TV chef Martin Shanahan will be one of the star hosts at the first annual Taste of Kildare festival which takes place on Sunday August 19.
Shanahan will be joined by other leading Irish chefs, including Thomas Haughton and Ross Lewis, in a series of cookery demonstrations celebrating the best that the county’s great restaurants and food producers and suppliers have to offer.
The festival will be held in the amazing surroundings of the Walled Garden at the K Club, Straffan.
