The Story of the Producer
The Lismore Food Company
The Lismore Food Company is the brainchild of Beth-Ann Smith and brothers Owen and Ken Madden, all three of whom share a love of fine ingredients and a lifetime of experience in food.
Beth-Ann is Ballymaloe Cookery School trained and head chef at Lismore Castle. The Madden brother's family opened a bakery and public house on Lismore’s Main Street in the early 1800’s which is now home to The Lismore Food Company.
Generations later, they continue this rich tradition of baking in the same historic location.
The packaging of their biscuits befits the sheer quality inside - encased inside gold embossed cylinders wrapped in tissue -All Butter Irish Shortbread; Lemon Polenta; Hazelnut, Cinnamon and Raisin; Dark Chocolate and Cardamom; Golden Ginger and Cacao Nibs. In a word - delicious.
