Calling all dessert lovers (basically everyone on the planet)! This summer, Ireland is going to celebrate all things sweet with the country’s first ever national dessert festival.
Yes, you read that correctly. #DessertFSTVL is taking place from July 23rd to 29th 2018, with venues all over the country pulling out all the stops for this delicious festival.
Launching the festival is Cork’s Casanova Gelato, who have created a 13lb Jägermeister gelato sundae, made with tropical fruit punch and decorated with deep fried plums and mini bottles of the ultra-boozy digestif.
In addition, hundreds of venues across Ireland will be participating in the week-long festival, where they will showcase their most delicious and indulgent sweet specialities and hold chocolatey events for everyone to enjoy.
Each venue can decide how they want to celebrate, whether it’s organising pop-up events, tastings, workshops, “Man versus Food” challenges or simply creating their own unique dessert special to wow the public.
Speaking about the upcoming Dessert Festival, Ernest Cantillon, FSTVLR CEO and owner of Cork hotspots Electric and Sober Lane, and one of the founders of the award-winning Kinsale Gin said:
“#DessertFSTVL is the perfect opportunity for businesses across the country to take part in exciting national festival. Instead of the standard festival model which takes people away from food and drink venues, the festival will take place in their own premise which will drive footfall for them, as well as putting on a great event for the public. We already have some amazing businesses signed up for #DessertFSTVL and can’t wait for what might be our most delicious festival yet!”
