Tipperary Food Producers shoot for the stars at Coolbawn Quay;

Perfect Ingredients for an evening on Lough Derg – Wednesday, 19th August 2015
The Tipperary Food Producers Network is once again hosting a Long Table Dinner, set this year in the idyllic surrounds of Coolbawn Quay on the shores of Lough Derg, Co Tipperary. The banquet promises to broaden the imagination as well as the palate of food lovers from all over Ireland on Wednesday August 19th.

A charming boutique resort, bordered by forests and lush rolling green fields, Coolbawn Quay is built in the style of a traditional Irish village and has a sense of timeless tranquility but with all the comforts of contemporary life. Entertainment on the evening will be provided by singer Sharon Crosbie in her own inimitable style of haunting jazz.

Tipperary Food Producers Network Chairman Mr. Pat Whelan commented that “The Long Table Dinner is a great opportunity for us all to showcase the very best of our produce to a local and national audience. It will be a feast for all the senses – not just the taste buds.”

Over the last year Tipperary Food Producers Network members really have reached the stars having won sixteen Great Taste Awards. Often described as the food Oscars, this world-famous competition, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for specialty food and drink products. Building on this success, the Long Table Dinner will showcase the vast range of quality artisan food produced within the county. The evening will be a virtual culinary tour of Tipperary with a special menu of products sourced exclusively from the 29 members of the Tipperary Food Producers Network.

This year the Long Table Dinner is part of ‘A Taste of Lough Derg’ series of food events that are taking place around the Lakelands Lough Derg Region from June until September and more details of these events are available online at www.atasteofloughderg.ie.
