Enjoying the FoodHall extravaganza in Kinlough

Melvin Gaels Gaelic4 Mothers & Others hosted a foodhall extravaganza in Kinlough Community Centre on Friday April 5.

Donegal chef and Irish food blogger Zack Gallagher facilitated this event in conjunction with Kenny Maguire Cookery demonstrations and Flogas. Glenade celebrity Dave Duke of iRadio fame ably assisted the proceedings.

The evening culminated in a highly entertaining pizza making competition between Dave Duke and local Italian chef Fabiano. We are not at liberty to say who won!
