All Ireland Tapas Championships 2020

Can you distil your skills & knowledge of local food, flavours & textures into a savoury tapas dish of 3 bites and become champion of Ireland at the All Ireland Tapas Championship 2020 in Tralee Co. Kerry in April?

The winner  of this competition will receive an all expenses paid trip to the World Tapas Championship in Valladolid Spain 2020 and most importantly, be part of Team Ireland to compete against the world’s top chefs. Bringing home the title of  World Champion.

The All Ireland Tapas Championship is the brainchild of three Irish Chefs Rob Curley Slemish Market Supper Club , Ballymena Co. Antrim (Irish Tapas Champion 2018) , Gorka Arrieta Sua Basque Fusion , Co. Kerry and John Harty , Taste Kerry , Tralee Co. Kerry.

It was from a shared love and passion for Irish and Spanish tapas culture that the championships were born. The vision for the All Ireland Tapas Championship, a championship open to all chefs on the island of Ireland, of a competition celebrating the skill and passion of chefs and a festival of Spanish food culture hosted in Tralee Co. Kerry, needed to be realised.  Last year’s winner was  Chef Denis Byrne from Kilcar in Donegal.
