The Ballymena Today team were really excited to see that the Irish Restaurant Awards recognised Local Food Hero Rob Curley this week.

The Local Food Hero award recognises the individual that promotes food culture in their locality and stirs up the passion in people to explore various cuisines. They are inspirational foodies – from artisan producers to local chefs, to healthy eating advocates throughout Ireland.

Rob is all of the above. Along with Slemish Market Garden Rob Curley has been doing a beautiful thing, promoting local produce and inspiring others to pay attention to what they eat and where it comes from.

Our Ballymena Today team offer a huge congratulations to local food hero Rob Curley.
