St George’s Market in Belfast will offer a feast for all the senses this November as the hugely popular Twilight Market returns with its autumn event.
On November 12 and 13, the best of Northern Ireland’s artisan food producers, culinary wizards and boundary-pushing chefs will showcase a menu of mouthwatering dishes and foodie delicacies through cookery demos and stalls all lit up with a sprinkle of twinkle and set off by a melodic soundtrack performed by local music artists.
Craft stalls and activities will also feature at this season’s key diary date which is set to be the biggest and best yet as Taste the Island comes onboard as part of its eight-week Celebration of Food and Drink initiative.
BBC presenter and renowned foodie Kim Lenaghan will be putting the chefs through their paces in the demonstration kitchen. She will be welcoming Danny Millar from newly opened Stock Restaurant, Ian Orr from Browns Restaurant, Stephen Jeffers from Forestside Cookery School, Rob Curley from the Slemish Market Supper Club and Sal Hanvey of Natural Health NI – who will be dishing up vegan dishes for meat eaters.
Taste the Island autumn cocktail making demos (and the ever-popular samples) will be provided courtesy of the Cocktail Academy, and a new Shortcross Gin Bar will feature in the Twilight Lounge serving a bespoke Twilight cocktail.
Meanwhile the set list at the event will boast a line-up of top artists including Jackie Rainey who is fresh from touring with Sinead O’Connor, local duo Jukebox unplugged, and back by popular demand, the Motown Sensations will round off each night with their trademark energetic performance.
The market will take place on Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 November, running from 4pm – 11pm each day. Admission is free.
