Mosse of Kells Wholemeal who supply all types of wholemeal made from Irish grown wheat, www.kellswholemeal.ie

Well done Kilkenny food trailers and thanks for inviting me!
