“Welcome to my Home”
My kitchen may not be the tidiest or the fanciest, but it is certainly lived in and loved. My boys and I spend most of our time in the kitchen and I would love to welcome you to join me there.
We’ll feast on homemade bakes and treats. Then I’ll help you get stuck in, get your apron on, get flour on your hands. Relax as the aroma of your freshly-griddled bread fills the kitchen. More tea, coffee and homemade jams top off your visit.
Join me on a Traditional Irish Bread making experience set in my kitchen on the shores of Strangford Lough in County Down, just 30 minutes from Belfast. We start our session with a traditional Irish Fruit Soda Cake. This is a sweet treat and delicious with lots of homemade Irish butter. While the Fruit Soda Cake is baking in the stove oven, we will make some potato bread or fadge as we call it.
You will start with local brew tea or coffee in fine bone china tea cups. The table will be set with an impressive selection of homemade buttermilk soda fruit bannock, soda and wheaten breads with my jams and award-winning hand rolled butters among other tasty treats. It’s a feast for the eyes! Get stuck in!
A traditional Bread making morning / afternoon in my cosy Farmhouse kitchen is the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion or host a private party. For groups of more than 7 you can choose the date and time that suits you and we will tailor the experience to your requirements whether it’s for a Hen or a special birthday.
Tour Group Experiences
Experiences for groups in my Farmhouse kitchen range from Traditional Breadmaking with morning coffee or afternoon tea and Breadmaking with Lunch. Guests will be welcomed to my home with a delicious display of homemade sweet treats and freshly made breads. We will invite some of the group to help make soda bread which they will take home with them.
