Taste of Dublin is back!
Some people get excited about Christmas, here at Sláinte, we’re all about the food so we’re jumping with excitement that the Taste of Dublin Festival is only four weeks away!
Over 30,000 foodies are expected over the four days, starting on 16th June, with a ‘homecoming’ theme welcoming back some of the Irish chefs who are making waves abroad.
The line-up for the festival includes Washington-based Cathal Armstrong, Anna Haugh, Gordon Ramsay’s former Head Chef, the critically acclaimed Robin Gill, US celebrity TV chef Stuart O’Keeffe (“Chef Stuart”) and London-based “Lazy Chef” Simon Lamont.
Some of Ireland’s favourite chefs including Dunbrody House’s Kevin Dundon, Chapter One’s Ross Lewis, Stephen Gibson of Pichet, Edward Hayden, Neven Maguire, The Great Irish Bake Off’s Paul Kelly, Rachel Allen and Jaipur’s Sunil Ghai will also be showcasing across the festival.
We plan our Taste days like others plan a day at the races, so we’ve picked some of our faves for this year:
Flogas BBQ with Dunbrody House – A brand new feature for Taste of Dublin, Flogas is partnering with the award winning Dunbrody House and Chef Kevin Dundon to create an exciting new BBQ feature at Taste of Dublin. We’re expecting BBQ perfection after this!
We love a cooking demo so we’ll be in line for the Electrolux Chefs’ Secrets. Visitors will have the chance to give their culinary skills a workout and master new cooking techniques on the inspirational range of home appliances from Electrolux, with cooking demos from guest chefs.
Did someone say Tapas? The Rioja Tapas Fantastica experience looks fun. Complemented by wines from the Rioja region, the new Taste Tapas area will bring a little taste of Spain to visitor’s palates.
There’s too much to mention so check the schedule out for yourself here: What’s On
