Taste of Dublin’s cult following of die-hard food lovers now have a second chance to lap up Ireland’s favourite food event as the festival prepares to launch City Fusion in the city tomorrow.

Taste City Fusion will see Dublin transform into feast for gourmands throughout the weekend offering bespoke dining experiences, masterclasses and food fairs pop up throughout the capital.

Following in the shadow of the annual Taste of Dublin, which celebrated its tenth anniversary last year, this weekend’s line-up is set to include tops chefs both Irish and internationally acclaimed including Kevin Thornton, Paul Kelly and Sunil Ghai.

Food revellers can expect to gather at the festival’s epicentre in Christchurch Cathedral but stellar dining experiences will sprawl across the city throughout the long weekend.

One such example is a medieval feast curated by award-winning young chef Mark Moriarty in the Cellar Restaurant of the Merrion Hotel.

This weekend’s festivities will see many of Dublin’s best know restaurants as well as new kids on the block join forces to exhibit some of the capital’s most moreish delights.

Michelin-award winning Patrick Guilbaud, Pichet and new Temple Bar offering Klaw will be among more than fifty restaurants taking part in the event.

The new festival is supported by CityJet, and organisers believe it will please those who are fans of the summer favourite Taste of Dublin.

CityJet’s Head of Marketing and Communications Martina McDermott said: “Serving major European capitals, with both Dublin and Cork routes, CityJet is ideally positioned to promote Ireland’s reputation for fine foods and hospitality.  In supporting Taste City Fusion, we are delighted to be able to introduce the delights of dining in Dublin to our regular executive travellers and the wider public, Martina McDermott said at the festival launch.
