For those of you living in Dublin, here are a couple of upcoming free food events that you might enjoy.
For those of your living or working around Ballsbridge, the Aviva Stadium meetings and events team are giving out free pancakes from their chefs from 7.30 - 9.30am outside the statdium. So if you fancy a free pancake for breakfast make sure you swing by and get one of their freshly cooked pancakes with your choice from a range of fillings, including chocolate, syrup, and lemon zest. Must see if I'm awake early enough to stop by myself.
The following Tuesday, 15th March, when you'll be sick of pancakes, why not get into the mood for St Patrick's Day by heading over to L Mulligan Grocer for their Irish Coffee Blind tasting?
The staff there are on a mission to rescue the noble Irish Coffee from its dreary status of 1980s carvery chasing tipple. Throughout the months of February and March they have been been serving Irish coffees made with hand roasted coffee supplied by three different roasteries, Ariosa, Hasbean (supplied and chosen by 3FE) and Bailie's in conjunction with Coffee Angel.
These coffees were chosen by the roasteries to complement the selected whiskey, Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey, distilled by Ireland's only Irish owned distillery Cooley. Finally, the cream is being supplied by Glenisk, a collective passionate about Irish organic dairy farming.
The idea behind this is to create an Irish Coffee that is truly a product of Ireland, using the best Irish produce. Booking is essential if you are interested in attending the blind tasting please email irishcoffee[at]lmulligangrocer.com
