Farm and dairy producers
honoured for their quality...
The recipients of the Euro-Toques Food Awards 2014 – at a gala lunch at The Residence Club in Dublin yesterday – included two of Macreddin's very own suppliers, Ed Hick of J Hick & Sons for their smoked wild venison and Mick Healy of Wild Irish Game Ltd in Co. Wicklow. Also awarded were Cork dairy farmers Toby Simmonds and Johnny Lynch for their traditional mozzarella cheese, Lucy Deegan and Mark Cribben of Ballyhoura Mountain Mushrooms in Co Cork for their specialty mushrooms and Marjorie and Kieran O'Malley of Achill Island Sea Salt.
They were selected by 160 of Ireland's top chefs for what they called "rare gems in the Irish culinary scene".
Massive congratulations to all winners!
