THE WILDS AWARDED BORD BIA JUST ASK RESTAURANT OF THE MONTH
The Wilds in Enniscorthy has been awarded Just Ask Restaurant of the Month for March. Selected by renowned food writer Georgina Campbell and Bord Bia, the Just Ask Restaurant of the Month rewards eateries across Ireland that exhibit best practices in showing transparency in the sourcing of the food on their menus. Set in a landmark historic building at the top of Weafer Street, Simon and Paula Nelson’s delightful café has been wowing customers since the day it opened in 2015. They’re ‘Official Supporters’ of The Wexford Food Family www.wexfordfoodfamily.com, a local initiative that highlights and supports the exceptionally diverse and high quality produce of the area.
“All of our meat is of Irish origin. Stafford’s Butchers in Enniscorthy and Macamore Buffalo Farm supply us with our fresh meat and O’Neill’s Bacon in Enniscorthy supply us with their whole ham, dry-cured rashers, sausages and black and white pudding. Millstream Fishmongers in Enniscorthy and Duncannon Smokehouse supply our seafood and we source our vegetables from The Veg Patch in Ferns and the organic Gorse Farm in Bunclody. Our eggs also come from Bunclody and our organic milk is supplied by The Village Dairy in Co. Carlow”.
The philosophy here has always been to use local and Irish seasonal, free-range and organic ingredients where possible, and the suppliers and producers credited on every menu at The Wilds include some of the very best producers in Wexford and the neighbouring counties.
