Larchfield Estate gets fired up to host exclusive dining experience

This November, Larchfield Estate, set in the heart of the County Down countryside tempts you to a very different culinary experience. This exclusive event is set to take place on Sunday 13th November and will showcase seasonal local produce, as part of Northern Ireland’s Year of Food & Drink.

Guests attending this unique dining experience will be treated to a mouth-watering banquet by Award-Winning smoking duo Samantha Evans and Shauna Guinn – The Hangfire Girls. Shauna originally from Belfast is set to launch their cookbook, Hangfire Smokehouse. Both Shauna and Sam gave up high powered jobs in London 3 years ago and spent 6 months travelling from Kansas to the Carolinas, Tennessee to Texas to pick the brains of the barbeque pit masters along the way. When they arrived back in Cardiff, they took over a small disused butcher’s shop a base for their smoked food pop ups before opening their own restaurant in Barry, South Wales.

Among the celebrity line-up on the evening, will be local celebrity chef, Paula McIntyre. Paula is passionate about local produce, having judged in the recent Food and Farming Awards with other renowned UK celebrity chefs, not just in Northern Ireland but throughout the UK. Paula appears regularly on BBC Radio Ulster John Toal Show and is the Director of Slow Food NI of which The Hangfire Girls are passionate advocates.

Speaking ahead of the event, Paula said, ‘I am delighted to be joining Sam and Shauna at Larchfield Estate showcasing our fantastic local produce at one of Northern Ireland’s most prestigious venues during our Year of Food & Drink. The Hangfire Girls won the Food and Farming Award for street food that I judged – I was blown away by their authentic barbecue. Tickets will be highly sought after, so get in quick.’

Sarah Mackie of Larchfield Estate added ‘It has long been a goal of ours to host a high end foodie event at Larchfield, private dining at its best and we are thrilled to be able to offer people the chance to experience both Paula, Sam and Shauna’s culinary expertise, using the superb array of local produce within the fantastic setting of Larchfield Barn.’
