With a week to go here are some of the speakers who will be at Ireland’s second foodcamp – Friday 15th April – part of the Waterford Festival of Food. A number of demo’s there together with a number of talks which I hope are not scheduled against mine because I really want to see them.
If you have a food related topic you are passionate about please put yourself on the list – this is about sharing those passions, experience and ideas in an open way. Just send an email to Claire: firstname.lastname@example.org
