One of my favorite indulgences is to explore new things – and that includes food. Trying something different can be intimidating, but when it is in the setting of Ireland’s food capital the result can only be sweet reward.
This past Saturday, Cork City held its first ever Cork Gourmet Trail with 14 restaurants participating in this landmark event. Many of our favorites took part and I certainly can let my arm be twisted if it involves eating for over five hours!
The pirate theme confused us at first, but having a theme kept the atmosphere light and festive – not stuffy. Some event-goers went all out wearing outfits that could fit right in on the Black Pearl herself. Landlubbers and seafarers alike were given a red felt pirate’s hat (with the Captain Morgan logo) to sport, which livened spirits and brought on many cheers from passing cars along the trail.
