What’s cooking in Westport!

 

Cook together in the community kitchen on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month! What’s Cooking in Westport is on the 1st Tuesday each month (10am-1pm) at the Free Methodist Church! Learn new skills, take home food. Childcare is available.

Join us to try new foods and recipes, share a meal, bring extras home, have a good time, and meet new people in your community. We pick the recipes together, focusing on local, seasonal, budget-friendly ingredients. Some months we have a specific cultural theme, a guest speaker from the community, or a special event.

The group is facilitated by Registered Dietitian, Kate Earl, from Country Roads Community Health Centre. We discuss different nutrition and food safety topics each month and members share healthy eating tips with each other.

The program is FREE. There is no cost to participate. We also offer free childcare. Please ask us if you need help with travel costs. All we ask from you is that you participate in the cooking (and clean up!), come ready to have fun, and be open to trying new foods.

FÁNAID

A traditional Irish Music from Belfast, Ireland.

FÁNAID…

He is much in demand as a session musician and has been teaching fiddle classes for ‘Belfast Trad’ for over 15 years. His compositions, released under the pseudonym Jan Jeffer, have featured on RTE Lyric FM, NTS Radio and at many of Ireland’s top music festivals, including the Sonorities Festival of Contemporary Music, the Cathedral Quarter Arts festival and Electric Picnic amongst others.

Fióna Ní Mhearáin…

… is a flute player, singer and fluent Irish speaker from Belfast who began learning music at tin whistle classes as a child hosted by the outstanding Belfast flute player Davy Maguire. This planted the seed for a love of traditional Irish flute playing and particularly the Belfast and Northern flute styles.

Paddy Morgan…

…from County Down has developed a unique style of accompaniment that seeks to remain faithful to tradition while exploring new techniques for the guitar in Irish music drawn from a diverse background. Over the years he has collaborated with a host of artists in various genres from flamenco troops (Al Andalus, K Passa Wipers) to jazzers (The Bog Frogs) and legends of Irish tradition such as fiddle masters Ben Lennon & John Carty and award winning singers Len Graham & Rosie Stewart.
