In the first discussions of the Ireland Project we thought about traveling to Ireland to research traditional recipes, with the goal to learn about the regional cuisine of our ancestors.
There were some lofty goals tossed about, and visions of us cooking with locals in obscure pubs… they were the dreams the Food Network is built on.
After some time, some distance, and a dose of reality or two, we realized that what really mattered was taking a fresh approach to studying our family roots that connects cultural traditions and artifacts, like recipes and music as a means to learn more about our families.
What you can expect to learn from this site?
When it comes to Food & Fun on this site, you can expect to read and connect with recipes that were part of our family celebrations and traditions, food we love when traveling and connects us with our cultural heritage.
We will be sharing music that inspires us. And books that help us along our journey.
Our passion for a perfectly, correct brewed cup of tea. And for a wee nip of Irish whiskey.
