  • You will be joined by experts such as well-known food historian and commentator Máirtín Mac Con Iomaire, local forager Claire Thompson, and celebrity chefs Brian McDermott & Paula McIntyre.
  • You'll finish with a discussion & celebration of the future of food culture in NI, with Celeste from Belfast's Coffee ex Cactus & Ciara from Ballycastle's Ursa Minor Bakehouse.
  • Through our private online Slack community, you will have the opportunity to share and discuss recipes with others from the group.
  • Your stories, memories, experiences and recipes will be brought together into a new online resource to share with your friends and family.
