Here's some exciting foodie news. Jamie Oliver is coming to town!! A whole generation of young foodies have grown up watching his shows drawn in by his easygoing 'pukka' attitude towards food. He will be in Ireland soon to launch this year’s Taste of Dublin Food and Drink Festival on Thursday June 14th at the Iveagh Gardens. This will be the first time Jamie has ever given a live cooking demonstration in Ireland.
This is the seventh Taste of Dublin and it will run from Thursday June 14th to Sunday 17th June. Jamie will be in good company as other chefs such as Valentine Warner, Thomasina Miers, Rachel Allen, Oliver Dunne, Ross Lewis and Derry Clarke will all take to the stage over the four days.There will also be two live
entertainment stages, over 100 exhibitors and 20 of Dublin's best restaurants where you will be able to choose from a range of delicious food. You will also be able to pick up informative tips
with culinary demonstrations in the Chef’s Theatre and participate in intimate Q&A
sessions with top chefs at the Chef’s Table.
I am very excited about this event, it isn't the cheapest event in the world as you have to buy your ticket and then buy food on top of that, but to see Jamie live in action is worth parting with my hard earned cash!!
