Gary (left) with Samuel


Gary Gubbins of Red Nose Wines has been in touch to enthusiastically fill me in on two big wine events he has coming up next month.

“Last April we had a visit from Samuel Guibert and a very momentous tasting in Hickeys Cafe in Clonmel. Ever since this tasting, I have had many people asking about a return visit. I am delighted to announce that Samuel is coming back and bringing his world famous Mas de Daumas Gassac with him. And if that’s not enough to get you all excited, then I should tell you that we are having two events.”


The first wine dinner is on Thursday evening October 20th with Samuel in fellow Tipperary Food Producers Network Inch House. Nora Egan’s Black Pudding is famous the world. Inch House is also very well known for its fine dining restaurant. This is a unique opportunity to sit down with a member of one of the iconic wine families of France and taste some of the best wines in the world. Contact Red Nose Wine on 052-6182939 or Inch House on 0504-51348 to buy tickets. Tickets are only €60 for 4 courses and a selection of wines including the Grand Cru Red & White. Places are limited.

If you can’t make Inch House, then there is a tasting the next day, Friday October 21st in one of Ireland’s iconic food destinations, Ballymaloe House. Gary: “We are co hosting the tasting with Curious Wines, our Cork friends in wine. The tasting will include a vertical tasting of the Grand Cru Mas de Daumas Gassac red, a unique opportunity to taste multiple vintages of this iconic wine. Tickets are only €15 and are available online, in the shop or also from Ballymaloe and Curious Wines.”

The seated tasting will be followed by a separate wine dinner in Ballymaloe House, at 9.00pm, where 4 courses will be served with a selection of the Daumas Gassac wines including the Mas de Daumas Gassac Red. Tickets for the wine dinner are available only from Ballymaloe House and are priced at €85, including 4 courses, tea/coffee and wine.

It's back! The return of the famous (or infamous) Mannings Emporium Food & Drink Fair, will take place on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 June. Mark it in your diary for a fun filled weekend of food and drink tastings, live music, cookery demonstrations, food quizes and much more.
Gourmet food shop, deli & cafe.

Manning's at Blarney Farmers Market
Manning's is a West Cork " food mecca with the best artisan produce in the area, wide selection of irish and continental farmhouse cheeses, a range of wines from around the world and an array of other artisan goodies!" Open daily 9am - 7pm. More info here

Nash19Cork, perhaps my favourite day-tiem restaurant in Cork also have a fantastic shop. One of the latest products here is Organic Belgooly Buttermilk from John and Mary Cronins Farm. "We used it in our pancakes"...

Ben & Jerry’s newest flavourCoconUtterly Fair has mouth-watering chocolate ice cream with a rich coconut swirl and chocolate covered caramel crunch clusters. In 2010, Ben & Jerry’s announced it would convert all of its ice cream to 100% Fairtrade, by using fully Fairtrade ingredients by year-end 2011 and the crew are right on track with CoconUtterly Fair.

Made with four Fairtrade Certified ingredients including vanilla from Madagascar, sugar from Belize and cocoa from the Dominican Republic, Coconutterly Fair is certainly the fairest of them all. On top of that, Ben & Jerry’s need for Fairtrade Certified coconut provided the first Fairtrade customer for Acopagro, a Peruvian farmer cooperative. That’s sure to leave a sweet taste in your mouth!
