So, my winning streak continued last week, when I was lucky enough to win two tickets to “Taste of Christmas” from The Irish Food Bloggers Association recent Give-away. Babs and I headed off on the train for our day out in the City.
After walking from Connolly Train Station, we found ourselves at the Convention Centre in Dublin, and headed in to sample all that was on offer.
While browsing around just to get our bearings, an alarm was activated, and an announcement to “Evacuate the Building” was triggered. Thankfully, after a few minutes, what ever drama had ensued, the order for staff to “Stand Down” was given, as it had been a false alarm, and normal service resumed!
Exhibitors were offering goods and foods, from Poultry to Chocolate, hampers, wines, cakes and crafts, and surprisingly, some totally non-food related items. As it was billed as “Taste of Christmas”, I did expect there to be mainly food producers exhibiting, and, perhaps, more than were actually at the show.
I spoke to some of the producers and asked them if their products were available to purchase where I live. Disappointingly, each time, the answer was no. Still, some of the products are available online, so that will have to suffice for the moment.
