O’Flynn Meats in Waterford, one of the oldest family butchers in the country, was one of five winners of the EirGrid Euro-Toques Food Awards announced this week by Ciaran Cuffe, TD, Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.
Euro-toques Ireland, the Irish branch of the European Community of Chefs and Cooks, presents annual Food Awards that honour food producers or individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to Irish food. The theme of the awards this year was to acknowledge those that are maintaining the production and supply of foods traditional to Ireland’s culinary heritage. These awards are unique in that the recipients are nominated and selected by the top chefs and cooks in the industry.
Located in Waterford city centre, Bobby Flynn, along with his four sons, run one of the oldest family butchers in the country as well as operating the last small abattoir located in Waterford. Bobby Flynn is fourth generation in this business and with that comes an amazing family history of farmers and butchers.
