It’s that time of year again…Bloom in the Park is here! Bloom 2014 is taking place in the Phoenix Park Dublin over the June bank holiday weekend, from Thursday 29th May until Monday 2nd June 2014.  Each year the event continues to attract thousands upon thousands of people for a weekend filled with fun. Bloom 2013 attracted over 110,000 and this year promises to be be even bigger and better! With something for everyone and fun for all the family, visitors to Bloom will enjoy cookery and craft demonstrations, free gardening advice from the experts, Irish food produce, live entertainment and gardening workshops. Don’t forget kids go for free!

I will be doing cookery demonstrations in The Quality Kitchen on Friday and Saturday. Drop by at 2.15 pm on Friday or 2.45pm on Saturday and say hello. I will be cooking up some fun and friendly recipes including my mexican fish tacos, and my crowd pleasing chocolate mud pie cake.  There will also be copies of my books available to buy if you want one signed.  Also my new range of Skoff Pies will have a stand in the Love Irish tent. We will be holding tastings and would love to hear what you think of each pie option so make sure you drop by! Keep an eye out for my dad who we are trying to convince to be the official Pie Man for the weekend- he’ll be the one dressed all dapper!
