Everyone has to eat and in Westmeath we are blessed with a wide range of top quality food producers and outlets offering the best in local fare.
To celebrate this wealth of goodness on our doorsteps Midlands 103 in conjunction with Buckley’s SuperValu will be hosting A Taste of Westmeath this Sunday, May 29. This event will offer visitors a smorgasboard of fine foods, beverages, and crafts. There will also be cookery demonstrations from Kevin O’Donnell of The Fatted Calf, Glasson and Gary O’Hanlon of VM restaurant at Viewmount House, Longford.
Midlands 103, Buckley’s SuperValu, and Westmeath Community Development Company hope to promote and support local food producers and purveyors of fine foods through this event. Midlands 103 project manager Chris Matthews says, “Anyone who is interested in good quality food made from the best ingredients will love A Taste of Westmeath. There will be something on offer to suit all tastes - literally. From organic meats to gluten free breads, the sweetest chocolate spreads and gourmet jams to fine wines, award-winning local restaurants, candles, and craft works.
“We have put a lot of thought and effort into this special day which we are certain will attract a large crowd. This is a wonderful opportunity to sample and support local companies. Don’t have a big lunch as you will be tempted by all the samples and treat on offer on the day!”
