This week, a special banquet to promote food culture from China's Sichuan province was hosted in Dublin, attracting hundreds of local Chinese food fans. 
Let's take a look.
The event was held by the Confucius Institute at University College Dublin (UCD) on Wednesday night, and dubbed the "Confucius Institute Banquet -- A Taste of Sichuan". 
It gave participants a rare chance to enjoy authentic Sichuan-style dishes, prepared by chefs coming from the Sichuan Tourism University in southwest China.
The banquet was attended by a range of guests, including former Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, China's Ambassador to Ireland He Xiangdong, and the secretary general of Ireland's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
The Confucius Institute at University College Dublin is one of the earliest Confucius Institutes established in the world. 
It was recognized as a model institute by the relevant Chinese authorities, due to its outstanding contributions to the promotion of cultural exchanges between China and Ireland.
