Indeed, Massachusetts has no shortage of great options for those seeking a taste of the Old Country. And the good news is that you will soon have a chance to indulge in a one-stop shopping, all-you-can-eat comparison of the offerings from roughly a dozen of these establishments. The 14th Annual Taste of Ireland event is coming up on Sunday, February 12th. For a flat entry fee of $15, attendees will have the opportunity to sample Irish dishes from a wide range of Cape Cod area restaurants. Whether you consider yourself a connoisseur of Irish specialty breads, seafood dishes, comfort food classics, soups, or desserts, you’ll have plenty to choose from.
The event, which starts at 1:00pm, is once again being hosted by the Cape Cod Irish Village in South Yarmouth. Participating restaurants have donated their efforts and all proceeds will benefit the Irish International Immigrant Center. The Center’s Ann Marie Cugno is quick to point out that while the food is the main attraction for most people, the event is really a celebration of Irish culture. “The afternoon will be packed,” she says, and will feature live Irish music, dancing, and a wide range of activities for kids. Raffle prizes include items donated by local businesses and art galleries, and gift certificates to local restaurants. “This is a brilliant occasion for families,” Cugno adds, and a “perfect way to get everyone out of the house on a winter Sunday.”
Irish food is in demand all over the world. Mark your calendar for February 12th and what promises to be a great afternoon of food, music, and craic.
