All Ireland Winner Best New Meat Product at the Associated Craft Butchers of Ireland

All Ireland Winner Best New Meat Product at the Associated Craft Butchers of Ireland

Congratulations to Noel Lambe on winning the Best New Meat Product at the Associated Craft Butchers of Ireland national finals at the K Club.

Noel came up with the idea of combining Nolan’s famous sausages with chopped smoked bacon, homemade cranberry black pudding as well as our homemade white pudding in a pastry covered roulade, all combining together to make one delicious Irish Breakfast Roll. Noel was very proud to win both the Leinster Final & All Ireland Final competitions.

The awards were presented by Darina Allen, Ballymaloe Cookery School, Champion of Irish Butchers and Irish Artisan Food Producers.

Darina spoke of her great regard for traditional butchery skills; skills that have been passed down through generations and how wonderful that was and that is what Nolan’s of Kilcullen is all about.

“Butchers understand the value of quality meat, the value of traditional Irish grass-fed breeds; don’t underestimate the value of traditional skills and producing real meat” she passionately stressed. “Butchers are part of our food culture, part of our tradition, butchers must tell their story, how you source your meat, the real farm to fork story; you are the experts with the real knowledge and skills”
