Blast and Wilde Savoury Butters win Supreme Champions at Blas na hEireann 2014

For only the last eight months, Blast & Wilde, based in Monknewtown, Slane, Co Meath, have been working on and building up a range of innovative and gourmet diary products that they believe will delight and tantalize the tastebuds.
They proved to be as true as their word, when they won the Supreme Champion at the finals of this year's Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards, held today in Dingle!


Operated, from premises at their home near Slane, by Graham & Bernie Canning and their family, Blast & Wilde had earlier in the day scooped the 'Best in Farmers Market Award' for Meath, before going on to collect Gold (Wild Irish Herb & Roast Garlic Pesto Butter), Silver (Black Olive & Sundried Tomato Tapenade) and Bronze (Zesty Lime, Chilli & Coriander) Blas Awards for their butter products,.


Graham and Bernie Canning from Blast & Wilde, Supreme Champions at Blas na hEireann 2014


Their food is all about authentic flavour, made from quality, fresh, locally-sourced seasonal ingredients and created for the food connoisseur and kitchen rookie alike. Graham firmly believes that anyone can become a chef and by using their products they can bring the restaurant into the heart of every family home.




"We are absolutely delighted with the awards today, we knew our products were great but we didn't expect to be Supreme Champions", said Graham. "Our blended-by-hand products are easy to use and extremely versatile as a spread, in soups or casseroles or toppings. Using seasonal ingredients, we can produce a wide variety of flavours for specific occasions".



"As well as giving you a unique variety of choice there are no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives so you know you are buying a 100% natural Irish product", added Bernie.



Currently on the market they have Wild Garlic and Pesto Butter, Lime, Coriander and Chilli Butter and Black Olive Tapenade Butter but several more varieties are in the pipeline.
