Aoife Carrigy
Maybe it's an islander thing, but we Irish have always had a curiosity for what lies beyond our shores. Marry that with our loyal love of the land – another islander quirk – and its world-class meat and dairy, and perhaps it was inevitable that an Irish take on continental-style charcuterie would eventually become the latest food trend to take our collective fancy.
