The 8th annual Savour Kilkenny Festival of Food opened tonight at the National Craft Gallery. With my So Kilkenny hat on I was there to pick up some shots of the launch and check out the Food Art Competition which included some great head pieces made from milk cartons and other recycled food packaging.

The festival was officially opened by Mayor of Kilkenny Andrew McGuinness while John McKenna was on hand to launch Olivia Goodwillie’s (Lavistown House) new book Something In The Tin which can be picked up locally over the course of the festival.

Getting underway tonight, Savour Kilkenny continues through until Monday. For me, I’ll be catching the Banter sessions at the National Craft Gallery tomorrow at 12.30pm and 2.30pm and can’t wait to wind my way through the food market for breakfast dinner and lunch.

If you see me out with the camera, don’t be afraid to say hello1
