The U3A Wine Tasting group met at Audrey Kellett’s house on Thursday 24th November.
Tom and Roberta Duncan’s ‘Mystery Talk’ turned out to be a well illustrated talk about the Constantia winery near Capetown in South Africa. The distinctive feature about the tasting was the chocolate pairing devised by the Constantia wine company. Members had the opportunity to taste three different types of chocolate specially produced for the 3 exclusive Constantia wines to be sampled. The taste buds were tantalised by the chocolates which were infused with exotic flavours to complement the wines.
On Friday 2nd September, members of Armagh U3A, along with some members of Killyleagh and Upper Bann went on the “Belfast Bred” walk organised by the Kabosh Theatre Group.
Led by Barney the Baker, a chef on the Titanic, recently released from an iceberg thanks to global warming, the group called at various businesses as Barney gathered the ingredients for his next dinner. Starting at Sawers, where we sampled bread, bacon, cheese, octopus and olives; then on to Mourne Seafood for sqid, passing historic sites on our way to the John Hewitt bar to sample local beer and cider. They even stock gluten free beer. then on to McHugh’s bar one of the oldest in Belfast, for boxty and hot rock steaks. Finishing up in St George’s Market where Barney got the last of his ingredients.
