On Wednesday 8th September, Taste of Ulster restaurant Malmaison opened its doors and invited guests in to meet some of their very good friends; the people responsible for the stunning, local ingredients used to make the dishes you know and love in their brasserie.
Favourites such as Finnebrogue Venison, Kettyle Irish Foods, Hannon Meats, Walter Ewing and even Malmaison’s own breads and biscuits were sampled to over 75 visitors, along with a wide range of other products at the Farmers’ Market.
Meanwhile, Head Chef Ip Wai Cheong, and Senior Sous chef john Burns cooked up local treats on the NI Good Food trailer, creating more atmosphere and delicious aromas outside.
The free event also raised £265 for the Northern Ireland Hospice.
They dare to keep it local, and with a wealth of local food on our doorstep, so should we all!
