A Taste of West Cork

Fushia branded food from West Cork If you’re down in West Cork this weekend, or can make your way there, the Taste of West Cork Food Festival started in Skibbereen last night with a dinner which featured local products like Gubeen Bacon, Union Hall Smoked Salmon, Gallan Cream Cheese, Beara Preserves and Ó Conaill Chocolates.

Other events that will take place include a field trip to Gubbeen Farm, guided by cheesemaker extraordinaire Giana Ferguson; Saturday’s Mystery Dine Out Night – you buy a ticket and are told where you’re having dinner; and the Wild and Organic lunch at Kalbo’s Bistro. And, most important of all, don’t miss talented young Irish artist Neva Elliott serving tea and cakes at the Archiving Skibbereen Studio in the West Cork Arts Centre!

For some recipes using products from West Cork – marketed under the Fuchisa Brand – get your hands on 2004 Collins Press publication, A Taste of West Cork.
