11th May 2015: Love Irish Food today, 11th of May 2015, launched a tasty online competition called the “Love Irish Food – Food Talent Award” that will run over the next three months until 5th of August 2015. Food lovers, talented cooks, food bloggers, Instagram stars, aspiring food stylists and photographers and are called to post a recipe and snap of their creation with Love Irish Food products.
