ONIEB Takes Part in ‘Schuman Lights Up’

On Wednesday 6 December the Office of the Northern Ireland Executive in Brussels joined countries, regions and tourist offices of Europe to take part in the annual Schuman Lights Up: Specialties from Europe event in the heart of the European Quarter of Brussels.

We were delighted to be joined by popular BBC Radio Ulster resident chef Paula McIntyre, making her return to Brussels, who served up a delicious traditional Northern Irish menu Lough Neagh Eels served on a bed of creamy celery dressing with homemade savoury soda bread, as well as handmade sweet soda bread topped with smooth apple butter. There was also a range of Northern Irish produce on offer from Pop Notch, Eleanor Craig’s FudgeArmagh Cider Company, Long Meadow Cider, and Irwin’s Howell’s Handmade biscuits.

There was a great reception to the delicious fare from the many attendees passing through the tent at Schuman Square with Northern Ireland receiving particular praise on social media.
