Taste of Dublin, inspired by NEFF, today reveals the top five new experiences at Taste of Dublin 2022. The iconic food and cultural event is set to return to the stunning grounds of Dublin’s famous Iveagh Gardens from 16th-19th June. After almost two years, the event is back to full capacity boasting an eclectic mix of well-known Irish chefs, artisan food innovators and cultural food inspired experiences.
In addition to festival favourites such as the NEFF Taste Kitchen, Food for Thought and the Dyson Style Afternoon, organisers have introduced the below top five new experiences for 2022.
- Ready Steady Taste
Inspired by TV’s popular Ready, Steady Cook, this new event will see ‘I’m Grand Mam’ podcasters Kevin Twomey and PJ Kirby going head to head in a live cook-off on the NEFF Taste Kitchen Stage. The comedy duo will be guided by well-known TV chef Edward Hayden, who will be on hand to oversee the creation of their culinary masterpieces. A live audience will also be able to vote for their favourite dish using the same iconic Red Tomato and Green Pepper paddles as seen in the original hit show. This unmissable cook-off promises an explosive mix of culinary chaos, cheeky chit chat and lots of laughs!
