Meet the Producers & Win: The Baker, The Forager and The Whiskey Maker

October 2017: Looking for new stories in food? Any Given Food is now Ken on Food. Check the new food blog here, and follow me on Twitter @kenonfood. On Instagram? Find me here.

The third off three Meet The Producers events at this year’s Savour Kilkenny takes place on the Sunday evening and brings together a baker, forager and whiskey maker.

WIN: I’ve got one pair of tickets to give away, leave your name in the comments or on the Facebook page to go into the virtual hat, winners drawn by Sunday night.

Join three Waterford based producers in Sarah Richards of Seagull Bakery, Tom Jones (not the singer) of Sea of Vitality and Muldoon Whiskey’s Nichola Beresford at Butler House where real bread is the main ingredient of the evening, with ‘seaweeds and whiskey spicing things up nicely’.

It’s a talk, a discussion, a tasting, a sharing of stories and much more – that and they’ve all been tasked with coming up with a collaborative product, so that should prove interesting.

If you fancy going along on the Sunday evening, 6-8pm, pick up your tickets here for €10 or leave your name in the comments below as I’ve got a pair to give away before Sunday night.

About Seagull Bakery

The Seagull Bakery is a small Artisan bakery based in Tramore, Co. Waterford, Ireland. Sarah Richards a native of Tramore is the owner and sole baker of this seaside microbakery. A graduate of Crawford College of Art and Design Cork, Sarah’s initial interest in food business stemmed from a desire to finance a fledgling painting career, prompting her to train as a chef at the Ballymaloe Cookery School Cork.

About Sea Of Vitality

Tom and Ria Jones left careers in the army and bank to move to Dungarvan, Co. Waterford in 2007. Five years later, after attending a seaweed workshop with the Irish Wildlife Trust, they were on the road to setting up Sea Of Vitality, specialising in seaweed as a food additive.

About Muldoon Whiskey

If hazelnuts have mystical and mythical powers, then there may be something very special about the hazelnut and toffee influenced whiskey created by Blackwater in Waterford as Muldoon Whiskey. Theirs is a story many years in the making.
