Catherine Fulvio the celebrity TV chef, food writer, author and proprietor of Ballyknocken House & Cookery School brought a large audience to her cookery demonstration in the fabulous Resource Centre in Cappawhite on Saturday evening last.

The event was organised as a fundraiser for Cappawhite Ladies Football Club who have teams from under 6 all the way up to senior. The cookery demonstration was preceded by a wine and cheese reception and a display of local artisan food producers and craft makers.

The menu on the evening was: Smoked Salmon Roll Salad, Turkey Breast with Pancetta and Mushroom Stuffing with a Marsala Sauce, Apple and Ginger Cranberry Sauce, Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan, Hasselback Potatoe and Chocolate Mousse Cake.

Everyone left happy with a booklet of recipes and confident they could reproduce these dishes in their own kitchens!

Thank you to all who supported our event by buying tickets or donating spot prizes. We would particularly like to thank Tipperary Co op who sponsored our Cheese, Ryan Centra, Cappawhite, Supervalu Tipperary Town and The Ponda Rosa Bar, Annacarty for sponsoring our wine on the evening.

A special word of thanks must go to our main Sponsor; Crowe’s Farm Dundrum who are busy getting ready for the Christmas season supplying Organic Bronze Turkeys and Outdoor Reared Christmas Hams which you can order and collect or get delivered to your door at

Behind every successful local event are committed community people, so lastly but by no means least a sincere thank you to the organizing committee and those who volunteered on the night. Hope you all have a great Christmas.
