Wexford Food Festival

I have a very soft spot for Wexford - I worked there for 7 years & most of our annual girls weekends take place in Wexford Town, so I was delighted to hear that it's now getting its very own Food Festival, following hot on the heels of Kilkenny & Waterford.

That's Phelim & Catherine

It's taking place over three days - from Friday May 20th to Sunday May 22nd - and is going to be a showcase  of the very best food producers and the amazing restaurants to be found in Wexford Town.  Celebrity (and very lovely) chefs Catherine Fulvio & Phelim Byrne will be headlining the Festival, holding cooking demonstrations of a wide variety of cuisines including Italian & Thai.  It's not all about the celebs though - the Festival also features an open air Food Producers Market, a Hog Roast and a Jazz Breakfast/Brunch to keep everybody entertained.

Some of my favourite Wexford food producers and sellers will be taking part, including Kate's Farm Shop (best fruit & veg for miles), Featherbed Farm (fabulous icecream),  Noirin's Bakehouse (gorgeous brown bread) and EP Doyle Butchers (incredible meat).
