Smugglers Creek is proud to participate in this year’s TasTY Food Tourism Project which was officially launched on 14th March by Mr Patsy Barr, Chairman of Donegal Town Credit Union. Seven leading hotels and restaurants in South Donegal have teamed-up with Abbey Vocational School TY Students. Together, they are set to cook-up a storm and have been challenged to produce a new “TASTY” food dish that features locally sourced ingredients. During the course of the project, each of the participating AVS TY students will get the opportunity to work alongside tourism industry professionals and learn “first-hand” about Food Origin and Sourcing, New Product Development, Culinary Arts, Food Packaging, Marketing, PR and Presentation Skills. The project will conclude with a Gala Presentation and Awards Evening hosted by Solis Lough Eske Castle on 16th May 2017. On the night, each of the seven TY teams will present their culinary work to an invited public audience to taste. Presentations will be awarded for the TASTY 2017 Winning Team!
