The Cutting Edge of Cooking – Fresh Chefs, Fresh Food
A new generation of talent, fresh flavours, interesting influences and good ideas!
Planning for the ninth annual West Waterford Festival of Food is now underway with new events being devised, old favourites being organised and newly established showcases growing bigger and stronger!
Following the success of last year’s festival which celebrated Generations in Irish Food, the theme this year will shine a spotlight on the up-and-coming faces in Irish food and also the trends that are set to dominate the culinary world for the next year. For three days the beautiful coastal town of Dungarvan and its surrounding countryside will welcome some of Ireland’s finest chefs, producers, stall-holders and all round lovers of fine food as well. Focusing on fresh new talent and innovators, the West Waterford Festival of Food showcases some of the best producers, chefs, restaurants and food businesses in Ireland.
We are excited at having already set out some new events for 2016 - on Friday 15th April Peter Mulryan of Blackwater Distillery will hold a workshop where students can spend the day distilling a special festival gin to be delivered to Dungarvan in the evening - look out for the Health Hub, a new venue dedicated to talks and demos on the latest food trends hosted by Blasta Wholefoods - schools and youth groups can take part in our Education Programme which will be delivered at schools early in 2016 and culminate in a grand showcase at #wwfof16.
Watch our social media accounts for more news and exclusives and we look forward to welcoming you to our festival in April.
