Bia at the Border

Dear Slow Food Galway Member

I hope you are keeping well and had an enjoyable summer. It now that time of year where we get to enjoy the fruits of Mother nature and this year they are certainly in abundance. Its so nice to see the damsons back this year after a two year lul, so i hope you take advantage and make plenty of preserves. Speaking of wild foods, our gathering at this event will be heavily focused on wild foods and various ways to preserve them, so if you do have a nice preserve made, please do bring it along on the day for our tasting table.
This year we have decided to collaborate our event with our close neighbours: Slow Food Mayo, where both sides of the border bring along a dish using their native lamb for our feast on the day. Slow Food Galway will be bringing along a dish of lamb using Connemara Hill Lamb and Slow Food Mayo will treat us to a dish using Achill Hill Lamb, hence we named this event "Bia at the border" .
Well I certainly hope you can make it on the day, places for this event usually sell out pretty fast, so please do book ASAP with Maria on 086-3637357 to secure your place.
I hope to chat soon.
Kind regards
Maria
