An Appreciation of Food & Drink

Taste The Island!

Step into Tracey’s 18th century thatched barn on the spectacular shores of Strangford Lough to experience a day of authentic Irish baking and food tasting. Feel a real connection with our charming farmhouse, hear about local history and receive new cultural experiences! The farmhouse is as beautiful inside as are the stunning landscapes that surround it outside.

Upon arrival, you’ll receive tea and coffee, as well as a warm Irish welcome from your host. Then, get ready to start baking as you’re shown how to make a delicious delicacy known as Irish Fruit Soda Cake. With that in the oven, prepare for a taste of heritage as you learn how to make staple Irish history food items; Potato and Soda bread. These delectable goods will be enjoyed with other locally sourced foods such as handmade butter, dulse butters, jams and your choice of tea or coffee.

Tracy, thank you for welcoming my friends I into your home on Friday. This was an experience l was not really looking forward to, having very little interest in cooking and food preparation. However, it wasn’t long before Your welcoming, enthusiastic and informative style converted me. WOW! I did it. I made my first bread.  A massive thank you for looking after us all day. Xx
Please thank all the other local producers for making a “day of doubt” into an amazing day.
All the best for the future.
