Tasting Joyce
Nov 2 @ 6:45 pm – 10:00 pm

Tasting Joyce

Join FEAST at the James Joyce Centre for a journey through the tastes and smells of Joyce’s Dublin. Accessing Joyce’s writing through the food and scents that frame them this 8 course ‘tasting’ menu will provide a range of food encounters that will reflect and unravel ideas in Joyce’s work.

The evening will include readings, artworks by Nuala Clooney and Kaye Winwood and a miscellany of key foods and ingredients referenced by Joyce.

Evening curated by Elisa Oliver in collaboration with the James Joyce Centre Dublin and Irish Food Trail.

The menu caters for vegetarians but sadly other specific dietary requirements cannot be accommodated.

FEAST is a series of online publications that explore our relationship with food as a social event, a marker of identity, a product of history and a commodity for trade. Eclectic and scatological in approach FEAST works closely with writers, artists, curators and chefs to reflect and comment on encounters and debates between the culinary, literary and visual arts. Placing a lens on the varied operation of food within our everyday FEAST further touches on wider cultural discourses around the body, sexuality, consumption, class and gender. FEAST is co edited by Elisa Oliver and Laura Mansfield

Feast is supported by the Liverpool Ireland Cultural Corridor, an initiative of Bluecoat and Liverpool City Council.
