Tomorrow I’ll be heading off to Kilkenny to attend the Night of 1000 Feasts. This very special night is part of the food festival Savour Kilkenny and will see homes, local community centres, restaurants and hotels all across the county gather friends and guests around a meal. The goal of the evening is to raise funds to transform an old school into a food education centre, training garden and community space in Kilkenny’s Town of Food, Thomastown.
The centre will help consolidate Ireland’s position as a food destination and attract cookery students from all over the country. I was super lucky to have been invited to the event and I literally cannot wait to discover Kilkenny and its the local delicacies but above all I’m looking forward to experiencing the Irish hospitality first hand. If you’d like to have a little peep into an Irish home and their cuisine, keep an eye open tomorrow for the hashtag #1000Feasts on social networks. I will be myself updating my twitter, facebook and instagram throughout the night (by the by I just created an instagram account, was I the last person on Earth to join?). So make sure you follow me as well as the bloggers present to the event to join in the fun and spread the good word about Irish food!
