You still might not have got around to reading Ulysses but this November 2nd you can access James Joyce’s writing in the most delicious of ways, through food. Join FEAST at the James Joyce Centre for an eight course tasting menu that will take you on a journey through the tastes and smells of Joyce’s Dublin.
The James Joyce Centre Dublin, on North Great George’s Street, Dublin 1, will host the event which will take place November 2nd from 6.45pm – 9.45pm.
Catering the evening is chef Padraic Og Gallagher’s Boxty House, a restaurant renowned for their unique take on Irish cuisine and signature Boxty.
The foods, scents and ingredients referenced by Joyce throughout his works will provide inspiration for the menu, and guests can also look forward to readings, and artworks by Nuala Clooney and Kaye Winwood.
The evening is curated by Elisa Oliver, co editor of FEAST, in collaboration with the James Joyce Centre Dublin and Irish Food Trail.
FEAST is a series of online publications that explore our relationship with food as a social event, a marker of identity, a product of history and a commodity for trade.
There are two tiers of ticket prices, €60 for an eight course meal with paired wines, and €45 without. Tickets can be bought HERE.
