#Tastekilkenny, a collective of Kilkenny-based food producers and outlets, launched the next phase of its national and international marketing campaign at a launch event at Highbank Orchards & Distillery.
Helen Carroll of RTE’s Ear to the Ground officially launched the new #tastekilkenny website, www.tastekilkenny.ie, five new showcase videos featuring local chefs, a suite of images, bags and a set of producer postcards, all showcasing Kilkenny’s food offerings. Guests from Kilkenny and further afield were treated to a lunch of local food prepared by Ryeland House Cookery School. A welcome address by Cllr Matt Doran, Cathaoirleach was followed by an update on the #tastekilkenny initiative by Fiona Deegan of the Local Enterprise Office.
Kilkenny enjoys a growing reputation as a foodie destination with unrivalled artisan producers and cookery schools, cafés, gastro pubs and restaurants including two separate Michelin starred restaurants.
