For some years Áine Maguire of The Idle Wall has run the famous Great Irish Food Quiz in Dublin, where gourmands from all over the country came to pit their wits against one another.
This year, the food nerd’s event of the year is taking place in Westport in aid of the 2016 Westport Food Festival and the Western Care Association on Thursday 26th May as a precursor to the main course over the weekend of June 24th to 26th.
Whether you consider yourself a connoisseur of all things culinary or just a lover of food then this is for you. There will be plenty of food related questions mixed in with some general knowledge and there will be an opportunity to put your taste buds, and not just your foodie knowledge, to the test.
There will also be an array of fantastic prizes on the night and a donation will be made to the Western Care Association from the proceeds of the night.
You don’t need to be an expert on Food and Wine to take part, so come along and join in the fun. It and it promises be a night to remember!
The 2016 Westport Food Festival has moved to June and will take place over the weekend of the 24th to the 26th of June. Check out www.westportfoodfestival.ie for more information and the full programme of events.
