Meanwhile, Tracey's Farmhouse Kitchen proprietor Tracey Jeffery commented, "I'm delighted to receive this five-star grading from Tourism NI and especially pleased to be recognised for something that I truly am passionate about. I love welcoming guests into my cosy and very lived in kitchen. They roll their sleeves up and get stuck into bread making, and they feel a great sense of achievement when their soda bread is ready to eat. I take pride in offering guests a unique taste of what it is really like in this part of Northern Ireland."
