Eat the Streets!
Bringing together families, farmers, urban growers and neighbourhoods to celebrate Dublin’s food!
2023 Festival Map
The Long Table Dinner is being held as part of Eat the Streets Festival. This 'Jeffersonian' dinner will be hosted in the beautiful newly-established production kitchen in the Spade Enterprise Centre on 15th September. The theme of the dinner is the Dublin Food Strategy ‘Eat the Streets’ and will feature many of the brilliant producers from the centre. Chef activist Seáneen Sullivan has created a four course feasting menu featuring produce from local farms, producers & allotments including local ginger beer from Zingibeer, bakes from No Messin', Brack from the Cupcake Bloke, sauces and dips from Zaria & Too Savage, and icecream from Dae.
The tradition of a Jeffersonian Dinner began at the home of Thomas Jefferson, the American statesman. Jefferson hosted all manner of thinkers and experts from a range of fields: arts, science, politics, philosophy (the influencers of the late 1800s!) to converse over a meal, mulling over weighty topics of the day. The idea was to listen, learn, and inspire meaningful dialogue around a particular topic as well as enjoy food and drink together.
The theme of this Jeffersonian dinner is the four pillars of the Dublin Food Strategy: Healthy Citizens, Healthy City; Growing Food at Home; Cooking & Creating; and Farm to Fork & Back. Each of the four courses of the dinner will contain a question sparking conversations about food waste, community growing, food sharing, innovation and the role of food in climate resilience.
Venue: SPADE Enterprise Centre, North King Street, Smithfield, Dublin 7, D07 CX22
