‘Best Dressed Oyster’ competition Finals - 1st February 2017

I am delighted to invite you to attend the UK’s first ever ‘Best Dressed Oyster’ competition, supported by Bord Bia.
We have been really impressed by the high standard of entries, which have come from as far afield as Cornwall and Ireland.
On Wednesday February 1st, you’ll have the chance to see the six finalists in both categories (Hot and Cold) demonstrate their skill and ingenuity to give the glorious Irish oyster the presentation it richly deserves.
We always knew there was something special in Ireland's seawater, and the oysters are delicious proof.
While they do the hard work, you’ll be able to watch over a glass or two of Champagne and meet fellow chefs, food writers and suppliers.
Our judges on the day will be celebrated chef, restaurateur and food writer Mark Hix, food critic/restaurant writer Joe Warwick and chef, television personality and food writer Clodagh McKenna; they will certainly have their work cut out to choose two winners!
I do hope you’ll be able to join us for what promises to be a fascinating and enjoyable afternoon.
Please RSVP to Leila Taleb by 6pm on 30th January: Leila@weareliquid.com.
