When we kicked off Real Bread Ireland in January this year (2015) in Highbank Organic Orchards in Kilkenny we were 6 bakers and 2 supporters with a shared vision of how things could and would be better.
We are at 42 members now with a hell of a lot of support and good wishes from all across Ireland and that deserves a small celebration :-)
So on Wednesday 2nd in Dublin we are having an open house in The Bernard Shaw on 11 Richmond Street South, Dublin sponsored by Bretzel Bakery who are also celebrating the 15 year of William Bretzel’s custodianship of the bakery.
There will be a supply of real breads from bakers around Ireland and a chance to listen to a chat on where Real Bread is at in Ireland and UK with a discussion being run by William from Bretzel:
- Andrew Whitley, founder Real Bread Campaign in UK
- JP McManus, owner of Aniar Galway and founder of Food On The Edge, RBI member
- Seamus Sheridan, Sheridan Cheesemongers
- Katy McGuinness, Journalist
- and me
The perspectives will be interesting.
Especially great to have Andrew Whitley with us. He founded Village Bakery in 1976 and the Real Bread Campaign 7 years ago. He has written a number of books on baking and for bakers alone is a true legend!
