Halfway Hooley

Half way to St. Patrick’s Day Hooley and Irish Stew and Irish Soda Bread tasting contest will be held on September 19, 2015 starting at 4 pm at the “ O’Beethoven Garden Pub”.

Start working on your family’s favorite Irish Stew recipe for the 9th rematch of the Irish Stews.  You must register to participate in the cook-off in advance.  There is a $10 entrance fee and prizes will be awarded.  A select team of judges will judge the stew using The Irish Stew Appreciation Society International, Inc. guidelines.  For those interested in the Irish Soda Bread contest, similar guidelines will be used.  The application will be available on our website soon.

Like last year, you are invited to be a judge in the PEOPLES CHOICE AWARD.   For a $5 donation you will be given tasting bowls, spoons and a ballot form to complete for each Irish Stew and soda bread.  So come on out for an afternoon of great food, fellowship and a little ‘friendly’ competition.

Donations are requested for Irish Soda Bread to be sold with the Irish Stew.  If you would like your Soda bread to be entered into the tasting contest you must register in advance. 

Thank you to all previous stew and Irish soda bread contest participants who have so generously helped to support the society.  We look forward to seeing you at this years tasting and hope to see some new folks too.

Please contact Diana Jordan or go to “Sign-up Genius” if you are interested in volunteering at the Halfway Hooley.

Volunteers are needed to help serve during the tasting, assist the official judges and staff the Irish store.
