KINSALE GOURMET FESTIVAL PRESENTS:
A WEEKEND OF FINE FOOD AND WINE IN A FUN ATMOSPHERE
The 39th Kinsale Gourmet Festival takes place from 9-11 October 2015, promising a weekend of fine food and wine in a fun atmosphere. The Festival is hosted by Kinsale’s eleven Good Food Circle restaurants, which go to great lengths to display the talent of their chefs, and their beautifully presented food. The emphasis is on locally-sourced ingredients from sea and land, accompanied by carefully selected wines. The United States Ambassador to Ireland, Kevin O'Malley, will be a guest in Kinsale for Friday and Saturday's Good Food Circle events. Kinsale Gourmet Festival has many regular visitors from overseas, including the United States and Canada. There are still some tickets left for Friday evening’s opening event, a champagne reception, courtesy of Laurent Perrier, and a 5-course 'Taste of West Cork' dinner in a Good Food Circle restaurant of your choice. Meanwhile, everyone is welcome to the 'Cork Heat' of the All-Ireland Chowder Cook-Off on Friday afternoon, sponsored by Clóna.
Acton’s Hotel is the venue for the Cork Heat of the All-Ireland Chowder-Cook off at 3pm on Friday 9 October. The €5 admission fee includes the chance to win a €100 gift voucher from the Kinsale Good Food Circle, as well as a tasting sample of each chef's chowder, and free samples from specialised local brewers of craft beers and cider makers. Some outstanding chefs are expected to compete, including the very popular winner of last year's Cork Heat, The Cornstore. An entertaining afternoon is guaranteed, as the chefs display their skills with seafood, sharing their secret ingredients, as they compete to produce the tastiest chowder. The winning chef will represent Cork at the 6th All-Ireland Chowder Cook-O
