The Slow Food West Cork Annual Summer Picnic at Lough Hyne is on Sunday August 30th

A revival of the Somerville and Ross tradition of climbing up the hill overlooking Lough Hyne and enjoying a scrumptious picnic while gazing at the spectacular view!

Last year the rain prevented the climb, but we are assured that the skies will have stopped crying by the end of the month and this year we will enjoy the walk and the view.

The packed picnics this year are being prepared by Susan Fehily of the River Lane Cafe in Ballineen and full details and order form can be found on the West Cork page of the SlowFoodIreland website. Orders MUST be in by Wednesday August 26th/

We look forward to seeing you there!

It’s really starting to feel like summer, this just in from Slow Food Cork City:

Hi all,
There are still some places left for the next event of Slow Food Cork City on Saturday 20th June, 11:30. This time, we are visiting Ultan Walsh at his organic vegetable farm followed by a picnic.

Ultan is well known in Cork as the main supplier for Cafe Paradiso and Jacobs on the Mall. He is such a good cook that some of his recipes appear in the latest cookbook of Denis Cotter – so we will be in for a treat.

If you are interested in joining, please contact Caz on ccslowfood@gmail.com to secure your space.

Hope to see you all on Saturday.

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.
