It's back.....the food nerd's event of the year. Once again all our proceeds will go directly to Down Syndrome Ireland. Once again, it will be a night of foodie fun and wicked competition. Prizes are, as always, astounding; Myles McWeeney returns as our Quiz Master; Yet again, the wine questions will stump most of you and you’d better brush up on your spices…..once again, this is the gourmet gathering not to be missed.

This year the wine tasting section of the quiz is courtesy of BLACK PIG (Donnybrook). Check them out at and brush up on your wines!!

To Book Your Table.
1) Simply click on the tab 'SPONSOR ME NOW' on the left, enter €100.00 for your table.
