James Whelan Butchers: Long Table Dinner 2011

Long Table DinnerAnother summer is here at last and with it comes the annual Tipperary Food Producers Long Table Dinner. The Long Table Dinner is a celebration of Tipperary food with all of the ingredients coming directly from producers from Co. Tipperary. This year we are delighted to announce that the Long Table Dinner will be hosted by Rockwell College in mid August. This event has been a great success in the past and this year is the 5th Long Table Dinner organized by the Tipperary Food Producers and Rockwell College will no doubt be a memorable setting.

The Tipperary Food Producers is a network of 26 passionate producers who are proud to showcase their delicious products once a year at a magical location. Last year, 4 Long Table Dinners were held at 4 different locations in Tipperary – 2 in North Tipperary (Brocka on the Water and Inch House) and 2 in South Tipperary (Chez Hanz and The Old Convent). The Long Table Dinner has also previously been held in Cahir Castle, The Apple Farm and the Clonmel Army Barricks. It is a great celebration of local food cooked to the highest standard, what more could you ask for?

Tickets for the event will be on sale in the coming weeks from James Whelan Butchers. We look forward to seeing you there and sharing a taste of Tipperary.
