Presented by Slow Food Ireland and celebrating all that is good about Irish foods – fresh, local, traditional & wild – in a WinterFest Style Market, that will run from afternoon into crisp dark evening.
Picture yourself wandering down a frosty winter street in a rural and picturesque Irish village, your breath hanging foggily in the air, and your hands warmed by blazing wood-burning braziers and a cup of spiced, mulled wine. Imagine the feeling of a unique European Winter-Fest style market, here in Ireland. So now, visualise rows of wooden stalls lining both sides of the street, with hundreds of homemade foods on display. This is the culmination of Wild&Slow 2012, an exciting national event, which is designed to showcase and celebrate the best of wild foods that the Garden of Ireland has to offer.
In addition to the fantastic Wild Foods that will be on sale from the stallholders, there will be Wild Workshops, Tastings, Talks and Demonstrations…something to spark the interest of all.
The Wild&Slow Festival promises to be a great weekend, and if you want to really spoil yourself, why not stay a night or two? B&B is available in the BrookLodge on Saturday November 10th from €70 pps and on Sun, Nov 11th from €60 pps. There will be a unique Wild Foods Dinner on the Saturday night at a cost of €65 per person including wine, and dinner will be available on the Sunday night in either The Strawberry Tree or La Taverna Armento. Bookings can be made online at BrookLodge Reservations. If you’re interested in becoming a member of Slow Food Ireland, you can get details by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
