IRELAND'S first ever national dessert festival will take place this month and one Cork ice-cream parlour has come up with a whopping 13lb Jägermeister gelato sundae.
The dessert festival, using the Twitter hashtag #DessertFSTVL, will take place from July 23 to 29 across the country.
To launch the festival Cork’s Casanova Gelato created a 13lb Jägermeister gelato sundae, made with tropical fruit punch and decorated with deep fried plums and mini bottles of the ultra-boozy digestif.
Each venue can decide how they want to celebrate the glorious dessert - by organising pop-up events, tastings, workshops, “Man versus Food” challenges or simply creating their own unique dessert special to wow the public.
Ernest Cantillon, festival chief executive and owner of Cork hotspots Electric and Sober Lane, said,“Instead of the standard festival model which takes people away from food and drink venues, the festival will take place in their own premise which will drive footfall for them, as well as putting on a great event for the public."
