Last week I won the amazing opportunity not only to attend Taste of Dublin for free but also to have a 3 course meal prepared for me by none other than Irish chef Neven Maguire.

Being pregnant anything involving food is my dream prize so needless to say I was pretty excited.

The prize was for 2 people so myself and my husband went on a long overdue date night to have possibly the best dinner in Ireland.

Starter : Grilled Prawns

All of the food was amazing but my personal favourite were the grilled prawns. I would never usually order prawns if I went to a restaurant as my past experience with ordering them hasn’t been great but Neven Maguire’s prawns may have just turned me around. I would definately order them again if I visited his restaurant, MacNean House.

The demonstration Neven gave of cooking the food was also very valuable not just in cooking tips but also in tips on where to buy the best Irish ingredients.

We were also presented with Neven’s cookbook so that we can have a go ourselves cooking some of his delicious dishes.

Special thanks to Neven Maguire, his staff, Caitriona Redmond and Flogas for the fantastic prize.
