FOOD LOVERS: MAKE YOUR OWN CHOPPING BOARD WITH DONNACHADHA O’CONNOR

Saturday at 14:00
Venue: Original Kerry Craftshop, Green Street
Cost: €20 per person
To Book: Ring 087 9913477

This workshop is all about boards: chopping boards, cheese or bread boards. Donnchadha is a member of the Original Kerry group and is a craft maker in wood, who produces hand cut and finished chopping boards. He will take you through the kinds of wood best suited to use in your kitchen. Why some types of wood are better than others in different circumstances? How to treat your well-loved boards to keep them in perfect condition and how to give your well used boards a makeover to bring them back to their former glory.

The high point of the workshop, though, is the opportunity for each participant to make their own, personalized hardwood chopping board. You will learn how to select your piece, how to shape, trim and finish your board and prepare it to withstand the rigours of life in your kitchen.

This promises to be a fascinating experience for people who really value the tools they work with when they cook and prepare good food.
