4 events for… Foodies on a health kick

From a seafood festival in Connemara to a vegan feast in Dublin city.

AFTER LAST WEEKEND’S four-day chocolate-and-pints blowout, you might feel like a bit of a detox. Or maybe the spring air has you hankering for some colourful, healthy fare.

Whatever the case may be, here are four deadly events for rejuvenating the body and mind this weekend.

Brother Hubbard’s Long Table Vegan Evening

Where: Brother Hubbard North, Dublin 7

When: Sat April 7

Yoga Dublin and Brother Hubbard have teamed up to create a long-table foodie experience for vegans and non-vegans alike. Sit around one table and share platters of vegan Middle Eastern food with new and old friends. Brother Hubbard has been running vegan nights for the last year or so, with new dishes added every time.

Belfast Vegan Festival

Where: Science Gallery, Dublin 2

When: Ongoing until June 3rd

Dublin Science Gallery serves up thought-provoking exhibitions several times a year. FAKE runs until the beginning of June, and if you’re ready to give some critical thought to the food choices you make, it’s worth a look.

Among the exhibitions is Faux Foodmongers, a “deli” which serves up – and makes you think hard about – fake food, including vegan cheese and “seafood” sticks.
