Taste of home on the menu for Dublin foodies
Over 30,000 foodies will gobble their way through some of Ireland's finest cuisine when the Taste of Dublin returns to the capital in June.
Festival organisers are planning a special homecoming for a number of chefs who are making waves abroad - among them Washington-based Cathal Armstrong, Gordon Ramsay's former head chef Anna Haugh, and US celebrity TV chef Stuart O'Keeffe.
But the event will also champion the new kids on the block of the Irish food scene with the Rising Star award.
Meanwhile, beer fans will get to taste a new tipple, specially brewed for the festival - The Taste of Dublin Strawberry Porter.
The four-day Taste of Dublin runs from June 16-19 at the Iveagh Gardens and will have extended opening hours this year until 10.30pm.
Tickets for the event cost €15 and are available at www.tasteofdublin.ie.
