Thomastown is to become an innovative training hub for chefs and catering staff after winning grant aid of €775,000 as a part of the Kilkenny Leader Partnership ”Town of Food’ competition. The intensive 35- week training programme will include 12 weeks classroom training, with the remainder of the time being spent working with local food producers and food businesses in the area. Congrats and well done to all involved!
