The Corona Cork Film Festival is on in Cork at the moment it started on Sunday night with an opening gala in the Opera House showing Never Let Me Go. I went to the Slow Food Gala which showed the film Today’s Special in the Gate. Despite the fact that there was a long queue just to get in a bit of waiting when we made it into screen 1 we received a little box of canapés by the canapé company (www.bitesize.ie). The company is from Midleton and the food provided was delicious! We all got a duck wrap, a vegetarian bruschetta, a salmon canapé and a small chocolate pot. There were also glasses of prosecco available too. The film was a story about a young Manhattan chef who doesn’t get what he thinks he wants, a job promotion or a trip to Paris but does end up being closer to his parents and re-igniting his passion for food through his own heritage. There are some good laughs and overall it is an engaging story. The whole evening was a lovely experience with the canapés, a few words from the director and an enjoyable film.
