Congrats to chef Bryan McCarthy and to all at Springfort Hall who staged a magnicient event, the third in the series of #MunsterFoodieTweetup. The nine course foodie event was epic, thanks largely to the skill of Bryan and his team in the kitchen. The beef and the black pudding were perhaps the highlights but all dishes were excellent. Some excellent wines also from the James Nicholson portfolio and I really enjoyed the Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc and the Domaine du Grapillon d'Or Gigondas, not neglecting the Beaujolais nor indeed the Muscat (pictured). Great too to see the produce of local producers being put to such good use by Bryan. It was a long night in the popular north Cork venue but no tales to tell. What happened in the Baltydaniel Bar stays in the Baltydaniel Bar!
