Saturday 11 April 2020 will see the official launch of the maison djeribi weekly food stall in Carrick-on-Shannon (Leitrim) (in Lowes’ yard on Bridge street). There will be sourdough bread (wood-fired hand-kneaded slow-fermented) and some other opinionated edibles : a weekly selection of sweet, savoury and fermented stuff. On a few Saturdays from mod-to-late-February there will probably be trial runs, the dates and times of which will be listed on instagram @maisondjeribi.
maison djeribi is set on a 4.878 acre plot of Leitrim soil, a hillside where artist djeribi makes things, grows plants, hangs out with the goats, dances and bangs the drums loudly. Over the years a lot of trees have been planted, coppiced, pollarded in order to provide timber to fire the cleverly designed (patented in 1913) Belgian handmade oven.
The kitchen-bakery and edible garden have their root in a life-long love of food : eating and cooking, sharing and discussing, enjoying and being grateful for.
