“We arrived at the RDS for the third and final day of Catex 2019, we were super excited for what the day had in store for us. Our lovely neighbours in the UCC ensured our energy levels were kept up by supplying us with an endless amount of pizza slices. Coffee and Pizza, breakfast of champions.
We were again in awe at all of the interesting and eye capturing displays and stands. Each time we visited a new stand, our rubber arms were twisted to try a sample, it would be rude not to 😉 From pizza, to cakes, burgers, ribs, goujons, and ice cream, the options were endless.
The day began with the Declan Byrne, President of the Bartender’s Association hosting a seminar, it was followed by a question and answer session at the Chef Network Lounge on how to progress your career and succeed in the industry, which was also extremely enjoyable and interesting.
After a lovely chat at the Laura Ashley stand, I cannot wait for their tea rooms to come to Ireland, I will most definitely be visiting for an afternoon of tea and treats. An afternoon of sophistication and bliss, it will be something not to miss.
Later in the day, the Avonmore Irish Latte Art Competition took place, there were some magnificent creations. To end the day the results from the Barista and Latte Art finals were announced, well done to all involved especially to Wojciech Tysler who will go on to represent Ireland at the World Barista Championships in Boston in April. I personally struggle to make a nice cup of coffee never mind topping it off with a work of art.
The last day did not disappointment, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and all the interactions with the different people we met from all industries. We also left Catex with a delicious Strawberry Gateaux from Patisserie Royale. We are excited to bring this back to the office for tea time tomorrow.
Thank you Catex 2019, it was a pleasure.”
