The three-day event will see Ireland’s top chefs demonstrating their skills and sharing top tips on the Chef’s Stage.

FOOD&WINE Magazine Wine editor Raymond Blake will be on hand to talk the audience through wine and food pairings. Editor of FOOD&WINE Magazine, Ross Golden Bannon says, “Unlike other imitators, the FOOD&WINE Magazine Christmas Show does not feel the need to ship in foreign cooks to teach us how to make great food, we’re backing Irish based chefs and producers all the way.”
