It’s not all about the Rebellion of 1916 this Easter as Galway’s food revolution continues at the 5th Galway Food Festival taking place from Thursday 24th to Monday 28th March.
Michelin Star chef Ross Lewis hosted the food tribes of Galway in Chapter One Restaurant this week as he launched an eclectic programme of events. A great range of eateries, food destinations and venues in County Galway are taking part in this year’s festival which is celebrating 100 years of Irish food.
Ross will be opening proceedings in the Galway Global Food village at the historic Spanish Arch with an inspiring food demonstration Tale of an Irish Food Story. He will also be taking part in a discussion panel on the past, present and future of Irish food in the Mick Lally theatre, Druid’s Lane alongside Wade Murphy, Gavin Mc Donagh, Michelle Kavanagh and Jess Murphy.
Also heading west for Easter is Roz Purcell, author of Natural Born Feeder, who’s inviting guests to join her for dinner at Brasserie on the Corner in Galway city on Good Friday. Roz has inspired the Brasserie’s chef Joe Flaherty with a 5 course tasting menu straight from her highly successful cookbook.
The Galway Food Festival is chaired by JP Mc Mahon of Michelin Star Restaurant Aniar and the popular Cava. Along with a hardworking committee of fellow Galway business operators and foodies, JP’s festival programme includes food demonstrations, open air artisan food markets, an inspiring talks programme, food tours and coastal foraging.
Galway Food Festival offers something for everyone from foodies, to families and professionals in the food sector with an abundance of free events over five days.
