The second Cork French Food & Wine Festival will returns to Cork again from
the today til Saturday.
The festival is the brainchild of Frenchwoman Isabelle Sheridan of the
famous ‘On the Pig’s Back’ food emporiums.
Unusually it’s not in the City, nor East Cork, nor West Cork. Instead it’s
in the suburbs: centered around St. Patrick’s Woollen Mills, Douglas.
The area will be transformed to include a tented village where a series of
master classes in French cooking from top chefs, exhibitions, wine
tastings, French musical interludes and family entertainment with a
distinctly French theme will be held.
The Festival is partly funded by “The Gathering Ireland 2013” and has been
supported by a number of top Cork restaurants who have joined the Cork
French Food & Wine Festival Trail by having French dishes available on
their menus throughout the weekend.
Tickets are available at On the Pig’s Back outlets in Cork city and Douglas
and details are on facebook.com/CorkFrenchFoodandWineFestival
