Taste of Dublin is proud to be working with non-profit organisation Our Table. Our Table was founded by activist Ellie Kisyombe and food writer Michelle Darmody, who met through a shared belief that a conversation needed to be started about Direct Provision, and the idea that food was a good way to get conversation started. Our Table aims to develop people’s existing culinary skills in a professional setting to give them the confidence, support, and practical experience necessary to start their own food businesses or gain employment in others. The social enterprise also aims to preserve and celebrate authentic recipes from diverse cultural heritages.
Taste of Dublin is lending our support to elevating Ellie and her team’s incredible story and continuous hard work which is in line with our values of supporting Irish businesses of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds. Find out more on ourtable.ie.
At The Festival
At Taste of Dublin 2021, Our Table will be showcasing and selling a selection of their products including worldwide inspired hot sauces, hummus and much more. Taste of Dublin believes that food has no borders beyond the edge of the plate, everything delicious has been improved by the people and ingredients who have arrived in our country and brought their own flavour.
