Celebrating Cultures, Promoting Integration
Step back in time with these retro dishes, part of the 100 years of Irish Food celebrations at next weekend’s Galway Food Festival.
Now in its fifth year, the festival will run across Galway city and county from March 24 to 28. To mark the centenary celebrations of the 1916 Rising, festival organisers have brought together 10 of the city’s top chefs and asked them to recreate a dish from a different decade of the past 100 years. The chefs have brought new approaches to the dishes, such as the 1980s Chicken Kiev recreated here by Brendan Keane, and the dessert pizza which features among Joe Flaherty’s ‘sweet moments’ of the 1990s.
Also on the festival menu are artisan produce markets, food tours of the city, county and Aran Islands, as well as demonstrations at the Festival Village at the Spanish Arch.
