IT’S amazing what a few tweets will do these days. From booking a table in a restaurant to sharing a recipe online or from gossiping to snooping, the new wave of interest in the social media forum that is Twitter has taken the online community by storm.
And none more so than the food and wine gang that tweet their tweeps with aplomb.
A half a dozen tweets between Stuart at FromVineyardsDirect, (@FVDIE) Lorraine at LaCucina (@Italianfoodie), The Hunt Museum (@HuntMuseum) and myself (@andrewcareylk) and a wine tasting was organised for the end of July in Limerick where a host of cracking wines will be sampled and available to try at the Hunt Museum.
Stuart will bring an array of “beauties” to sample including Commanderie Mazeyres 2001 from Pomerol or some for the rose table where guests can go from Bordeaux through Navarra, Gascony, The Oc and all the way to Provence while the River Shannon floats by.
The evening, scheduled for July 21st and with more details to follow, guests will sample some excellent canapes and snacks from the Hunt Museum Cafe.

OK, it has been a long time coming, almost 11 months or so, but after a dabble in the world of social media through #thetwitter, I decided, like Lazarus from the grave, to raise the dead FFT blog and give it some life. I hope I a mo not flogging a dead horse, but, you never know until you dip your toes back in the water and all that.
Anyhoot, I hope to give it a blast and at least use it as a forum to bang out a few extra characters, the surplus not allowed thanks to the guys at #thetwitter and their 160 character limit.
