Loyal readers.... Just a quick note to whet your appetite. Joel and I are headed to Ireland to attend the 39th Annual Kinsale Gourmet Festival.

Kinsale, located in Cork County in the southwest of the country is known as the Foodie mecca of Ireland and we're excited about exploring it and reporting back to you on what we find. 

Later in our trip, we'll be taking a cooking class at the Dublin Cookery School , specifically from Barry Liscombe, chef at Harte's of Kildare. 

Suffice it to say, we're excited about our little adventure and looking forward to sharing stories with you when we return. Feel free to follow me on Twitter for up-to-the-minute Irish Culinary Adventure news.
