Food Tours in Wexford
This Spring Gallivanting Tours will be launched our new Food and Heritage Tours. Full 8-hour tours that cross the lush Wexford countryside on an exploration of how the Celtic and Medieval past is still reflected in the foods we eat today. We will be looking at traditional favourites like The Full Irish breakfast, Soda Bread and Smoked Fish, we will explore their roots and how they have evolved and still remain in our modern world.
We will also explore the contemporary food market, the Artisan Chocolatiers, the Craft Brewers and new and emerging farmed animals like Water Buffalo and Goats and of course our world famous seafood industry.
And if thats not enough we will also be including a few of our top heritage sites, Hook Lighthouse, Kilmore Quay, Dunbrody Famine Ship and lots more.
Tours will be launched and ready to book from January but for now, enjoy a few videos showing our research to date!
Ballyminane Mill is a beautiful Watermill nestled in a small valley just outside Enniscorthy. Owned by the same family for over a hundred years and still producing stone ground flour in the same way it always has. I plan to include this site on a tour that will include a lesson on bread making
A busy couple of days saw us squeeze in among others, O’Neills Dry Cure Bacon Company. I bet you didn’t know Bacon as we know and love it was invented in Ireland! You’ll find out so much on these tours!
One of my favourite foods are chocolate, and I am delighted that both Zaeire and Bean & Goose Chocolate have agreed to host chocolate workshops in their own studios, in their own homes! Heres a sneak peek at what awaits you in Bean and Goose!
On another busy day out, we found the best smoked salmon we’d ever tasted down in Ballyhack Smokehouse and thoroughly enjoyed getting better acquainted with the Craft Beers made by the Arthurstown Brewing Company!
Thats all for now, but get in touch if you want to receive a notification when they are up and running, or just come back in January to see what’s in store!
