Pigtown Food Series launched

Pigtown Food Series launched

(Pictured above at the launch are L-R: John Relihan, Georgina Campbell, Tom Flavin and Shane Raftery at the launch of the Pigtown Culture and Food Series held at the Milk Market, Limerick)

Details have just been announced at a Butcher’s Table Supper, held at Limerick’s famous Milk Market on Monday evening May 29, of the ‘Pigtown Food Series’.

Developed by the Limerick Food Group and supported by Fáilte Ireland, the series will focus on Limerick’s unique heritage as a way to showcase the great food available locally, building on their deep-rooted food heritage.

The series was announced at a Butcher’s Table Supper held at Limerick’s famous Milk Market to celebrate the launch.

The menu by Chef Tom Flavin included produce from Rigney’s Farm with rarebreed pork sausage and pressed head to toe terrine, The Green Apron Larder range of chutneys, mustard, pickle, and more, Ballyagran Salads, Cahill’s vintage cheddar, Old Creamery smoked cheddar, and The Little Milk Co brie. Accompanied by craft beverages from Treaty City Brewing.

John Mulcahy, Fáilte Ireland’s Head of Food Tourism commented:

“I am delighted to welcome this great initiative for Limerick as the Pigtown Culture and Food Series is very much rooted in the city’s food history and will (literally) add an authentic flavour to the visitor experience. Food and local authenticity are an essential part of the overall visitor experience to Ireland. Indeed, good local food can impact destination choice, so it’s important that when visitors arrive they receive a quality food experience that is representative of the area throughout their stay. With visitors to Ireland spending some €2billion on food every year, it is our job in the tourism industry to ensure we put our best ingredients and flavours on the plate when it comes to giving visitors the experiences they want and Limerick will surely deliver this through this initiative.”

The Pigtown Food Series takes place in September and October 2017 across Limerick. For further details keep an eye on updates at www.pigtown.ie or search #PigtownLimerick or ‘Pigtown Food Series’ on social media.
