Are your soup-making skills a bit rusty?
If you could do with a primer in the kitchen before winter arrives, there’s a unique opportunity to learn from the very best in West Cork in October.
Rob Krawczyk of Michelin-Starred Restaurant Chestnut in Ballydehob, will be sharing his secrets to making the perfect soup at home on Sunday, October 10th, 2021… and it’s all happening in a cosy country pub.
The appearance is part of a creative line-up of events organised as part of West Cork Feel Good Festival, a programme curated by 49 North Street Skibbereen, The Wellbeing Network, West Cork and Mental Health Engagement, Cork Kerry HSE to inspire locals to safely engage in activities “that connect people and communities and contribute on their wellbeing”.
The Autumn Soup demo will take place at Levis Corner House, where you can stick around and enjoy a pint or a coffee afterwards before Sunday Sustenance “an afternoon of events exploring the relationship between our mental health and the natural environment”.
“Rob is going to demonstrate and chat through the making of an autumnal soup using beautiful West Cork ingredients. Guests will be able to interact with Rob while he cooks, ask questions, taste.” say the organisers.

“Everyone will get a little lunch box with a cup of hot soup, The Chestnut Restaurant signature bread and house-made cultured smoked butter along with a sweet treat to take away and enjoy.”
Later Deirdre McHugh of Skibbereen Family resource centre will host a panel discussion with filmmaker Aoise Tutty Jackson, musician Kevin McNally and horticulturalist Peter Dunican, with a book launch from Pol O’Colmain and music from Rubicon.
At 7pm, Luka Bloom will perform live at the venue, with an evening of story and song outdoors.
