Launched this year and created by Suzanne Campbell and Paul O’ Connor, Irish Food Writing Awards celebrate excellence in writing, broadcasting and social media on Irish food and drink. BRÚ is delighted to be sponsoring the Beer Writing Award category.
There are so many talented writers who help spread the word about our fantastic brewing industry and we’re so appreciative of every review, blog post and feature focused on Irish beers and breweries.
The Irish Food Writing Awards: The Concept
The inspiration behind the Irish Food Writing Awards is described below:
“Ireland has a strong writing culture and an emerging food culture. Our countryside grows some of the best fresh ingredients produced worldwide. Our chefs craft these ingredients into modern Irish cuisine; from seaweed to rhubarb, our traditional foods are the stars of exciting restaurant dishes.
Our food producers create products made with love and a passion for quality. Our journalists and writers describe and photograph our food in newspapers, magazines, online and in cookbooks. This year we plan to bring these magical elements together in the first Irish Food Writing Awards.”
