In May 2017 I teamed up with Geraldine McCann at Not Another Walled Garden to host our first Farm to Table Experience. The event combines both of our passions for cooking, gardening, growing food and enjoying seasonal, Irish produce. We are currently planning more lunch and evening events for this summer. You can receive email notification for our next event by signing up for postcards from my kitchen at the link below.
The half-day event takes place on Geraldine's home farm in Ratoath, Co. Meath. We start with a tour of the kitchen garden with tips on growing your own food. This is followed by a seasonal cookery demo in the kitchen with a glass of local sparkling wine and a delicious, healthy lunch.
"Had a lovely time yesterday at your Farm to Table event with great friends. Met some lovely people, learned loads and had the most delicious food and drinks from The Chopping Board. I've been recommending a visit to everyone I've met. It's a wonderful way to spend a few hours. You'll leave very full, happy, motivated and wanting more. Will be back for sure. Don't think about it people, book and go. Lovely experience."
"I had a great day at the farm to table event that you both hosted . A fabulous coming together of The Chopping Board and Not Another Walled Garden. I came away with a lot of gardening knowledge, and culinary skill. I have since made the salad dressing and it is fab. Next project is the bread. Thank you. Highly recommended." - Carmel
"Just spent a lovely morning/afternoon with Geraldine and Joanna. First part of the morning was spent in the garden with Geraldine who showed and gave us some great tips in growing herbs and other plants. The second part of the day was with Joanna who demonstrated and made a superb lunch. All produce was from the garden or local. A fabulous day. Very well organized, very informative and most enjoyable. I look forward to my next trip to Not Another Walled Garden. Thanks Geraldine and Joanna."
