We started off our day on Rathlin Island foraging kelp with the Islander Kelp team. We were shown the different kelp products including noodle cut, tagliatelle cut, salad cut, minced and whole leaf kelp and got to sample each type of kelp.
We then moved on to Broughgammon Farm in Ballycastle were we sampled some delicious goat meat tacos. We met the animals and heard the background stories of them all. Broughgammon Farm have their own artisan on-site butchery, they run seasonal cookery classes and have a little farm shop selling excellent of Northern Irish and Irish produce.
For dinner we headed to Ocho Tapas Bistro in Portrush and were hosted by Trudy and Sean Brolly. We had some delicious seafood paella and sampled Broighter Gold’s new rapeseed oil flavours, as well as Corndale Farms new chorizo products and Lacadas new beers.
For the last stop of the journey, we went to Morelli’s in Portrush where we sampled some of their amazing new flavours introduced for summer.
