If you LOVE food and a delightful tipple, this is for you!

Get planning because next week is entirely dedicated to glorious food and drink with an entire network of restaurant, pubs, cafes, coffee shops, hotels and retailers coming together to help host various masterclasses, tastings and more.

The massive mix of events takes place from Monday October 15 to Sunday October 21 with a whole host of masterclasses, food experiences and family fun. So grab the gang and get your bib on.

To kick things off, Rachel Allen will be at The Church Bar and Restaurant on Monday to whip up a beautiful three-course meal along with some pick-me-up tea and coffee. (YAS please.) Tickets cost €50.

Chef Anna Haugh from Hells Kitchen (USA) will be at Pichet on Sunday October 21, from 5pm. For €65 per person, you’ll each nab a superb (and seasonal) six course tasting menu plus a thirst-quenching cocktail when you arrive.

If there’s an entire crew of you who love your grub and want to celebrate together this is a treat just for you lot. From Wednesday to Saturday, SOLE Seafood and Grill plus Fire Restaurant are catering to oodles of eager eaters, showcasing the very best of Irish food, both from sea and land. Tickets are limited to 12 people per time slot (€49.50 per person) so get in there quick.

Okay, so we know you’re an avid foodie but maybe you want to learn HOW to muster up the feast of dreams at home too. Get yourself to NoLita to make the perfect pizza and cocktails (divine combo right there), Cooks Academy to eat like you would in Hong Kong and Vice Coffee to try the biggest selection of coffee you’ve ever seen!

Don’t forget about Platform 61 on Sunday! Ava McKee plays host to a delightful (and yummy) brunch to help raise money for Down Syndrome Ireland’s EmployAbility Programme. Tickets cost €30 where you’ll receive a two-course brunch, a welcome cocktail and those ALL those vital funds head directly to Down Syndrome Ireland.

Kids (and adults) can carve their pumpkins at Asia Market where all the family can show off their creative side before taking home their very own made jack-o’-lanterns. Cooks Academy is playing host to a Baketacular afternoon filled with muffins and cookies (ideal for budding bakers) while Fade Street Social is where the kids can learn all about soft serve ice cream and gobble it all up after. (And yes, we’ll be doing the same too.)

So there’s no time (nor food) to waste everyone. Be sure to make this coming week EXTRA fun and spectacular, take in all Dublin Town Food and Drink Fest has to offer and find out about even more events here. And remember those tickets too.
