IRELAND FOR FOOD LOVERS
Everything the food lover in Ireland needs to know...
by Georgina Campbell
"What a lovely, lovely book! There should be a copy on show in every Irish embassy in the world...so comprehensive & so beautifully produced" Myrtle Allen
Food tourism in Ireland enters an exciting new phase with this new book, the first to offer a complete user guide to finding and buying the best Irish foods – and how to enjoy them at their best, both when eating out and at home.
Ireland for Food Lovers brings together the plethora of information that food lovers currently have to glean from multiple sources, and presents it appealingly as a culinary adventure through the beautiful island of Ireland, exploring the rich diversity of foods from land, lake, river and sea and setting them in context with stunning photography.
Of equal interest to Irish residents and visitors, Ireland for Food Lovers introduces readers to the many producers, farmers markets, food shops and places to eat, stay (and cook) that make up Ireland’s food culture – and gives a wide range of favourite recipes showcasing Irish produce that are practical to cook, beautiful to look at and delicious to eat.
"Georgina Campbell is one of Ireland's best respected food writers and her new book, Ireland for Food Lovers, is a wonderfully comprehensive resource for Irish food. It has everything from seeking out the finest quality chocolate in Longford to the best foodie places to stay in Sligo; there are recipes aplenty and guides to food and farm shops and markets such as the English Market in Cork" Claire O'Mahony, Sunday Tribune
"For those who want to learn from a food expert, look no further than Georgina Campbell’s latest work, Ireland for Food Lovers...includes details on a cross-section of the country’s best foods, producers, suppliers and hospitality on a region by region basis, as well as recipes, regional cookery school details and an extensive reference section." Tina-Marie O'Neill, Sunday Business Post
