A Taste of Lough Derg is an exciting new food trail launched this summer and continuing for July, August and September. There are a series of food events offered by artisan food producers in the area, offering food tasting, insights into local food products and inspiring summer experiences in food producing gardens.
As part of the series we will be hosting a garden walk highlighting the range (50+) of foods that can be produced in a fairly typical Irish garden, a wood turning demonstration using wood gathered in our garden and food tasting of dishes prepared from our produce.
Under the title ‘Making the most of it’ we would like to show some of the ways that anyone can produce some of their own food, on any scale. From mixed leaf salads to ‘ring of fire’ chillis an Irish garden is the source of many a family feast.
