Gaelic Escargot began as an experiment in a one-bed apartment in Kilkenny.
To counteract an international shortage, it now exists on a farm in Garryhill, Co. Carlow. Producing for market is one thing, but Eva is very much about educating both the consumer and fellow producers to grow for the future.

In this episode you’ll also hear briefly from Patrice Cooney of Global Hydrate along with chef Rory Nolan ahead of his ‘Taste of Spain’ Savour Kilkenny dining event.
Next week, I’m off to lunch with Frank Curran of Petronella Restaurant in Kilkenny City to find out about his #tastekilkenny menu offerings.
