Meet Participating Chefs, Farmers, Fishermen and Food & Drink Producers at touRRoir18
On Monday April 23rd and Tuesday April 24th, Food, Tourism and Culture collide at touRRoir18, a cross sectorial global forum on the interconnection of these three major sectors. Brought to you by Good Food Ireland in partnership with The Irish Times, touRRoir will be hosted in the National University of Ireland Galway to coincide with Galway’s designation as European Region of Gastronomy.
Closing the touRRoir18 forum, the Networking Showcase Dinner: Food, Tourism & Culture IRELAND in Action event will immerse you in Ireland's longstanding food culture. Chefs will cook right in front of you, while you will also get the opportunity to chat with food producers, farmers and fishermen who will tell you their stories while you sample their food produce created wholly by themselves or with ingredients conscientiously and ethically sourced from local suppliers.
You will be invited to graze about this informal buffet style dining space mingling with other delegates as you sample on choice selections of Irish produce from all over the island of Ireland.
We like to think that there is something to suit all tastes, from award winning craft distillers who will happily serve up their tempting concoctions to a mouthwatering food showcase that will feature Irish cheesemakers to chocolatiers, you will no doubt finish off the day with a greater understanding of the commitment and dedication that goes into producing top quality Irish food. Get up close and personal with these food idols at this once off Good Food Ireland culinary celebration.
The cultural extravaganza will also include a fantastic Fleadh or Traditional Irish Concert featuring top class Irish Instrumentalists who will play jigs and reels well into the evening while you get your fill of the excellent offering of delectable Irish food being showcased.
