A quiet Friday Night

I am sitting in front of the fire and watching the draw for the world cup in South Africa (not sure what Charleze Theron is doing there) and I am not happy.....first of all, Ireland really deserved to be in the world cup this time and second, the draw is getting too complicated (just throw all the balls in one pot and draw then).

Anyhow, just a few foodie things coming up in the next 2 weeks:

  • Ballymaloe and Slow Food East Cork are celebrating Terra Madre Day with a 3 course meal in the Grain Store from 7pm this Sunday. Local producers will be introduced and talk about their food. Ballymaloe House is always worth a trip. Call Emer on 021 4646785. Live Music will be provided by The Gardeners. Tickets costs €50 per person. Hope to see you there
  • Mallow Race Course will be the location to be on Sunday 13th December. They are hosting in association with Essink a Christmas Food & Craft Fair incl a race. The event kicks off at 12pm with a race taking place at 12:30. Local produce is on offer incl. handmade decorations, Christmas Cakes & Puddings, locally made candles, flowers & wreaths, local cheeses, chutneys, pates, breads and and don't miss it
  • The annual Cork City Christmas Market is taking place again at the weekends up to Christmas in the Grand Parade in front of the Library. Bishop Lucy Park is open from 5pm onwards so take the little ones and have a great time.
