Midleton Food & Drink Festival 2015

Yesterday it was one of these days you could call perfect. Got up early enough, dropped off Magda and went on to the
Midleton Food & Drink Festival“. Once arrived I’ve met with Ofer & Blanka and we went on to fight our way through the massive amount of food-based offers.

From fish and meat to salads and sweets, everybody will find something to be happy there. If I would go on and use words to describe everything this post won’t be finished by next week.


Instead of that I’ll just show you all the pictures from team OBM which should be sufficient.

Supplement: Macroom Food Festival 2014

I’m currently restructuring my photo library which is why this post has slipped out of my sight. We’ve been to the Macroom Food Festival and there’s been lots to see, taste and buy. Most of the exhibitors come from the region and offer a variety of local specialities and homemade delicacies.

There have been marmelades, pulled pork, baked goods, mushrooms, oils, more marmelades and pastries, beer, pickles, cheese, sausages, interesting spaghetti and of course burgers.

West Cork Garlic was also on the festival and I bought carlic gloves for planting:

I hope this year we will go to more markets like this since there’s lots to try out :)

Chipotle Bourbon Marinade

And again a new cook book bought. This time it’s about rubs, marinades, butters and what else you need for BBQs. I have done one marinade lately but there was no time for documentation. Worked great anyway.
Today I tried a second recipe which I would like to show you. I had a few leftovers in the fridge which I used as well. If that worked out well or not, I don’t know yet but I’ll see when the chicken tights are done.

What you need:

  • Half a cup Bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons chunky orange marmelade
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Garlic gloves
