A brief history of the festival

This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the festival. It was first conceived by Waterford City itself with the help of County Council, whose aim has always been the one of promoting local chefs and celebrate the value of food. Throughout this decade, the Festival has been supported by a lot of local businesses.
