Kildorrery International Food Fair

Kildorrery International Food Fair


Spotted this Facebook post from Caroline Hennessy (Bibliocook) yesterday morning and decided to head up to Kildorrery to check it out.
"Food from Latvia, Japan, Lithuania, Korea - and some samples of Irish beer from @8degreesbrewing! The Kildorrery International Food Festival at 2pm today.
Some of the delights on offer for your enjoyment at this year's Kildorrery International Food Fair on Sunday May 19th:

Bangers and Mash with Onion Gravy
Cream of Barley Soup (original Titanic recipe, goes down very well) served with Trudy’s soda bread
Chicken and vegetable stew (Japanese chikuzen style)
Dakjjim (Korean marinated chicken stew with noodles)
Latvian Pork and Bean Stew
Lithuanian Grated Potato Dumplings and Flat Potato Cake
Brisket and Poha (beef and kale)
Yam and Egg Stew
Beans and Dodo (fried Plantain)."

The Fair was held in the local schoolhouse with ample parking across the way in the GAA Grounds. There was a fiver charge for admission and for that you were supplied with a bowl and a fork/spoon and a wristband that entitled you to get into the main room and eat all you could get.

The place was packed with most of the punters willing to try out the exotic as well as the local food on offer. By the time, my round was finished, I was delighted to see a cup of tea (or coffee) on offer in an adjacent room and I enjoyed that very much along with a bun (all for just two euro).


Hard to take pics in such a crowded situation but managed a few.


Oriental touch
Matcha Green tea cakes

Delicious: Chicken and vegetable stew (Japanese chikuzen style)
Fried ribbon cookies
Brisket and Poha (beef and kale)

Not much left! The African rice was very popular
The food on the right is banana.
Local  beers with a growing international reputation!

So sorry that I missed you there, Billy - never even made it into the cup-of-tea room, too much food to negotiate beforehand! Delighted that you made it along. The lads that put it together always do a great job and I love the fact that it's a real family and community food festival. Roll on 2014!
