Other contests include The Irish Cocktail Championships, the winner of which will get the chance to compete in The World Cocktail Championships in Tokyo next year, and The Chef Ireland Culinary Competitions, where 150 chefs will compete for the title. There will also be a competition to find the best contract caterer in Ireland.

The Euro-Toques Live Stage

Euro-Toques Ireland is a community of chefs and cooks who promote traditional culinary methods, strive for excellent culinary standards as chefs, and always work with local produce. These principles are evident in food service businesses in Ireland such as Toscana, one of the many Italian restaurants in Dublin. At the Euro-Toques Live stage, there will be demonstrations and master classes from chefs who are members of Euro-Toque Ireland.
