Do you have a garden that produces too much food for your family to eat? (That’s a great problem to have!) Do you crave a pickle you discovered on your travels but can’t find at home? Are you intrigued by the potential health benefits of fermented foods? Or maybe you just like to experiment in the kitchen? Chef, food writer and Slow Food Dublin-member Rozanne Stevens is giving a masterclass on pickles, preserves and fermented foods in March and has generously offered members of Slow Food a significant discount. For only €40 (a 60% discount off the normal price of €100!) you will learn traditional fermented recipes like sauerkraut and kefir so that you can enjoy these super foods at home. Pickled fennel with star anise, kimchi, Sriracha pickles, quince jelly and spicy chutneys are just some of the many recipes covered. The class includes a full recipe folder, lunch and some preserves to bring home. Be sure to bring along some jars!

This offer is open to the members of any Slow Food Convivium but the number of places and time to sign-up  is limited so secure your place today. If you are not already a member of Slow Food you may join here or on the day. If you are under 35 the yearly fee is a mere €12. For people 35 and older a regular membership is €50 per year and a couple’s membership is only €65, so a couple attending can still save €55!

Update: Sorry, the discounted offer has ended. You can still book at the normal price here.
Update 2: Sorry, the class has been cancelled.

Date: 15 December, 2:30pm
Location: The Brooklodge, Macreddin Village, Aughrim, Wicklow

As part of the world-wide Terra Madre Day celebrations happening in December the Sugar Loaf  convivium is hosting a handmade gift exchange. Bring along a home-made food gift (e.g. chutney, sauces, sweets, biscuits, chocolate, fruity sweetmeats, etc) with the recipe, taste others, check their recipe and then give, swap or barter your offerings. There will also be demonstrations of ideas for food gifts.

Escape the madding crowd and spend a few hours enjoyment with The Sugar Loaf convivium in  Macreddin.

A simple fee of €5 covers all and children are free!

Please RSVP to Biddy White Lennon at biddywhitelennon -at- gmail.com if you’d like to attend.
