Any Given Food Podcast #005 - The Big Grill Festival

Before the bank holiday weekend I had a chance to catch up with Andy Noonan, one of the festival producers behind this year’s Big Grill Festival taking place in Dublin from 15-17 August. You can also follow the festival on Twitter here.

In this short food podcast we take a look at the festival, what’s going to be happening across the three days and how it all came together.

Since the recording last Friday, there’s been a few additions to the festival lineup.

Adding to the smoke & fire on the weekend will be the Grill @ Donnybrook Fair, homemade sausage outfit Pig’s Tale, Bavarian lumpwood gang Fire Foods, California based rub & sauce specialists Red Dog foods & Frank’s hot sauce straight outta Louisiana. John Relihan’s team will be manning ‘Carnivore Corner’ cooking whole animals primitive style over open flames. At the complete other end of the spectrum the vegetarian options will include Diep Vietnamese salad, grill corn on the sheath, Kinara’s chick pea salad on naan & much more.

On the beer front, joining Rascals, Trouble Brewing & Eight Degrees will be Dan Kelly’s Cider and the Brewtonic International Bar feat Punk IPA, Dale’s Pale Ale, Orpen’s Cider. Camden Town Helles, Founder’s Raspberry Ale & many more. Wineonline.ie will host the wine bar with a top selection of white & red wine, prosecco as well as some Daiquiri wines & sherry. Soft drinks will be manned by John Lemon Lemonades, while the infamous 3FE will handle the coffee brewing.

There’s plenty more of these on the way and indeed if you’ve got a story to tell or fancy a chat about your food business or a food event you’re running, give me a shout today to set up a call.
