“As Irish as potatoes” Planting spuds at Knockree for the EUPC. 6th May 2018

We have been working hard to bring great food to the convergence as we believe that this is the piece that turns a gathering into a celebration! To help us achieve this we are  planting a vegetable garden to grow the bulk of our spuds and greens and herbs on site to offer attendees a truly locally sourced, low impact vegan wholefood meal plan.

But we also understand that people will have a diverse range of needs and requirements so we are looking to offer the following choices:

  • A choice of the vegan wholefood gluten free catering as either fully catered (3 meals a day) for €70 for the 5 days or a dinner only option for €50 for the 5 days.
  • If hostel accommodation is booked, you also have access to the self catering kitchens
  • If you’re camping or in a van you obviously also have the option of self catering at your camp.

Tell me more about the vegan catering option?

The vegan catering option is being provided by our in house cook, and all food will be pretty much solely organic food grown locally, in season and certainly grown on the island of Ireland, though there will be a judicious use of oils and spices from further afield. As previously mentioned we are designing and planting a kitchen garden to provide us with the bulk of potatoes and greens.

What’s on the menu?

We are still finalising the details of the actual menu, and a lot will depend on what is available at the time of the EUPC, but it will all look something like this:

Breakfast: 0700 ~ 09.00
Hot oat porridge, muesli and fruit and seeds
Breads, vegan spreads and jams

Lunch: 12.30 ~ 14.30
Soups , salads, breads and spreads
A vegan dessert or cake or fruit

Dinner: 17.30 ~ 19.30
Warming hearty evening stew and vegetable
A vegan dessert or cake or fruit

The cost for this is €70 for all 3 meals for the 5 days, or €50 if you take the dinner only option and self cater your own breakfast and lunches.

Please note that you will need to bring your own plate/bowl, mug and cutlery and be responsible for washing them up yourself in the separate washing up area.
