Planning your GOURMET CHRISTMAS SNACKS? Win a hamper of delicious, award-winning biscuits and dark chocolate apple crisps from THE LISMORE FOOD COMPANY just in time for the festive period …
With an artisan craft and family tradition of baking almost two hundred years old, Beth-Ann Smith and brothers Owen and Ken Madden’s The Lismore Food Company are purveyors of a range of fine sweet and savoury biscuits. Their strong food heritage and a history of using the highest quality ingredients deliver handmade biscuits with a distinct flavour and taste.
The Company brings together three artisans who share a love of fine ingredients and a lifetime of experience in food. Beth-Ann Smith’s family history in food stretches back to Smith’s Stores, a fine food delicatessen and bakery on Cork’s Patrick Street. Having trained at Ballymaloe Cookery School she is now head chef at Lismore Castle. Brothers Owen and Ken Madden’s family opened a bakery and public house on Lismore’s Main Street in the early 1800’s. Now called ‘The Summerhouse’ and home to The Lismore Food Company, they continue this rich tradition in the same historic location.
The range of fine biscuits is comprised of seven delicious flavours encased in beautiful packaging. The range reflects the ethos of creating premium luxury Irish food products while showcasing some of Ireland’s finest ingredients. As well as a traditional All Butter Irish Shortbread, other sweet flavours offer a distinctive twist such as the use of fragrant green cardamom with dark chocolate, golden polenta with lemon, and cacao nibs with ginger. The savoury flavours reflect ‘Ireland as an island’ and the use of Wild Atlantic sea salt from Achill Island and seaweed from County Clare.
The gorgeous packaging features various facts about the town of Lismore and its surroundings while the roofs of Lismore Castle and the town’s St. Carthage’s Cathedral show on the barcode.
We’d love to offer three lucky readers a chance to win one of Lismore’s delicious hampers, with five ways to enter below …
