The very words 'food festival', combining quite possibly two of our absolute favourite things, is enough to make our mouths water.
And a Slow Food festival sounds even better. Oh boy. We're ready for it.
Slow in the City is the first annual festival of Slow Food Dublin in association with Bodytonic and with lots of participants already confirmed, this is one foodie and family experience not to be missed.
Comprising of talks, panel discussions, demos, tastings, workshops and a small market with Dublin producers, Slow in the City will "highlight the flourishing Dublin food scene collaborating with local producers, community gardens, restaurants and chefs all of who live and breathe the Slow Food ethos every day in their work."
And the participants already confirmed to take part and show off their grub has us verrrry excited indeed...
There will be food from the following:
- Andrew Douglas (Dublin Urban Farm)
- Padraic Óg Gallagher (Boxty House)
- Bretzel Bakery
- Olly's Farm (beekeepers & honey)
- Niall Sabongi ( Klaw and Poké)
- Dublin Cookie Co
- Sheridans Cheesemongers
- Camerino Bakery
- Chef Simon Lamont
- Piglet Wine Bar
The festival will be held in decommissioned church, Sophia's in D8, and a café on site will also serve food to attendees manned by esteemed guest chefs who will be preparing dishes using rescued food waste from charity, Food Cloud.
Slow Food Dublin also aims to support and highlight Dublin 8 community projects like Sophia’s - a charity offering residential care for homeless people in Dublin.
Slow in the City takes place on Sunday, October 29th from 11am-6pm.
See ya there?
