The tone of our evening last Thursday (September 24th 2009) night was one of sharing. Sharing knowledge about great wines, sharing talent with great culinary skills, and sharing food.Marcus Wright from Lawson's Dry Hills Winery in New Zealand, on a whirlwind 'Euro tour' stopped over for a night in Galway to break bread with fellow food and wine lovers and to help educate our palates on his fine creations. Although it was a 'school night' the attendance neared twenty people and what a night it was!
A special word of thanks goes to Kate O'Dwyer who grew a lot of what we ate and really needs to be dubbed Ms. Local in our opinion, also to Cáit Curran who donated a lot of the produce and Cobie for the wonderful smoked eel, and of course to Ron & Móna Wise who opened up their home (and pizza oven) for this event. To all others that participated and brought food, printed flyer's, took the photos etc. Go Raibh Mile Mile Maith Agat!
