Culture Bite: Camerino at IMMA

Posted 4 months ago in Arts & Culture Features, Food & Drink Features


This Spring sees The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) mount one of the largest exhibitions in its history in a show sees the iconic art gallery zoom in on the nation-states that emerged in the wake of the First World War. The gargantuan, multi-faceted offering provides the visitor with plenty of food for thought as it explores the role of art and artists in relation to the expression of national identities, nation-building, and statecraft.

In addition to exploring the exhibition, it’s always worth making time to take in the stunning collection of artwork in the gallery’s gardens and grounds, which extend to forty-eight hectares in Dublin 8, before checking out the cakes and brownies at the Camerino Bakery and café. The award winning bakery operates a mobile food truck in the outdoor Courtyard at weekends, where visitors can enjoy a light bite or two, with their signature offerings also available indoors in the museum’s Basement café seven days a week.

An exciting new event at the end of April sees the Camerino join forces with creative producer Mary Kilduff, and publishers Blasta Books and Nine Bean Rows to host the first iteration of The Cookbook Club, an evening of dining and storytelling, featuring a Q&A with chef Kwanghi Chan. His debut work, Wok, is the first Cookbook Club pick, and also doubles as a menu for the evening.

The inaugural event takes place on Monday April 29, with tickets going on sale from April 3rd.
