'Taste of Place' to enhance attraction food

 Fáilte Ireland, is  rolling out a new food innovation programme ‘Taste of Place’ for seven of Ireland’s Ancient East Visitor Attractions to  enhance the food and drink on offer.  In

Sourcing ingredients from local Irish suppliers.
Linking elements of the food offering to the wider destination brands.
 Participating attractions (Wicklow Gaol; Hook Lighthouse; Jameson Experience; Bru Na Boinne; House of Waterford Crystal; and Newbridge Silverware) who commit to the changes outlined in the charter will complete an intensive three day programme with cookery demonstrations from reknowned local chef Paul Flynn, in the Tannery Cookery School, Waterford.
