Top chefs delight in local produce


Queen of cooking Darina Allen was a huge hit during the Waterford Harvest Food Festival and having picked up a copy of My Waterford Magazine, she took time


out to write to us, where she was hugely positive about local food producers.


“On a recent visit to Waterford for the Harvest Food Festival I enjoyed reading the My Waterford magazine in my hotel room.

“There’s a wealth of wonderful food produced by local farmers, fishermen and artisan producers in the Waterford area. It makes for an extra special dining experience if visitors to the city and environs can experience ‘a Taste of this Place’ and if restaurants serve their local food proudly.”


Meanwhile, one of Australia’s most recognised food and wine personalities, Lyndey Milan, was also around, filming for her new TV series, called Lyndey’s Taste of Ireland.

During filming here, Lyndey got to experience at first-hand some of the very


best that Waterford has to offer. The highlights of her trip included a visit to the House of Waterford Crystal, where she enjoyed a crystal-making demo and she also enjoyed a walking tour of the city with local guide Jack Burtchaell. She popped in for an Irish pub lunch at Geoff’s Café Bar and did some cooking at Athenaeum House Hotel. Then it was on to interview Esther Barron and Joe Prendergast at Barron’s Bakery in Cappoquin. She also met with Julia Keane at her award-winning Crinnaughtaun Juice Company near Cappoquin and cooked with Paul Flynn at the Tannery in Dungarvan.


And they weren’t alone, some of the country’s top chefs converged on the city for the festival, proving Waterford truly is becoming known for its fantastic food.
