Halloween is around the corner and as we hit October, it turns out the month is packed with food events.
Closest to me and always a treat in the diary is the Savour Kilkenny Food Festival, extended out to a week this year, running 22-28 October.
The month stars with the Dingle festival and Blas na hÉireann with the Derry Slow Food Festival soon after.
Food on the Edge will dominate headlines late in the month as the creme of the food world descend on Galway for a two-day symposium.
