Pizza success for Nathalie’s new DIY kits

PIZZA SUCCESS: Nathalie Perrin from The Wood Oven Kenmare is now offering new DIY pizza kits at Neighbour Food in Killarney.

The quick onset of COVID meant massive changes to businesses last year - and while many owners faced full closure - some have completely changed how they serve their customers.

That's what happened to Nathalie Perrin who was kept extremely busy attending farmer's markers, campsites and other events cooking artisan pizzas on a wood fire stove. However, she had to do a complete 360 degree turn to stay afloat as every event cancelled overnight.

On Thursday, Nathalie, who has been running The Wood Oven Kenmare since 2015, began selling her new Dough It Yourself Artisan Pizza Kits at Killarney's Neighbourfood, located on the Tralee/Killarney road at O'Callaghan Coaches.

She introduced her new product just before Christmas but is ready for the Killarney market as she expands, and it has been going very well.

The kits, which are also selling in Centra in Kenmare, include a unique dough and signature sauce recipe which Nathalie created herself. There's enough to make two 10 inch pizzas - which she says is a fabulous way for families to cook together.

"I had mainly been doing private parties, food fairs, farmer's markets and going to two campsites in Fossa. I've got a Gazebo with a woodfired oven," Nathalie told the Killarney Advertiser. "And last year everything went."

"Because of COVID I launched this and it's been busy and exciting. It's great family fun and a treat. The instructions, which are in the box, are easy to follow."

Selling at €9.50, the dough is vegan, while the sauce is dairy free and vegan also. She's also working on a recipe for a Gluten Free version.

"I put a lot of love into it. I hope to get into local shops in Killarney soon."

You can pre-order Nathalie's pizza box at neighbourfood.ie via O’Callaghan’s Coaches on the Tralee Road and orders are ready for collection every Thursday afternoon.

You can also find more information on Facebook and Instagram: The Wood Oven Kenmare, or call Nathalie on 087 9362662 or email thewoodoverkenmare@gmail.com.

There’s no language barrier when it comes to dancing – which is why one local group is organising classes to unite communities.

KASI, the Killarney Immigrant Support Centre, has teamed up with dance instructor John Moriarty to teach both Ukrainians and multiple cultures living in Kerry Irish set dancing steps from next week.

The first class will take place on Tuesday evenings, starting next week (September 27) at St Mary’s Parish Hall at 6.30pm and all are welcome to join.

The idea is to help Ukrainians living in Killarney and Kerry to come and have fun and get to know locals better, KASI coordinator, Marilyn Catapat-Counihan, explained to the Killarney Advertiser.

“We have a women’s group for all ages where we do crochet, sewing and art and crafts, where they can talk which is good. I had the music on and they were dancing. I asked if they would like to do dancing classes so I organised it with John Moriarty who is well known in Killarney.”

She added that the women are very excited to learn set dancing and get to know other people from the area.

“Sometimes when you meet new people the language can be a barrier and when you’re dancing everybody is moving. He will open it to everyone so there’ll be integration, it’s fun as well. They are all very excited.”

The rising cost of fuel is already having a negative effect on charity events with some limiting numbers.

On October 9, the annual Multiple Sclerosis South Kerryv Walk takes place over the Old Kenmare Road.

First run in 2002, this year’s event will celebrate 20 years since its foundation but two years were lost as a result of the pandemic.

This year’s walk will be limited to 150 people – three coach loads – so event organisers can cut back on running costs.

It will only be possible to participate in this year’s event if walkers pre-register.

“Walkers must raise at least €40 to make it worthwhile,” organiser John O’Shea told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Spaces are limited, 150 people equals three coaches and we need smaller coaches to get into the start of the Old Kenmare Road as that is just a bog road. We have limited numbers for cost and operational reasons.”

Mr O’Shea thanked event sponsors O’Callaghan Coaches and The Gleneagle Hotel for their support of the event.

Registration forms can be obtained by calling John on 087 2348824.
