Sherry, once the drink of Christmas, is undergoing quite a revival.

And expert Liam Cabot reckons we can even pair it with fish and chips.

Cabot will lead a sherry and fish and chip tasting at Sash restaurant in No.1 Pery Square, as part of Limerick’s Culture and Chips festival next week.

The quirky food festival will also hold the World Chip Championship.

“The competition is open to everyone from professional chippers to amateur experts,” organisers say.

Judges will select three finalists to take part in a cook off at Culture & Chips 2017 on Saturday, October 14 for the title of World Chip Champion.

While the main event takes place in The Crescent, O’Connell St a number of fringe events will take place on Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Sunday 15th October.

This year’s theme for the quirky food festival, which celebrates the food heritage and culture of the city, is Eat in the City.
