Food Glorious Food is the theme for this year’s Ballyclare May Fair from Tuesday 24 until Monday 30 May.  This year’s fair will be stuffed with food stalls, cooking demonstrations, family fun activities and musical entertainment.  Celebrity chef, Paula McIntyre, will be creating delicious Ulster Scots dishes and local chef Daniel Harvey, from Daniel’s @ Tweedies, will be cooking up a storm with recipes for you to try at home, using local produce.
