It’s that time of year again: school’s out, rules and routines are relaxed, and we’re all feeling sunnier and more playful than usual! The Dublin weather may not be as reliable as the Spanish costas and, yes, we have to be prepared to uproot our picnics and barbeques at the drop of a hat to run for shelter from a sudden summer downpour... but, oh, when those clouds part and the sun peeks through! Let’s hope there’s lots of that this summer! And to all of you lovely foodie friends who are getting ready to take off on your summer travels: safe, happy and tasty journeys, folks! We’ll catch you on the flip side.
What a championship, guys! Needless to say, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it over here in the foodFiesta family abode! Each match was the perfect excuse for a little house party with tasty Spanish nibbles and a few scoops. Thanks to our amazing Irish, Spanish, Italian, Croatian and Portuguese friends for coming over and cheering your teams on with us! And thanks, team España, it was a blast!

Friends, we’ve been bitten by the Facebook bug! We’re so excited to be interacting with you and your friends on this hopping little medium that we’ve decided to extend our Facebook giveaway a little longer.
We’re on a mission to reach 100 LIKES!! Will you help us to spread the word? Share our link on your wall and we’ll give you an extra entry in the draw. Plus! We’re adding ANOTHER PRIZE: a 34cm polished steel paella pan for you to rustle up your own yummy Spanish rice creations at home using the delicious foodFiesta recipes!
So, first prize is a pair of cooking workshop vouchers and second prize is a shiny new paella pan from our upcoming online store. See you on facebook, come on down!
Take note: we’ve switched the theme of our 18th July workshop to “Marisco Fiesta” (fish and seafood night), as opposed to the previously advertised “Sopas & Cremas” (soups, stews and creams). We’ll be rescheduling the soups and stews night to the more suitable autumn climes. Fish and seafood is one of our most popular themes, so get booking... and stay tuned for menu details here on the blog shortly!
If you’ve already been to one of our workshops or private foodie parties, you know that good food, fun learning and a happy, friendly atmosphere are guaranteed!
We’re available throughout the month of July for private parties, cooking workshops, catering gigs, etc.
Why not break up your summer with a little Spanish foodfest? We can help you make it happen --at your place or ours-- so, get booking!
P.S. Remember this from last week? Well, friends, we had a ball! My little red hot chili pepper of a son was grinning from ear to ear the whole way through the concert, and so was I! We almost lost our voices from all the singing. What a show!
Hey, and see that expectant couple posing with Liam in the top right photo below? We couldn't resist telling them that their baby was destined to be a future RHCP fan, just like Liam turned out to be. Because another ten years from now?... you never know!
