Aoife Carrigy, a freelance food, wine and travel writer spoke about Country Markets on The Morning Show on TV3 today, about the newfound interest in homebaking. Having lost a generation to the delights and smells of Victoria sponges, perfect pastry and butterfly buns, homebaking is now on the rise. There are several cookery schools and baking acadamies offering specialised courses.
Country Markets was mentioned as a possible outlet for those who felt they had reached a high enough standard to sell their produce. Aoife also made the point that members are encouraged to add variety to their market, rather than duplicating produce already available.
