"For Food's Sake" is an evening dedicated to talking about and tasting food. Food culture in Ireland is stronger than ever and has sparked this bi-monthly discussion on all aspects of food in Ireland today. Every talk will approach different topics and provide guests the opportunity to hear from some of the key figures in the food industry in Ireland.
There will be food tastings on the night courtesy of several Irish artisan producers who will tell you a bit about what they do and let you taste the results for yourself. And of course there will be a full bar to help get the conversation going.
The first talk “The Great Green Hope – where lies the future for Irish food production?” will be tackling issues regarding the positive opportunities and challenges facing Irish producers. It will be held at 7.30p.m. in the Sugar Club, Lesson Street on Thursday 31st March and admission will cost €5.
The talk will be hosted by Aoife Carrigy, the former deputy editor of FOOD&WINE Magazine. Aoife will be directing a range of questions towards the different panellists at each talk. The panellists for the first evening will be:
- Graham Roberts, artisan producer, Connemara Smokehouse
- Suzanne Campbell, journalist, blogger and co-author of Basket Case: What's Happening to Ireland's Food
- Pat Smith, General Secretary, Irish Farmers' Association
- Una Fitzgibbon, Director of Marketing Services, Bord Bia
So come on down , get involved and join the discussion
