Seomra Bia Blog: cooking Tipperary food

March 25, 2011 in IFBA Events, Irish Food Festivals

Tipperary Food ProducersWould you be interested in doing a cookery demonstration for a roomful of fellow food lovers? Tipperary Food Producers are planning a Totally Tipperary food festival for Cloughjordan over the last weekend of June (25/26). As part of this, Seomra Blog Bia will take place – and that’s where you come in.

Firstly, you have to come up with a recipe using Tipperary produce and blog about it. If you were with us at Inishfood in Donegal you may already have come across Crowes’ FarmJames Whelan Butchers and Red Nose Wine and there are plenty of other examples on the Tipperary Food Producers list here.

Bloggers will get the opportunity to demonstrate their recipe at Seomra Blog Bia, which will take place on the historic grounds of the Sarah Baker Cookery School in the 400-year-old Cloughjordan House, complete with eight acres of walled gardens.

Seomra Blog Bia is based on the very successful Salon du Blog Culinaire in France – to take a look at what they were up to in November, check out Donal Skehan’s report: Salon Du Blog: Je t’adore!

This event is still very much a work in progress and we’re trying to find out who would be interested in taking part. If you are, please do let us know by leaving a comment on the bottom of this page.

According to Pat Whelan, the organisers hope to have cooking happening over most of the day with plenty of interaction between public and bloggers alike. They will have tents that will focus on individual areas of food production, including milk, coffee and wine. The Tipperary Food Producers will be showcasing their wares and a number of different groups, including GIY Ireland, will also be participating.

More information on the festival is now online here.
