Dingle Food and Wine Festival, 2009

One of the things that has made the Dingle Food and Wine Festival (October 2nd-4th) such a standout over the last years has been the taste trails – pairing shops and cafes with food producers to offer food beyond the usual places – restaurants and supermarkets – and put it all around the town. It’s worked a treat – fun and unexpected.

I’ve just received the list of this year’s taste trail, and it’s impressive!
