      Won’t make it down myself with everything else on in Kilkenny this weekend but no doubt with the support in Cork it will be a solid event.

    The bullet point about the Sugar Moon Vegan Cakes is confusing. Why would vegan be eating cupcakes with cream cheese icing?

      Is there a cream cheese icing with them?

        Yes ken,Exactly the same as my odds then. How was the tapas party, anything nice on the menu.

        • http://kenmc.com Ken McGuire

          Went quite well thanks. Chorizo cooked in red wine, chicken wings, roast med veg, bombay potatoes, sag aloo, Donal Skehan’s Asian pork lettuce cups, chicken skewers in soy and lime, various breads, cheese and cold meats, a veg stew and a rice dish with fried bacon, broccoli, peppers and pine nuts. That’s the bulk of the menu. A few desserts then, carrot cake cupcakes, brownies, peanut butter and chocolate cookies… was a pretty solid feast in fairness :)

          • Alan james

            Ken,I was just thinking of what you could have made with the left overs of your tapas party, jambalaya,samosas,panzanella,soup and a fried rice dish. What do you think,

    Hi Everyone – Sugar Moon make a vegan cream cheese I should have written it “cream cheese”!

    They point is crossed out as they were unable to attend, but featured on the original press release.

    We had a ball and hope to make it even bigger next year!

    Thanks for the support, Dee
