Our first IMAGE Meet the Real Women event in Fallon & Byrne provided IMAGE readers the chance to get to know healthy chef Dorcas Barry, food stylist Sharon Hearne Smith, Fallon & Byrne's Fiona McHugh, Kate Saul of Cocoa Atelier, Wilde & Green's Denise Begley and Carmel O'Callaghan, and Pure Food's Ruth and Mary Hussey. After the ladies shared their stories and answered questions from the floor, each took to a standing table for a speed dating-inspired chat. Guests mingled while feasting on crudit's, relishes, hummus and tapenade as well as canap's and double chocolate mousse pots, all washed down with sparkling prosecco from Irish company So Prosecco. Attendees left clutching generous IMAGE totes bursting with French Paradox and Wilde & Green vouchers, Cocoa Atelier chocolates, and copies of IMAGE. A delicious and super evening for all. Next up Meet the Stars of the Art World in May.
