This is a lovely email that we just received from Giana & Tom Ferguson in Gubbeen. We are using their nitrate-free bacon in our new beef stew. Giana and her family are amazing pioneers of good food in Ireland and are a wonderful family (check out www.gubbeen.com)
Our congratulations to you all - we had it last night it is fabulous, all things in the right place - enough gravy for a West COrk farmer's extra spuds and the smell when you are heating it fills the room with home cooking. We are so thrilled and honoured to be a part of it - thank you very much for bringing us into your creativity - being on the side of a beef stew packet is every girls dream - I love it and was hugely touched to be on the honour role!
If we can do anything to support your work with this let us know? Little French student Elodie who did the 100 kg of lardons has gone down in Gubbeen History - she is so pleased to see the reality now too... Very warmest to you all!
Love, Tom & Giana x
