Taste a Memory Foods
Made at Ballincollig, a short distance west of Cork city, Anne Bradfield’s evocatively named ‘Taste A Memory’ pies and ready meals have earned a huge fan club, thanks to the quality ingredients used and real homemade flavours.
A good example of the appeal of locally made ‘free-from’ food, no additives or preservatives are used, just quality meats, vegetables and spices. In addition, these tasty meals are low in fat and low in salt, and most of them are gluten free.
Having built up her business from selling only at farmers’ markets (a great way to get immediate feedback from customers) this former chef now has the satisfaction of seeing her products selling in major supermarkets and also in some of the best independent stores - mainly in County Cork but also further afield, including Fresh and Nolan’s of Clontarf in Dublin.
