 The Argory

Chris has been a chef at Uluru Bar and Grill in Armagh city centre for 6 years.  At 25, Chris is a young, experienced and innovative chef who is passionate about food. During his time at South West College in Dungannon, he competed in the Student Culinarian Northern Ireland competition at IFEX in 2014, and won with a gold ‘Best in class’.  He believes if you have fantastic local produce and keep it simple, you can’t go wrong.  He looks forward to showing visitors his dishes and inspires you to shrug the ready-made meals and take-aways, take his lead, and cook something fresh and tasty at home. Chris will be preparing a main dish plus dessert, championing local ingredients and visitors will have the opportunity to taste the dishes.

Sheena purchased The Moy Larder in March 2016 and they pride themselves on producing fabulous homemade food. Their brunch is famous around the local area, which means that they are a buzzing, cosy café especially on a Saturday and Sunday. Having a dedicated baker in house also gives them the edge on all things sweet and they now serve afternoon tea with all the homemade treats you could imagine, perfect for special occasions. Sheena will be encouraging visitors all to have a go at making fresh pasta and will then create dishes from this, allowing you to taste the difference in the quality and taste compared to dried pasta.

The Argory would like to thank Flo Gas for sponsoring the cooking station for the market.

Children can enjoy a foodie trail around the estate or enjoy a guided tour of the house and view the spectacle that is ‘Artificial Sunshine’ in the house. The Argory’s Courtyard Coffee Shop will be open and visitors can enjoy a variety of homemade cakes, scones, paninis and speciality sausage rolls from the NT Cookbook.

Treat yourself to something special in the gift shop, packed with a brand new range of Easter products. The Argory’s famous Good Food Market home baked apple tarts and shortbread will also be on sale in the courtyard, for one day only. Don’t forget to pop into the second-hand bookshop which holds lots of literary gems just waiting to be re-discovered.

The Argory’s Good Food Market promises to be a fantastic day out for the entire family.
