Taste Waterford


Taste Waterford promotes food and drink producers along with the retail and hospitality sectors throughout the county. It provides the Waterford food community with a platform for networking and to showcase their products.  Today we have a collective from our Waterford food community along with some guests to chat about all things food.

These talks have been curated and will be presented by Richard Povey.
