The 11th annual Waterford Harvest Festival has been launched, and will be taking place this coming 6th – 8th September 2019.
This year’s programme of over 70 free and ticketed events features cooking demos, grow-it-yourself workshops, local food markets, child-friendly events and more. Over 40,000 visitors are expected to attend this year’s festival.
Key events include a multi-course pop-up lunch with chef Sham Hanifa (The Cottage Restaurant), a five course tasting menu cooked by Jenny Flynn (Faithlegg), Paula Hannigan (Cliff House Hotel), and Pamela Kelly (Farmgate Café), and cooking demos at the Dawn Meats Demo Tent with chef Edward Hayden.
Commenting on the launch of the programme, Festival Director Tommie Ryan said: “At Waterford Harvest Festival we are passionate about sustainably sourced food and reducing food waste. We are very excited to see Grow HQ Head Chef, JB Dubois, along with Chefs’ Manifesto ambassador Conor Spacey (FoodSpace) host a zero waste meal for 50 lucky diners to launch Grow HQ as the Irish hub for Chefs’ Manifesto – a global community of chefs facilitating change for a better food future.
“Walsh’s Bakehouse will team up with the fantastic and fun GastroGays to celebrate locally produced food serving a delectable dinner at The Parlour Vintage Tea Rooms. We are also delighted to introduce the unique Greenway Grazing food market along the Waterford Greenway on 6th September.”
