Taste Kerry is offering you the opportunity to taste some of the finest food and drink from local Kerry producers in Tralee during the Rose of Tralee celebrations from Saturday 20 to Sunday 21st August.
The main goal of the Apprentice Chef programme is to teach second level students the importance of cooking and eating fresh food, using locally-sourced products and to promote the food industry as a chosen career path. ‘Taste Kerry has supported the Apprentice Chef programme from day one’, says chef Mark Doe, one of its founders. ‘We see them as a vital partner when it comes to promoting the use of local produce. The Apprentice Chef has gone from strength to strength over the last 4 years and this had been made possible from the support we have had from Taste Kerry’.
Radio Kerry, your local radio station for County Kerry – broadcasting on 96-98FM – kindly ran a feature on the launch of the Taste Kerry website and book.
