IRELAND: CULINARY TREASURES OF THE EMERALD ISLE
The food scene in Ireland is enjoying a renaissance: taking a tradition rooted in history and pairing it with a contemporary twist. Chefs and eateries all over the island are getting creative with their culinary heritage, using the world-class ingredients on their doorstep.
Head to any town in Ireland and you’re guaranteed food that’s simple, delicious and expertly prepared. Fresh-off-the-boat seafood; sea vegetables harvested on local beaches; milk and dairy products from the local farmers’ fields. This honest approach to food has made Ireland famous.
Good food is just the beginning. From micro-breweries to farmers’ markets, and city bistros to Michelin-starred restaurants – in Ireland, you can get behind the food, meet the producers and see how it all comes together.
With the help of our tour operator, Global Gourmands, I’ve designed an itinerary that’s fuelled by artisan producers, innovative chefs and world-class ingredients.
Trust me when I tell you Irish cuisine has come a long way since the potato was first introduced in 1589 (or trust SAVEUR Magazine who recently named Dublin one of the best culinary travel destinations in the world).
Highlights include a cooking class at the world renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School, a cooking lesson at the home of Ireland's most famous chef, Catherine Fulvio, dinner at Fade Street Social (the flagship venture of Ireland's MasterChef, Dylan McGrath), a tasting tour of Dublin, wild food foraging, a tour of the English market in Cork, an overnight stay at the magnificent Dromoland Castle, and much more!
