Food on Drive: Wild & Slow 2016

On Thursday’s show I’d the pleasure of chatting with Evan Doyle (The Strawberry Tree Restaurant, Brooklodge & Macreddin Village) and Ed Hick (fourth generation master pork butcher) about Wild & Slow 2016 organised by Slow Food Ireland.

What is Wild & Slow?

From their own website, Wild & Slow is “a unique festival that celebrates everything that is good about Irish food: fresh, local, traditional and wild. It’s a yearlong event culminating in November 2016, when the eyes of the nation will be on Wicklow as Ireland’s 6th Wild Food Harvest Festival will once again take place in BrookLodge & Macreddin Village, County Wicklow.

Take a listen to the chats below with myself, Evan and Ed, then check out for full details.

The festival runs 12 and 13 November.
