A trip to the award-winning Mustard Seed in Ballingarry, Co Limerick is always a gastronomic treat, and to mark International Women’s Day, the team shall be shining a light on leading female food producers with a special dinner.
Falling on Thursday 8th March, the dinner will see guests choose from a menu dotted with some of head chef Angel Pirev’s favourite ingredients. Dishes will include salmon from Birgitta Hedin Curtin’s Burren Smokehouse in Co Clare, which was famously served to the Queen of England during her visit to Ireland in 2011, and cheese from award-winning Kerry cheesemaker, Maja Binder.
Additional ingredients will be sourced from local businesses in West Limerick, including Cahills Cheese, grassfed meat from Rigney’s Farm as well as vegetables and herbs grown in the Mustard Seed garden. Last year Angel Pirev demonstrated his passion for showcasing locally sourced produce during an appearance on Neven Maguire’s Irish Food Trails on RTE One.
“We are committed to sourcing excellent quality ingredients to create our dishes,” explained the Mustard Seed proprietor John Edward Joyce. “Producers like Birgitta, Maja, Helen Cahill and Caroline Rigney are an inspiration and we admire their innovation and creativity. We are proud to include their produce on our menus.”
Celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women, the 2018 International Women’s Day campaign theme is #PressforProgress.
This special Mustard Seed dinner costs €48 per person for 5 courses including tea and coffee with petits fours. Guests wishing to spend the night in one of the recently refurbished rooms can avail of a special overnight rate of €55 B&B per person sharing.
