I’ve already posted some photos from the Meet The Makers / Real Bread Ireland night in Kilkenny on Saturday, but here comes the video. It’s a locked off camera so don’t expect Hollywood, but if you missed out on the event you can watch and listen back to the conversation between all involved on the night.

The first part of the night (below) included Josephine Plettenberg (Speltbakers), Joe Fitzmaurce (Riot Rye) and Declan Ryan (Arbutus Bread) looking back at the past 12 months of their business and changes that have happened along the road (all three were the first guests in January 2014).

The second part of the night (below) was given over to the launch of Real Bread Ireland and also brought Patrick Ryan (Firehouse Bakery), Kemal Scarpello (Slow Food Co) and Thibault Peigne (Tartine) to the stage.
