Those who love Irish food will be happy to know that Good Food Ireland is returning to the Web Summit to take part in their annual Food Summit. With Web Summit taking place in Lisbon next year in November 2016, this could be the last chance for most speakers, entrepreneurs, investors, media and general attendees to taste some of the finest Irish artisan food. Then again the Web Summit could return to Dublin at some point in the future. Here’s hoping Dublin can convince Paddy Cosgrave, the co-founder of Web Summit, to bring back the Web Summit to Dublin in 2017.
Good Food Ireland are Ireland’s premium food experience. The group consists of a collection of leading restaurants, hotels, cookery schools, shops, pubs, cafes and food producers passionately committed to local Irish food, highlighting Ireland’s food culture. Founded by Margaret Jeffares in November 2006 it is a unique trusted guarantee for good food holidays, eating out, learning to cook or for buying the very best Irish food produce.
I for one agree with their above mission statement. After attending the Food Summit at the Web Summit last year, I got to try some of the finest locally produced Irish food thanks to Good Food Ireland. They have a knack for sourcing the best locally produced ingredients, food and of course some of the best talented chefs in Ireland. What better way to introduce foreign entrepreneurs, investors, guest speakers,the media and general attendees to Irish food than by providing their meals from Good Food Ireland. Who can say no to delicious hand made ice cream or any dessert for that matter?
For anyone who is vegetarian or vegan, Good Food Ireland specialises in sourcing vegan/vegetarian friendly food. At the Food Summit make sure to find and try baked goods by ‘The Foods of Athenry.’ They specialise in baking for restricted diets, so if you’re vegan or require something that’s gluten or dairy free then you’ll want to check them out.
