Foodies on Tour: Il Valentino Bakery & Cafe, Dublin
April 27, 2012 in IFBA Events
If you’re interested in Italian pastries, sandwiches and artisan breads, come join us at Il Valentino Bakery at the Grand Canal docks in Dublin at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 6th. Yes, it’s early – but we promise there will be amazing coffee!
We’ll sample some of Il Valentino’s food and meet owners Valentina and Owen Doorly (she’s Italian, he’s Irish). They have such a great approach to food – using all pure, fresh ingredients, no additives/preservatives and have a ton of authentic Italian pastries/cakes, sandwiches and breads at their bakery cafe. The bakery also produces bread for 40 Dublin restaurants, so the actual downstairs bakery never closes – it’s in operation 24 hours a day. We’ll get a tour and speak with the head baker.
Valentina has invited us bloggers for some food tasting and discussion that morning, complete with goody bags for everyone. She also would like us to take home and taste-test one of their latest creations (shhhh, it’s top secret!). It is not available yet, so we’d be having an exclusive first look/taste of the product.
There are 14 spots left, so please RSVP to no later than Wednesday, May 3rd. Hope to see you there!
