I was just taking a look round the Cork Film Festival website when I came across their Slow Food on Film event. Slow Food Cork are behind this amalgamation of food and film which is in its third year. It always sounds amazing but, as I’m normally based in Dublin (when I’m not in New Zealand!), I haven’t yet managed to attend.
This year they’re showing five short films – from Cuba, Switzerland, France (x2) and Mexico – at the cosy Kino Cinema on Washington Street accompanied by a selection of foods from Cork producers. It’s a mouth watering line-up – Frank Hederman’s smoked fish, chorizo from Fingal Ferguson (both of whom got a great write up in the OFM recently), Desmond Cheese and Ardsallagh Goats Cheese from Bill Hogan and Jane Murphy respectively plus, just in case you’re still nibblish, a selection of patisserie and tapas.
The Slow Food evening is a veritable bargain at €10 and it takes place on Monday 10 October at 6.30pm in the Kino Cinema. The Cork Film Festival booking office (021 4272263) is now open at 15 Grand Parade.
