Sat 6 May 2017, 19:00 – 23:30 IST
The Great Irish Food Quiz ON THE FARM....will be held at Maperath Farm, Kells, Co. Meath on May 6th, 2017.
The Great Irish Food Quiz has been going for almost 10 years now and is run by Chef Áine Maguire of The Idle Wall, Westport, Co. Mayo. Mostly held in Dublin and sometimes in her native Westport, this time it's moving to Maperath Farm in Kells to be hosted by Olivia Duff of the Headfort Arms Hotel and her husband Eoin Sharkey.
Olivia & Eoin will open their turkey barn to food lovers who will enjoy an evening of trivia, tastings and tipples! Maperath Farm which features next week on ‘Big Week on the Farm’ on RTE is synonymous with Free Range Bronze Turkeys and Goose for Christmas time
Áine and Olivia are both Fáilte Ireland Food Champhions and have decided to collaborate for this event. The Boyne Valley Food Series is run by Olivia and a hardworking team of local producers. It is a calander of unique and authentic events and The Great Irish Food Quiz is delighted to be part of the wonderful 2017 event line-up.
Kevin Sheridan of Sheridans Cheesemongers will be Quiz Master on the night and some of Ireland's Food Champions will come to Kells to help out on the night with Jacinta Dalton of GMIT on registration and Patrick Ryan from the Firehouse Bakery in Delgany lighting the coals of the Wood Fired Oven on the farm…..
As with all the Food Quizzes, the objective of the night of course is to raise funds for charity. Down Syndrome Ireland is the chosen Charity and all proceeds on the night going directly to the organisation. Both Aine and Olivia are motivated personally by this organisation and there will be super raffle items on the night to include Weekends Away, lovely dinner treats and of course in fitting with the surroundings you could win your Christmas Dinner from the Maperath Farm!
