How time flies, once again I find myself surprised at the disappearing days and months. I cannot believe we have seen the Summer disappear albeit with little weather to make it memorable!
So here we are once again in September, Schools are back in swing and forgotten routines well settled. This is a time of year for planning and at PoppySeed we have jumped on the planning bus with lots of zest.
Early October will see the launch of our exciting new menu, we were delighted with the reaction to last years menus and so we are touching up the new favourites and adding some exciting new bites that will tempt all taste buds. Watch out for Homemade Crab Cakes, Grilled Prawns, Braised Ham Knuckle and much more.
Our bakery and its head Chef, Paolo, are in full flight and testing out some new treats for the coming season. The divine Chocolate Fondants landed today and already are teasing with their aroma and taste, a definite hit! We’ve lots more in the pipeline, so don’t forget to have a look at the pastry displays when you pop by.
It’s also Cookery Class time and our next class will run in PoppySeed Oranmore from the 14th of October at 8pm. This 4 week programme covers all the principles of Cookery with exciting twists and the introduction of modern ingredients which add flare to everyday dining. All classes are hosted by our executive head Chef, Judy Forde and are filled with an honest passion for food, a flare for cookery and a depth of knowledge which helps even the most timids of Cooks more creative and inventive. For bookings please contact Alison at 091 795191 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Festive planning is also in full flight but we will hold off on some of the news here for the moment! Most pressing however is our next Gourmet Dinner event which will take place on Friday, 27th November at 8pm in PoppySeed Clarinbridge. This time round we are going to focus the menu of some of the most exciting additions from Irish producers. The menu is sumptuous and our wine suppliers will pick the wine to match each of the delightful courses. We are happy to take bookings at PoppySeed Clarinbridge at 091 796019 and as space is limited early booking is advised. This is an stunning evening at €50.00 per person for 5 course dinner and matching wines, a great kick off to the season!
There is quite a lot more in the works at PoppySeed across Oranmore, Clarinbridge and of course our new Galway location on Eyre Street. We will be back soon with all the news but for now enjoy September as the world around us changes colour,
