On May 2nd, a group of 3rd year Culinary students from Dublin Institute of Technology will once again put their money where their mouths are. The continuing theme of the meal is "Eat Only Irish", adhering to the concepts of seasonality, origin and the tenets of the Slow Food Movement "Good, Clean, Fair".
Following an inaugural event in March, the students have taken the lessons learned on board, and promise an even better event in May. An eight course tasting menu is on offer at the Green Room Restaurant, DIT Cathal Brugha Street for a mere €20 per head. It's incredible value, as well as offering a chance to support some passionate and inspired young chefs.
For more information, or to book seats (served at 6pm), please contact Darryl via Twitter (@CaptainSlowFA) or via email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can follow the event via the Twitter hashtag #EatOnlyIrish. A sneak peek at the menu is given below to help whet your appetite.
