News from the Burren Slow Food Festival

Jonathan Keane The Lodge at Ashford Castle Burren Slow Food Festival
Peter Jackson 1

The organisation of the Burren Slow Food Festival is well under way. The interest is great, from traders as well as from people planning to come to the festival.It is quite a coup to have been able to secure Jonathan Keane's participation in the festival. Jonathan is not only the executive chef of the Lodge at Ashford Castle, Cong/Co. Mayo, but also a staunch foodie, forager in the vast park around the castle, and promoter of Cong as a foodie destination.

Very much the same can be said about Executive Chef Peter Jackson from the Armada Hotel in Spanish Point, Co. Clare. Peter just loves wild food and growing what is needed for the kitchen if possible. Last year, he won the inaugural Cono Sur Chef Challenge!

We are very much looking forward to both cookery demos!
