It’s been awhile but this afternoon I’m down in Ballymaloe at their inaugural Litfest which is going on until Monday, with loads of amazing international and Irish speakers programmed and a whole bevy of free stuff in the Fringe festival. Including this:
FOR FOOD’S SAKE
a taste of personal palate-shaping experiences
When? Sat 4th & Sun 5th May, 3pm–4pm, with fresh interviews every 20 minutes
Where? The Big Shed, Ballymaloe Litfest, Ballymaloe House, Shanagarry, Co Cork
What? Food writer and blogger, Aoife Carrigy of Holymackerel.ie will host a series of short interviews with food writers, bloggers, chef and producers who will remember some of their most treasured palate-shaping experiences, from the recipe or dish tasted that changed their life to the book or conversation that changed their food philosophy.
Who? Michelle Darmody of Cake Cafe, Denis Cotter of Cafe Paradiso, Fingal Ferguson of Gubbeen Smokehouse, Michael Quinn of Waterford Castle, Paul Flynn of The Tannery and more!
FFS? For Food’s Sake are a Dublin-based collective of food fans who stage regular food-focussed events including foodie movies and food discussion evenings.
