As a long suffering purveyor of the merits and delights of Waterford’s most famous delicacy, the humble Blaa (a square-shaped yeast roll), it was with an enormous sense of pride, delight and downright, “I told ‘ya so”, that Waterford celebrated international recognition for the Blaa earlier this week in the form of a Euro-toques award.
In particular, four stalwort Waterford bakeries, Hickey’s and M&D of Waterford City, Harney’s of Kilmacow and Barron’s of Cappoquin were commended for their continued traditional production of the famous roll.
