Meet our bakers at West Waterford Festival of Food and the Galway Food Festival

Details coming up soon of an event in Dublin with 3 of our bakers sharing their bread and stories. While we are waiting for that we have slots in two great food festivals in Dungarvan and Galway.

Galway Food Festival, 2nd to 6th April 2015

Joe Fitzmaurice (Riot Rye) will be weaving his magic in Galway on Saturday 4th as he demystifies sourdough. To be clear Real Bread Ireland cannot stand over any use of spells or other skullduggery in a public place so we are a bit reluctant to promote this.

That said here are the details:

2.30pm: Joe Fitzmaurice of Riot Rye Bakehouse & Bread School and the Real Bread Ireland movement presents a live interactive story of sourdough bread from raw grain, through every step of the milling, making starter, fermentation & baking. With Q&A and distribution of sourdough starter (bring a vessel!).

More on their site, its free to attend. Expect some of this..

West Waterford, 9th to 12th April 2015

On Saturday 11th Esther and Joe Barron (Barron’s Bakery) will be hosting visitors to their bakery in Cappoquin as part of the Blackwater Food tour.



You can book for that here on the West Waterford site – its only €15.

Then on the Sunday at 11.30 in Nude Food Louise Clarke is hosting a conversation and breaking of bread where Patrick Ryan (Firehouse Bakery) and Sarah Richards (Seagull Bakery) will share their thoughts on bread, sourdough and more in a celebration of good real bread. The writer of this blog post (Keith Bohanna) will also be there but a wee bit quieter than those 3 🙂



That’s it, enjoy those events if you get to them!
