Gourmet Greystones

Now, why did I mention the hope of an Indian summer in yesterday's post?  The answer today was atypical of our Irish weather - haar on the coast and frequent showers for our visit to Gourmet Greystones, a celebration of the restaurants, cafes and gourmet food outlets in Greystones, Co Wicklow.

The programme consisted of cookery demonstrations from celebrity chefs outside Jeff Norman's Backstage@Bels restaurant, in the town centre, and food tastings at all the participating restaurants and, for the kids, Cookie Class at The Butlers's Pantry.  So, there was a big turnout for the event, but, we got slightly wet as we made our way down Church Road, sampling the gourmet delights and watching the demonstrations like the one above by chef Dinesh Chanda from Chakra by Jaipur Restaurant as he puts the finishing touches to his Spice Roasted Sea Bass.
