The Brewer, the Blogger & the Baker at the Waterford Festival of Food

It is only 2 days to our pop up at the Waterford Festival of Food: The Brewer, the Blogger & the Baker. We sold out in one day so the pressure is on!

Dungarvan, my hometown and also home to the Waterford Festival of Food

The menu is decided and the ingredients bought. We start cooking tomorrow.  Two full days of prep and cooking await us and then we take over the civic council offices for one night and cook up a storm. The cooks are local, the food (and beer) is local. We intend to do Waterford proud.

Local cheesemaker, Wolfgang, and his terrific Knockalara cheese which will be included in our menu at the pop up

The menu stays secret for now – you will have to come back to see what we had.Hope to see some of you on Saturday! If you couldn’t get tickets, Richard Corrigan is cooking at the Tannery and there is lots of other wonderful stuff happening too.

A happy discovery of lots of three cornered leek, part of the wild garlic family and perfect for our menu :)

Cooking and travelling, and sharing it all with you.


  1. Niamh, sounds like a wonderful event, nothing to beat fresh local produce for a festival of food! Sounds like you’re a bit of a “foodie” yourself!

  2. Mark Paterson says

    Sounds like it will be great fun!

    Quick question for you or any of your followers.. am about to cook your “Spag Corkese” … when making the sauce, did you crumble the black pudding or leave in larger pieces/slices. I am sure both would be fine but I am erring to crumbling as I saute it…


  3. You can always rely on the wild garlic, I added some to sea beet, at the end of cooking. Great result. Sounds like a cool festival, I off to the web site to check it out.
