Sligo Food Trail launches Taste of Spring Feast

The chefs involved are a truly outstandingly talented group.

Following the outstanding success of the sell out Harvest Feast last October, Sligo Food Trail is delighted to announce the “Taste of Spring Feast” which takes place on Friday 20th April 2018. This gastronomic extravaganza is a joint effort from Sligo’s top chefs and is a treat for the taste buds.

The banquet will take place at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa and tickets are strictly limited.

The combination of award winning chefs and the best of local produce is a real winner. Anyone lucky enough to be at the Harvest Feast was bowled over by the incredibly high standard of dishes presented. And those dishes just kept on coming – nine delicious courses, competing for attention. The thunderous applause and standing ovation for the chefs involved was well deserved.

“It was such a wonderful experience for everyone involved, we just had to do it again”, said Anthony Gray, Chairman of Sligo Food Trail, “The chefs love the unusual experience of working together and their natural competitive element means each one raises their game even higher”.

The Taste of Spring Feast isn’t just an outstanding dining experience; it is a gala event firmly fixed on the Sligo social calendar. From the Oyster, Craft Beer and Drinks reception at the beginning of the evening to the live music throughout, this is a glittering affair in every way.
