Improve Your Cooking Skills
Taste of Dublin isn't just about eating and drinking while you're there, it's also about picking up new skills that you can bring home with you and apply to your own cooking. In addition to the Taste Theatre, Electrolux are hosting more interactive and hands-on demonstrations at the Chefs Secrets tents, where you will be able to cook alongside your favourite chefs. These demonstrations will be hosted by Lynda Booth of the Dublin Cookery School
Something for Everyone

MyMilkman.ie will be organising family activities on Saturday and Sunday, and there will be live music on all four days, including the Whelan's Live Stage featuring Mundy and Brona Gallagher. It's a great day out for a family or a group of friends, and would make an excellent Father's Day outing.
