The Aisling Children’s Arts Festival has put together a fundraiser which has all the right ingredients for a great evening’s entertainment.

The fundraiser, entitled ‘An Evening With Tracy Coyne’, will see the 2014 winner of ‘The Great Irish Bake Off’ show off some of her skills at The Sin Bin at Longford Rugby Club on Friday, February 27 at 8pm.

Tracy has been extremely busy since winning the TV3 show. She now has her own business, ‘Tracy’s Kitchen’, and has appeared on various television and radio shows.

According to Tracy, her philosophy is simple: “Take the best ingredients you can afford, do as little as you can to them and make meals that are accessible to all the family.”

The Kerry native will demonstrate some of her show-stopping recipes on the night and she’ll have lots of hints and tips for all.

There will be lovely nibbles to sample, supplied by various local artisan food producers. To round off the evening, a number of local personalities will test their skills in a fun Cake Icing Competition.

Tickets, which cost just €15, are now available from Davis SuperValu, Farrell & Coy, The Sin Bin or any member of the Aisling Festival Committee.

This event is kindly being sponsored by Davis SuperValu, Longford and all funds raised on the night go towards the annual Aisling Children’s Arts Festival.
