This is the first in a series of posts coming off the back of the 2012 Waterford Harvest Festival which takes in the bloggers tour (slow food tour) on the Thursday and Friday of the festival along with two days spent at the GIY Gathering 2012 at Theatre Royal, Waterford.
THERE AREN’T enough words to describe the food sampled on the Thursday night of the 2012 Waterford Harvest Festival. Cormac and the team at Bodéga on John Street in Waterford certainly made sure nobody in the building went hungry or thirsty for the night as the Tapini night as part of this year’s Harvest Festival. €29.50 a ticket was the asking price, with an optional beer pairing available for each of the nine courses on offer at €2.50 a beer. Add some wine into the mix and with the conversation flowing heavily (including some cracking 80s tunes by @navigatourist and @valskitchen), the night – for us anyway – was a total success. That, of course, and the fact that the place was jammed, the atmosphere buzzing and not a beat missed in the near five hours we were there.
Here’s a look at what was presented on the night, along with beer tasting notes to match.
