Lucy Deegan & Mark Cribbin of Ballyhoura Mushrooms
Author: Georgina Campbell
Very much with the zeitgeist for wild and foraged foods, Lucy Deegan and Mark Cribbin's enterprising north Cork company grows a unique range of speciality mushrooms - comprising everything from shiitake and oyster mushrooms to velvet pipionni and nameko. Spores are inoculated into local wood including oak, birch and elder; and, harnessing the light and pure air of their location, the mushrooms thrive.

St Tola Goats
Author: Georgina Campbell

Butlers Chocolate Egg
Author: Georgina Campbell
