Even though we're all still practising social distancing and most of us are working from home, we still want to help support Irish food and drink producers.
We've decided to help our readers #ShopForIreland so we'll be posting every day to highlight producers around Ireland. Get in touch on our social channels with your suggestions on who we should write about.
Avoca barbecue hampers
This weekend is set to be a scorcher and, just in time for barbecue weather, AVOCA has launched a barbecue food hamper in collaboration with Weber Barbecues. Priced at €49.95, it’s full of essentials from free-range, organic and artisan Irish farmers, including sirloin burgers, Avoca butcher sausages, Wild Chicken Wings, bbq rubs and blaas. Each hamper will feed eight people and they're available for a limited time from Avoca Butchers at Avoca Mount Usher, Ballsbridge, Dunboyne and Monkstown.
Camden Bites & Brews
If you’re missing your chicken wing fix, Camden Bites & Brews on Dublin’s Camden Street can sort you out. It’s offering a takeaway menu that includes its very popular wings. Grab a large portion of ready-to-go wings for €12 or a cook-at-home kit (€20) with enough wings for two people as well as sauce, garlic mayo, celery sticks, rub and surprise sweets. Collection and delivery (within a 5k radius) are available Thursday to Sunday. There’s also a selection of wines and beers available too. Check out www.wearecamden.ie for all the info.
