Chef Kevin Dundon Showcases Ireland's Food And Drink Experiences In Canada

Celebrity chef and TV personality Kevin Dundon is showcasing Ireland's food and drink experiences in Canada this week after being invited by Tourism Ireland to take part in a programme of culinary and media events in Toronto.

The programme includes appearances on Canadian television during which Dundon will highlight modern Irish cuisine, and interviews with influential Canadian food and travel journalists.

"Something Of A Revolution"

Tourism Ireland's manager for Canada, Dana Welch, commented, "Gastronomy and the extremely high quality of Irish produce is one of the key themes being promoted by Tourism Ireland, so we're delighted to work with Kevin Dundon this week, helping us to shine a spotlight on our superb culinary experience. Our message is that Ireland's food scene has undergone something of a revolution in recent years. Artisan producers and world-class chefs like Kevin Dundon have been getting creative with our produce, using fresh local ingredients to create incredible flavours.

"Food and drink are vital elements of today's holiday experience, and our promotions are raising awareness of Ireland's rich food culture. Tourism Ireland is encouraging prospective visitors to come and experience our award-winning local produce, dine in our excellent restaurants, visit our fantastic distilleries and breweries, or perhaps take in a food trail or festival. We're telling Canadian 'foodies' that there has never been a more exciting time to come and discover the food scene in Ireland."
