The Burren Ecotourism Network has announced the programme for the third annual Burren Food Fayre in Lisdoonvarna on Sunday, October 26th.
This year’s Fayre, which is supported by the Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark, features a comprehensive programme of food demonstrations and talks, hosted by food writers, producers, nutritionists and restaurants from throughout the Burren and further afield.
There are also workshops, walks and food stall displays with tastings to cater for the estimated 1500 people expected to pass through The Pavilion on the day.
This year’s Fayre is also inviting budding chefs to create a dish comprising home-grown ingredients and wild and foraged foods from around the Burren. The judging panel for the Burren Masterchef Cookery Competition, which features two categories for adults and secondary school students, includes Willie McCurdy (Belfast Chef and UK Masterchef regional finalist), Valerie O’Connor (Cook and Food Writer, Photographer and Author of ‘Bread on the Table’) and Chef John Sheedy (Sheedy’s Hotel, Lisdoonvarna).
The 2014 Burren Food Fayre takes place from 12.30pm to 5.00pm on Sunday, October 26th. Visit www.burren.ie for more information.
