For food lovers there are two Slow Food events in West Cork this Sunday. The annual Slow Food Picnic is on at Lough Hyne near Skibbereen and in Bantry the local convivium have orgaised an event at Bantry House. It may be too late to book the picnic at this stage as I understand that picnic baskets had to be booked by yesterday (see previous post for details). So if you missed that then why not head along to Bantry House. The event runs from 11am to 4pm and should dovetail nicely for anyone attending the final Masters of Tradition concert at Bantry House at 4pm (see www.westcorkmusic for details). There will be a hogroast, food stalls, demonstrations and Alannah Hopkin will be there signing her new book, Eating the Scenery. Call 027/50047 for more details.
