Clonakilty by Candlelight…and other good eating in Dublin

Clonakilty by Candlelight

It was an eating weekend in Dublin. Kristin of Dinner du Jour and I were there on Friday night to attend Clonakilty by Candlelight, a pop-up restaurant which ran for three nights last week and is continuing for another three from this Thursday. I don’t want to write too much about the whole event – one of the best parts of it, for me, was the fact that I didn’t know what was about to happen – but I’ll give you a few impressions of the night: sipping cava in the drawing room of a gracious Georgian house…fabulous meet and greet people…lots of eerie staring dolls…unusual uses of bacon…in short, great food, interesting people and an amazing atmosphere. Well worth dressing up for. There was also a competition element which the IFBA representatives didn’t shame themselves at. Just as well – the bagful of Clonakilty products that I went home with came in very handy for breakfast the next morning as the Husband and the Aussie had been out, researching, for the evening in Against the Grain and Messers Maguire.
