BBC Radio 4 Coverage of our Special Award for International Creativity
BBC Radio 4’s Food Programme covered this years event and did a special feature about the McCarthys. Jack and Tim were delighted to receive the only Irish gold medal from La Confrérie des Chevaliers du Goûte Boudin, or the Brotherhood of the Knights of the Blackpudding in 2013. Not only was it the only Irish medal it was an International victory as it was for “International Creativity”.
What did they do to earn this accolade you wonder? Jack and Tim created a pudding inspired by the centre-piece of a medieval feast. Kanturk is derived from the Irish, “Ceann Tuirc”, which means “The Boar’s Head” so in honor of their home town they stuffed a locally sourced boar’s head with a special rum and raisin black pudding. The judges were wowed by their creative approach.
Not only did they win the medal, BBC Radio 4 covered the event in The Food Programme and visited Kanturk to interview Jack and Tim.
We will be wowing the picnicers on the main stage on the Saturday night – well okay, we won’t be on the main stage, but we will be on at the presigious “Theatre of Food” at Electric Picnic. 30th August – 1st September.

Our marinaded sirloin roast is reduced from 14.99 per kg to 13.99 per kg
The ideal romantic dinner for two. This succulent roast is easy to cook and will definitely impress. This tender cut is taken from the top of the sirloin and is marinaded in our own home-made red wine marinade.
At the end of May, we were delighted to be involved in the Sheridan’s food Festival. We feel it is the best producer driven food festival in the country.
McCarthys ran a stall and were very pleased when we won the sausage competition with our delicious wild garlic sausage (now out of season – sorry). The competition was judged by the lovely Ella McSweeney, journalist and broadcaster.
