Win Tickets for Taste of Christmas

It's competition time yet again on the blog and I must say that I'm terribly excited about this one. The team who are working hard behind the scenes of Taste of Christmas, have made two tickets available for me to give to one of my blog followers. The tickets are for Sunday 27th November at 12m/d. The tickets are valued at €24.50 each plus booking fee {and if you have children, under 12's go free to the event}.
Tickets include complimentary mouth-watering mince pies on arrival, full access to the event featuring the chance to browse artisan exhibitors, find gifting ideas, indulge in foodie features, enjoy cooking demonstrations from Ireland’s finest chefs plus take a seat at the MasterChef Ireland Live Theatre Show and receive a Restaurant Loyalty Card. The Restaurant Loyalty Card is a new addition to Taste of Christmas this year, thrilling customers with €100 worth of discounts to enjoy in selected Taste restaurants from January to April next year.  In addition, all Florin booklets include a fantastic €20 off your Christmas shopping at Superquinn.  

Here I am with Edward Hayden at Taste of Dublin, last June.

I always enjoy Taste of Dublin, each summer, and naturally it was extra special for me this year as I won a competition on TV3 and got the amazing opportunity to do a live cookery demonstration with the lovely Edward Hayden. I haven't before had the chance to make my way to Taste of Christmas but that will change this year! The weather won't cause any problems either as the festivals is all indoors at The Convention Center in Dublin. Edward Hayden, Catherine Fulvio and Oliver Dunne will be there sharing their recipes and tips for the perfect Christmas. This year they will be joined by a new attraction, Masterchef Live where Dylan and Nick will host an interactive cooking experience with the audience. Some of the Masterchef contestants will also be donning their aprons and demonstrating a few dishes. There are a large list of food & drink exhibitors that will be there to tempt you into buying lots of foodie presents this Christmas. A full list of can be viewed here. With the Taste tradition there will be some of Dublins top restaurants there to offer you a taste of their menu for a fraction of the price. Taste of Christmas promises to be a fantastic event with so much happening under the one roof. I'm really looking forward to it!
