This was the fifth Sheridan’s food festival, however it was my first. One wonders how living in Cork during those last 5 years and interested in food & cheese for the last 10 years, how I had never heard of the festival before. This year it was thanks to twitter I realized it was on. In fact twitter has now become the main instrument how I, like many people nowadays keep up to date with what’s going on in the world, but more importantly what’s going on with things I’m interested in, so if you are a food producer it’s imperative you are using twitter, to get your message out there.
The video above is a short summary of what I saw at the festival, it sticks mainly to producers I had not met before and was keen to meet. It was a truly great festival and well worth a visit only complaint is that it is only on once a year!
Also at the festival were many legends of food I had previously met, see the previously published articles below
