All Together Now announce food lineup


The festival has announced its food lineup for Curraghmore this August with many favourites returning.

The Grub Circus at The Theatre of Food and Crudo return to All Together Now as part of its varied programme this August Bank Holiday Weekend 1st to 4th in Waterford.

Here’s a look of what’s happening:


Crudo, the award-winning casual dining restaurant inspired by Mediterranean fare, returns to All Together Now! They will take over our restaurant with an exquisite four-course dinner available over all three days, and a delicious brunch menu on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Their four-course menu, inspired by summer BBQs and the Italian family table, makes Crudo a must-visit experience at the festival. Don’t miss the chance to savour these delectable dishes that capture the essence of Mediterranean cuisine!


For Brunch they’ll offer a Bottomless “Irish Breakfast” Buffet including honey-roasted local sausages, maple cured pancetta, free range eggs (with veggie options), also included are complementary freshly baked pastries, fruit juices and as much tea or coffee as you need to set you up for another great day. 


With a proud focus on local and sustainable produce, Crudo’s menu is brimming with mouthwatering dishes. Enjoy a traditional Antipasti sharing starter featuring house-cured Irish wagyu beef bresaola with jalapeno mustard, signature burrata with romesco, and plenty of vegetarian options. The Primi course offers fresh chorizo lasagne, while the Secondi includes Spiedini (Italian BBQ skewers) with choices of Slane Valley lamb, Venetian spiced monkfish, and pumpkin & oyster mushroom, all served with grilled flatbreads, green chilli gremolata, black garlic aioli, and organic leaf salad. Finish with a Macedonia summer fruit salad, complemented by Amaretto zabaglione and fennel seed crumble.


Kids will be able to dine too with a kid-friendly menu for both dinner and brunch. There will also be a bar on site serving some special signature cocktails and a wine list to complement the meal.

Seats will be snapped up fast so those interested are advised to book early to get a preferable slot and avoid missing any artists they want to see. After the last dinner sitting, Crudo will be serving small plates, wines & cocktails with music provided by some of the best DJs in the country who will be announced closer to the event.


The Grub Circus at The Theatre of Food, programmed and hosted by multi-award winning Senior Food Writer at the Irish Examiner Joe McNamee, is a two-day extravaganza of events, demos, cooking competitions, tastings, workshops, debates and, at times, downright mayhem and madness, featuring some of Ireland’s top food personalities including, chefs, producers,  growers, makers, distillers, food writers and more.
