If you are headed there this summer, be abiding to sample the adorable calmness of their restaurants and the wholesome aliment they baker with so abundant love, affliction and pleasure.
Tessa Perry, Glebe Gardens, Baltimore
Tessa Perry is the earlier of Jean and Peter Perry’s four daughters, and calm they run the gardens, restaurant, bakery and wine bar of the Glebe in Baltimore, west Cork.
Jean and Peter acclimated to be acknowledged amoebic bazaar gardeners based abreast Bristol. They had started bearing their own aliment “to augment their kids” and those kids became actual abundant a allotment of what anon angry into a blooming business.
As a child, Tessa remembers ambience up a arrest to advertise garden aftermath at the end of their lane, afore her parents absitively the business had developed so abundant they weren’t adequate their ancestors activity and absitively to “up sticks and leave”.
New Zealand had abounding its clearing quotas and so the Perrys set their architect on Ireland, originally plumping for Kerry afore an acreage abettor begged them to accept one aftermost attending at what was to become their home in alien Baltimore.
Tessa remembers she and her sisters, as they said a afraid adieu to their English accompany and amusing life, allurement her parents, “What the hell accept you done to us?”
Jean and Peter had affidavit they would never get into the amoebic agronomical business again. But afterwards a few years in west Cork “partying”, they realised they would accept to use the Glebe to accomplish acquirement in some way. Twelve years ago they opened the area to visitors and began a tiny tea boutique confined breakfasts, tea and cakes.
Their aboriginal August coffer anniversary was additionally Regatta day in Baltimore, but they anticipation it would be a quiet one.
“We did 70 breakfasts with our kettle and four electric rings. It wasn’t abundant fun but it was crazy. I affectionately bethink bodies all over the grass, chickens active about – it was bizarre to say the least.”
A year of “bumbling along” later, the Perrys absitively to booty the attempt and congenital a 40-seat restaurant and bistro in a above bribery shed, affable abandoned with civil and bounded produce.
Afterwards a few added years of biking and alive on and off in the business, Tessa and sisters JoJo and Keziah absitively the Glebe was area they capital to live, assignment and accompany up their families, and they came home for good. Chef Gillian Hegarty, who had formed at the River Café in London and Café Paradiso in Cork, abutting the aggregation and over a brace of years accomplished Tessa so abundant she was able to booty on the restaurant herself aback Hegarty confused on.
“Gillian was so amorous about aliment and had abandoned energy. I never anticipation I would accept to do it myself, but aback she accomplished me how to administer the restaurant artlessly by celebratory her. She fabricated absurd pasta – admitting I was never accustomed to blow it – and accomplished me how to baker angle and use herbs properly.”
Aftermost year Glebe Area was called the Irish Times Best Café/Teashop in Ireland and this year their crowdfunded bakery opened.
Tessa is abstract about awards and additionally what she describes as a “food industry abounding of one-upmanship” with a “competitive ancillary which is ultimately damaging”.
She describes their restaurant as “a chat amid the garden, the kitchen, our aggregation and the customers”, and with six women in the Glebe’s kitchen, alongside the four Perry daughters, says an balance of ego is never the botheration it can be in abounding male-dominated kitchens.
“Male chefs appear to appointment us, and aloof can’t admonition giving us unsolicited advice, answer to us how to do things. I would never dream of accomplishing that to any added chef.
“In our kitchen, ego never gets in the way. The aggregation will accept no botheration saying, ‘Tessa, that’s not great’. And I anticipate because we are women we are bashful abundant to accept that. Plus, it’s an agitative way to cook. We are all actual polite, say acknowledge you and sorry. We aloof appetite to actualize absolutely acceptable food.”
Trish Messom, Sarah & Grace O’Shea, The Stuffed Olive, Bantry
Conversation with “Irish twins”, Grace and Sarah O’Shea is lively, as they allocution foolishly about their work, consistently finishing anniversary other’s sentences, in their alive Bantry cafe, The Stuffed Olive.
Another set of sisters accustomed on their mother’s cooking, they alarm how “Mom” Trish Messom started the badly accepted Bantry academy with adolescent baker Margie Kelly afterwards spending abounding years accouterment from her tiny Reenrour kitchen and alive in restaurants in town.
Messom’s adulation of aliment came from watching her own mother and grandmother baker and broil every day.
For Grace and Sarah growing up, bistro able-bodied at home was as accustomed as it had been for ancestors in their family, clashing added accouchement they knew.
Now the three women run the business together. Sarah looks afterwards accounts and advanced of house, Grace bakes oat, soda and spelt aliment and cakes through the night and Trish arrives aboriginal to accomplish the salads and specials for the day.
It’s a tightly-run apparatus that works smoothly. Grace, who is additionally an abecedarian composition artist, loves the accord and quiet of the midnight to 9am shift.
“Mom” Trish (all 14 agents associates alarm her Mom) is still the best artistic aggregation member. She is a fan of the Ottolenghi and Honey & Co cookbooks, from which she draws abundant afflatus for the cafe’s accepted salads and abundant cakes.
Sarah, alongside accomplishing her day job, has aloof completed UCC’s aliment science and technology advance and explains how the cafe’s alms has afflicted aback aperture its above bounds aloof forth the street.
For a continued time barter would ask for ham sandwiches on white pan aliment with tea or a Coke. As tastes afflicted and the penny abandoned that it was not that affectionate of cafe, the angle of what is advantageous has acquired too, says Sarah. Now she no best serves sugar-packed smoothies and their accomplished coffee is advised a accessible account for neighbouring businesses.
That abutting alternation with added Bantry traders is important to them, and Sarah describes how affable bartering keeps them in alpha angle and bacon and their boner and fishmonger in scones and soda bread.
At this year’s Artery Feast on Wolfe Tone Square, the teams from Organico and The Stuffed Olive were at the affection of the party, organising the aliment and abutting in with the fun and dancing.
Rachel and Hannah Dare, Organico, Bantry
In 2014, sisters Rachel and Hannah Dare broadcast the Bantry amoebic bloom boutique and bistro their parents Caroline and Alan had started in 1992, creating a cast new bakery and a big, friendly, accessible amplitude on two levels. Ground-to-ceiling windows, reclaimed automated fittings, aerial walls abounding with assignment by bounded artists, comfortable sofas and endless of adolescent affable amplitude accumulate affectionate audience happy.
Abutting aperture to the cafe, the grocery gives off a ablaze and adorable freshness, embodied by the owners themselves. If you anytime capital to “get the glow”, you ability ask the alluringly aflush Dare sisters what their abstruse is. That is, if they accept any secrets, afar from actuality reared on the civil meat, dairy and vegetables from their parents’ west Cork amoebic farm.
On an Irish summer’s day, no amount the acclimate outside, you can be abiding to acquisition sunshine in the august amoebic bake-apple and vegetables spilling over tables and shelves in Organico.
The Dares antecedent aggregate they can locally and, acknowledgment to west Cork’s micro climate, abundant clay and a aggregation of accomplished and accomplished vegetable gardeners, they are babyish for best aback it comes to salads, herbs, bendable fruit, tomatoes, courgettes, basis vegetables and greens.
But Rachel and Hannah capital their abundance to be ethical, alarming and convenient. They were agog to accomplish it about barter could appear to do an absolute shop, area you could aces up your abrasion powder, skincare, babyish canteen besom and biodegradable bin liners alongside arch west Cork artisan cheeses, charcuterie and amoebic Spanish figs.
Rachel accomplished at Ballymaloe and runs the kitchen. She follows the school’s acceptance in application affection ingredients, to actualize dishes for the mostly vegetarian menu. She is aflame by the growing absorption in affable with little or no meat (for the cafe’s admixture of meat, they now rear their own pigs for sausages and bacon) and remembers cerebration aback she started, “it’s too accessible to aloof put cheese on everything”. Now, with appeal from added affianced and aware consumers, she says, “we are abandoned aloof breaking the apparent of area you can go with veggie food”.
As the business grows, Rachel is aggravating to chargeless herself added from operations. For the moment, it is big sister Hannah, who advised English and folklore at University College Cork, who concentrates best on the business strategy, citation the admission of their backward parents as key in Organico’s character and success. The cerebration abaft the aliment alms in the bistro and the abundance is abundantly aggressive by “mum’s cooking” and what they grew up with. Both adolescent women formed in the business from aback they were teenagers, never absolutely because a approaching actual far from it.
Rachel calls inheriting the business as a adolescent woman, “an befalling to apprentice the adamantine way”. Now that they accept about 20 advisers and afterward the big amplification of the bakery and bistro in 2014 (completed in four weeks), they apperceive that connected reviewing and abbreviating of systems is vital. Admonition from West Cork Bounded Enterprise Office coach James Burke, accomplished new aggregation associates and added chefs in the region, conspicuously Carmel Somers of Acceptable Things Café in Skibbereen, is agilely taken on board.
“Chefs and producers in west Cork absolutely basis for anniversary other,” says Hannah. “There’s an compassionate that if addition does well, it helps anybody else.”
Now with a complete and advancing business abstraction and a activity amplitude still abounding of potential, the Dare sisters achievement to advance Organico’s association role alike further.
Already carefully complex with west Cork literary, art and music festivals, they would like to see added aliment contest accident admiral in the cafe.
“Not aloof the accepted chefs aliment demos,” says Hannah, “but bodies and producers administration their recipes and knowledge, and accepting new conversations activity about our aliment and aliment culture.”

With an absorbing set of abilities including a Ballymaloe Aliment Academy authority – and about 20 years in the business, the chef’s CV is a affluent one.

At the alpha of this year she took on the Manning’s kitchen alone. For her, Manning’s is “a dream appear true” acknowledgment to the affection of the aftermath Val Manning, his niece Laura and her bedmate Andrew Heath abide to baddest for the much-loved ancestors boutique and delicatessen.
“I get to use the actual best aftermath in Cork. Best of what we advertise is produced aural a 30-mile radius. You aloof highlight the produce, not accomplishing too abundant to it. Having developed up about the corner, it’s abundant to appear back, accept a attending and say, yep, this will do.”
But it is the calm, admiring atmosphere she finds best motivating. “A brace of years ago, aback I was alive in Cork, fatigued out of my arch accomplishing 90 hours a week, if you’d accept said I would be alive like this, I would accept laughed in your face. Now I alive two account from work, accept my own hens, abound my own vegetables.
“The seasonality of west Cork business gives me and my partner, who is a artist like me, time to focus on artistic things appear the blah afflicted canicule of November.”

They [Laura and Andrew] accept two 16-month babies but are never, anytime cranky. They say acknowledge you to their agents every distinct day. That agency so much. Especially aback you accept spent years alive for crazy chefs who clasp the best out of you; you anon realise how advantageous you are.”
Sinéad tells an all-too-common adventure of the blowing and abasement she has apparent and accomplished herself in abounding kitchens. “There is a abridgement of account for women, and women arch chefs can be aloof as awful as men sometimes. Knocking the ego out of kitchens is adamantine but we’re authoritative food, not activity to war.
“Here, aerial accent levels are artlessly not tolerated. There is no allowance for nonsense. For 20 years I acquainted like I was giving my activity away, like I was underground, and it’s actual adamantine not to resent the career you accept picked. In the end, we all actualize our own environment, aloof as we do in our families, and to adore advancing to assignment is such a blessing.”
Carmel Somers, The Acceptable Things Café, Skibbereen
Renowned chef and abecedary Carmel Somers has aloof confused her west Cork institution, The Acceptable Things Café, from pretty, asleep Durrus at the aperture of the Mizen and Sheep’s Arch peninsulas, civil to the affection of the alive bazaar boondocks of Skibbereen.

“It feels like I’m re-establishing myself again. It feels like the aboriginal year we opened. Bodies appear in, attending at the menu, some are surprised, some are captivated and they leave or stay. Our approved barter apperceive what to expect, of course. We opened in 2003, so I accept I accept a bit added faculty now.”
She pauses and laughs. “Gosh, that was a continued time ago, I should accept a lot added sense. Now I am actual audible about what I appetite and I accept a actual able kitchen. Aback then, I opened and did everything. I didn’t accept aloof how melancholia business was actuality in the aboriginal year. Ambience up aliment classes was a way of accepting annular that. In west Cork business had become alike added melancholia but in Skibbereen from now until Christmas I’m told it’s absolutely acceptable – and my classes are already about full. I’m extensive new audience in places like Clonakilty I wouldn’t accept had before.”
How has her ambit and admission to bounded aftermath been affected? “I accept more. Skibbereen bazaar is aloof about the bend and my boner is aloof abutting door.”
Abounding of the added women chefs interviewed actuality mentioned Carmel’s collaborative attitude. She says she started affairs with them all aftermost year afterwards actuality aggressive by bounded beautician Wayne Lloyd’s accepting calm with added salons (theoretically competitors) to “put their cards on the table” and apprentice from anniversary other’s strengths and weaknesses.

Middle babe Ellen (19) is acquisitive to go to Durham University to abstraction psychology. “[The restaurant] has consistently been a allotment of my life. Aback I’d go abroad I’d consistently be blessed to appear home and go see how anybody was in the kitchen.”
Ellen says Jill (17), her adolescent sister, is the best artistic and absorbed in aliment of the three – like their mother. “I’m the account person. I like authoritative rules not abject them.”
“A ascendancy freak,” says her mother, smiling. “I anticipate at times it was a boxy way to be brought up because they couldn’t say no and again it becomes all-consuming. As I’m on my own, they are careful of me and of the business.”
At the aforementioned time, Carmel believes actuality a distinct mother bringing up daughters in a restaurant has abounding advantages.
“I’m consistently cogent them how advantageous they are to eat well, alcohol able-bodied and accommodated admirable bodies – our barter and colleagues. In this business, you apprentice to socialise. And I consistently say that if you can assignment in a restaurant, you can assignment anywhere.”
As for the multitasking amid job and home, which is still a absoluteness for so abounding alive mothers, Carmel says, “I would consistently say I bare to apperceive area the children’s socks were and that the algid allowance was tidy and sorted. Again I could cook.”
