THIS THURSDAY sees the return of the West Waterford Festival of Food in Dungarvan where it’s all on offer with everything from talks to trails, baking to barbecues, film screenings, picnics (hopefully this weekend’s weather holds out for next weekend), cookery classes, demos, wine tastings and more.

The Tannery play host to a €60-a-head nose-to-tail nice of dining, recreating some of the elements of Fergus Henderson’s FergusStock. One of the big events of the weekend will be the Lunch With The Chefs in Lismore Castle on Sunday featuring some of the regions and country’s finest cheps with Garrett Byrne, Paul Flynn, Ross lewis, Martin Shanahan, Michael Quinn, Martijn Kajuiter, Richard Corrigan, Rachel Allen and Fergus & Margot Henderson all in conversation with lunch by Eunice Power after (it’s a pretty extensive list).
Between Thursday and Sunday then you’ve got talks on food writing with John McKenna, Raw Food with Jess Kean and Natasha Czopor and a whole host of tastings, demos and music to beat the band.
