We were at the Medieval Festival in Carrigtwohill Co. Cork this weekend, buying hens from a medieval damsel and a man dressed as a monk (as you do).

We bumped into Arun & Gail from Green Saffron who had a stall at the food market there.  If you haven’t come across Green Saffron products yet, you are missing a treat.  We started to sell them shortly before last Christmas and they have been going really well.  They do a great range of spice mixes from the familiar such as Korma & Rogan Josh, to more unusual ones like Bombay Aloo and Masala Gosht. What they all have in common is the freshest flavours you can imagine – a million miles away from your local curry house.

Just this week we have started to stock a few new Green Saffron products: a Jalfrezi party sauce in a bottle which is really versatile as it can be used as a curry sauce, a marinade, for barbecues & on sandwiches.  Also there are two great new chutnies (or chatnies as they call them) – Mango & Date and Tamarind, Apple & Apricot.

If you ever get the chance to attend a Green Saffron curry night, jump at it.  A fascinating demo followed by lots of curry and Indian delights to eat – fantastic.  They are joining forces with O’Brien Chop House in Lismore Co. Waterford for a Curry Night on Friday 27th August.  The new Dungarvan Brewing Company will also be there.  We’ll hopefully have a Blasta Wholefoods table on the night as a number of customers have expressed an interest.  Further details from www.obrienchophouse.ie
