A really nice bunch of people gathered together to meet me and show me their produce at Nora and John Egan’s fine Georgian Mansion, Inch House Country House and Restaurant, just outside Thurles in Co. Tipperary, which not only has a lovely restaurant but accommodation as well – great four poster beds! I was really interested in meeting these particular producers because two years ago they banded together to form the Tipperary Food Producers which collectively, they agree, is the best thing they ever did. It has given them all the opportunity not only to make new friends, both business wise and socially, and whereas before they might have been slightly isolated in their own little worlds, now they have each other to compare notes on marketing, packaging, distribution, and in all of these things!

Nora, a former nurse and mother of seven children, runs the house and restaurant with their daughter, Mairin, whilst John and their son, Joe, run the farm. In recent times the Egans have diversified with an enterprising artisan venture producing black pudding divised from an old recipe of Nora’s 90 year old mother, Mary Ryan, who is delighted with the success of the pudding. Known as Nora Egan’s Inch House Black Pudding it has been going down a treat and is now being featured on many restaurant menus. The pudding is cooked in a terrine and sold in log shapes, or you can have a vacuum pack quarter log. It is not a heavy black pudding, which is nice, and there is also a coeliac version available. Nora is now working on a white pudding so watch this space. Nora is also doing a lovely range of conserves and dressings – love the orange sauce and the plum sauce – great with the black pud!
