Waterford dates for your diary

Waterford Festival of Food – this weekend! 11 to 13 April in Dungarvan, Co Waterford. Food trails, cookery demonstrations and a Sunday farmers’ market that I’m planning on visiting. I hope they’re going to be serving those delicious soft floury white bread baps, unique to Waterford, called Blaas. No weekend away in Tramore was complete without a breakfast Blaa, stuffed with bacon and omelette…mmmm….

Terra Madre Ireland 2008 – 4 to 7 September, in Waterford City. Slow food workshops, debates, tours and tastings, all based around the theme of sustainable food production. Sign up on the website for a news letter that will keep you up-to-date with all the goings-on.

  1. Would love to be in Dungarvan this weekend, my 12 year old cousin who is big into cooking is down there so will be getting a full report from her!

  2. How did your cousin get on, Rachel? Hope she didn’t get trampled underfoot during the hog roast stampede!
