It was an electric atmosphere at the first "Taste of Dublin" in two years. Last weekend saw a return of food and drink lovers, and it was a celebration of everything that Ireland has to offer on the culinary range.
It was also a time to celebrate women in business and their networking abilities, the support they give each other and the success they see in their endeavours. Under the motto "Women & The Business of Food", Miena Rust from Miena's Nougat, Sharon Noonan, Fallon Moore from Blas na hEireann, Annie Dunne from The Heart of Grate Food and Birgitta Hedin-Curtin took to the stage in a panel discussion, and talked about the fantastic support and comradeship among fellow female entrepreneurs as well as the continued mentorship they might receive. They were also be discussing what more can be done to continue to bolster and propel female entrepreneurship in Ireland's food community.
