Culinary Salon Dinner with Conor Spacey

Thursday, October 26 2023, 7pm - 10.30pm, at Academy Restaurant, Ulster University, York Street, Belfast


The Oxford Cultural Collective and Ulster University are staging a Culinary Salon: a series of dinners hosted by some of the UK and Ireland’s most admired chefs and food writers. The events, which are held in the Academy restaurant in central Belfast, celebrate the cultural diversity that characterises our contemporary hospitality scene, celebrate Northern Ireland as a leading food and drink destination and provide outstanding learning opportunities for students.

This creative initiative has been made possible through generous funding from the Savoy Educational Trust.
