Food Entries Pour Into Dingle

 Things are pretty crazy here with the amazing logistical challenge that is the Blas na hÉireann National Irish Food Awards.

We have 720 food entries that have to be categoriesed, labeled, divided up into samples and backup samples and then stored.

The whole thing would be so much harder without the amazing work of UCC’s Food Department, who have sent a team of professors, post-docs, and students. They are preparing the samples (photo right)and will oversee the judging. 

Tomorrow the 40 judges start to arrive, and there will be runs to the airport and lots of work making sure they are fed and find their lodgings.  And the food festival kicks off! It’s so exciting!

This experience has given me a real appreciation of Mr. Mulley and and what it must take to put on the blog and web awards.

Anyway, best of luck to all the entrants, and I hope to see many of your around this weekend!
