Feeding the 5,000 Dublin Officially Launches


We had the press, we had curry, and it was good.

Feeding the 5,000 Dublin is go. We launched the event officially earlier today with a small get together for media folk and supporters. Maggie Lynch, of the Soul Food Company, joined us. She will also be there on the day of the event to give a cooking demonstration.

We also had The Daily Spud there to critique our curry. Needs more potatoes. Mostly rice today. Not to worry, we’ll be making a more potato-based curry on the day.

I will say, the curry is delicious! It went down really well with everyone so if you come along it’s definitely something to look forward to. I’m not even a huge curry fan, but I really enjoyed this recipe.

The Daily Spud posted a photo on instagram of the curry – take a look: http://instagram.com/p/Ru0KGPlrNQ/

The Church was the venue for the launch and it was really good of them to host us. They’ll also be helping out on the day, but I’m not recommending them because of that. The place is just great, top service, fantastic decor and friendly staff.

Here are a few photos from the launch, and we should have a video soon, and some of the press shots from a professional photographer – these are just a few I snapped myself.


And if you haven’t already, RSVP on facebook. Or just click ‘going’ on the event page, if you’re not feeling particularly fancy about it!
