    Food Cravings

    Now… our food cravings can be a very powerful force indeed… When you’re in the grip of a food craving, you can’t think of anything else. Next week, a food conference in Dublin is taking a close look at craving… Dr. Máirtín Mac Con Iomaire is Chair of the Dublin Gastronomy Symposium.

    The Dublin Gastronomy Symposium is a biennial international event organised in partnership between the School of Culinary Arts and Food Technology in DIT and the Centre for Franco-Irish Studies in IT Tallaght. It is sponsored by Fáilte Ireland and the focus is to bring over a hundred delegates together every two years who are passionate about food to discuss all things gastronomic around a certain theme.  www.arrow.dit.ie/dgs for further information. A book is now available from the previous symposium called Tickling the Palate: Gastronomy in Irish Literature and Culture (Peter Lang 2014).
