To help launch #DessertFSTVL, Ireland’s first ever national dessert festival, Cork’s Casanova Gelato created a 13lb Jägermeister gelato sundae.
The sundae was made with tropical fruit punch and decorated with deep fried plums and mini bottles of the famous, boozy digestif.
#DessertFSTVL runs from July 23rd to 29th 2018 and hundreds of venues across Ireland, from bars, restaurants and cafés to doughnut shops, creperies and ice cream parlours will be participating in the week long festival.
Each venue can decide how they want to celebrate their dessert - by organising pop-up events, tastings, workshops, “Man versus Food” challenges or simply creating their own unique dessert special to wow the public.
The dessert festival is run by FSTVLR, which connects festival lovers with businesses looking to host food and drink events in their own premises. The FSTVLR team run themed festivals across Ireland, including BurgerFest, Oktoberfest Beag and FEAST.
Participation is €95 per venue and each will receive a full digital POS Pack, an opportunity for their business’ dessert special to be featured on the FSTVLR website, participation in a promotional campaign and the opportunity to raise the profile their business to a target audience.
Ernest Cantillon, FSTVLR CEO and owner of Cork hotspots Electric and Sober Lane, and one of the founders of Kinsale Gin, said: “#DessertFSTVL is the perfect opportunity for businesses across the country to take part in an exciting national festival. Instead of the standard festival model which takes people away from food and drink venues, the festival will take place in their own premise which will drive footfall for them, as well as putting on a great event for the public.”
