"Delicious Ireland" - that is the motto under which 50 artisan producers from Ireland will present their wares at Selfridges shops in England for three weeks starting on 10 April 2012. And the Burren Smokehouse will be among them - we are very excited about this!
Selfridges Food Hall will offer their customers the chance to meet dedicated producers from the length and breadth of Ireland, including bakers, cheese and butter makers, meat curers, salmon and eel smokers, to name just a few. Of course, customers will be able to purchase these delicacies on the spot.
During the three weeks, there will be a host of cookery demonstrations in the Food Hall from some of Ireland’s most influential chefs: Darina Allen of the Ballymaloe cookery school and restaurant – one of Ireland’s finest; Ross Lewis, of the Michelin-starred Dublin restaurant Chapter One (who cooked for the Queen during her recent visit to Ireland); award-winning Catherine Fulvio of County Wicklow’s Ballyknocken Cookery School; and BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen favourite, Kevin Dundon... Not forgetting, of course, the inimitable Richard Corrigan. Every day there will be something exciting to watch and something different to taste.
