Dead Centre Brewing in Custume Place, Athlone, will be the venue for a forthcoming food and drink experience workshop to which local businesses are invited.
The workshop which will inform those present on how they can partake in a new initiative, ‘Taste the Island–a celebration of Ireland’s food and drink’, takes place on Tuesday, June 11, from 9.30am to 2pm.
The new initiative has been developed in response to the growing global interest in food and drink by Fáilte Ireland, in collaboration with Tourism Ireland, Tourism Northern Ireland and a range of stakeholders.
‘Taste the Island’ will showcase Ireland’s world-class food and drink culture across the island of Ireland from September to November to provide visitors with access to authentic food and drink experiences, high quality local ingredients and world class Irish food and drink produce. The extensive programme running over three months will seek to create an awareness and renewed appreciation at home and abroad of the strength and richness of Ireland’s cuisine today.
The workshops have been organised for the industry to learn more and provide them with the opportunity to shape the development of a programme of events and experiences for this year.
