As a Network, we enjoy very much working with local food service businesses includings cafes, restaurants, guesthouses, hotels, and are so appreciative of the local support from these businesses. As a way of giving back to these businesses, we plan to create a variety of videos in the coming months, showcasing what local chefs and restauranteurs can create, in terms of simple cooking, using quality, local produce that is on our doorstep. This initiative is called “Tipp the Dish”. It was one of our members, James O’Donoghue from Longways Cider, now recently rebranded as Legacy Cider, who came up with the concept along with other members.
At Dooks Fine Foods in Fethard town, a wonderful café, restaurant and retailer of delicious fresh wholesome local foods, owner and head chef Richard Gleeson has created some fantastic dishes using the best of Tipperary produce. Some of these Tipperary ingredients can be found within our Taste of Tipperary Hamper. We are delighted to work with Hampers & Co, another Tipperary company who can distribute this hamper anywhere in Ireland or internationally.
