The foodies are gathering!

This June 5th and 6th, DIT Cathal Brugha St will play host to the inaugural Dublin Gastonomy Symposium, which will have the theme "Gastronomy: past, present and future."

Mairtin Mac Con Iomaire, Chair of the Symposium organising committee has said that "The study of gastronomy is uniquely multidisciplinary encompassing the arts, humanities, and the natural and social sciences, and all are welcome to attend this symposium to dine, debate and interact with likeminded foodies."

Keynote speaker will be Darra Goldstein, editor in Chief of the journal Gastronomica.

This looks set to be both a convivial and a scholarly occasion!
