Week of events planned across Cork for Festival Cork’s inaugural Dessert Festival!
Festival Cork are people after my own heart. First they organised the hugely popular Burger Festival, then the Whiskey Festival and now 2017 is set to get another smashing festival: Cork’s Dessert Festival! I was lucky enough to get to try out two venues during the Burger Festival: Electric and Yellow Sub and had a fantastic and delicious time! I missed out on the Whiskey festival unfortunately but there’s no way I’ll be missing the dessert festival and I’m already looking forward to finding out which venues will participate and what they’ll have to offer to all the sweet toothed people in Ireland.
“ Cork Dessert Festival” running from June 26th to July 2nd – a festival showcasing the finest confections that Cork has to offer.
Ernest Cantillon and Eimear McCarthy festival organisers made the announcement this week:
“We are very fortunate to have an abundance of quality producers and food outlets in Cork. Following the huge success of our previous festivals and the overwhelming support from businesses and visitors alike it was an easy decision for us to launch our newest event Cork’s very own Dessert Festival”
Across the week a number of well known venues including Electric, Sober Lane and Cafe Velo will pull out all the stops to deliver tastings, workshops and events allowing businesses & producers to promote their dessert offerings in a fun and innovative manner.
“The festival promises to appeal to everyone from the sweet toothed dessert enthusiast to the master confectioner.” Ernest said, “We hope to showcase some of the finest desserts and allow for a few surprises along the way.”
The Dessert Festival is the first of it’s kind in Cork and if the previous events hosted by Festival Cork are anything to go by it promises to be a real treat.
