Food Artisans


In Ireland, the process and outcome of food preparation is an art form. The name food artisan accurately describes the makers of Ireland’s culinary delights. The producers of such foods as cheese, olives, meats, breads and the like pride themselves in the details of their fine culinary masterpieces. Each artisan has a unique preparation process for their edible treats. Ireland is home to many food artisans, some whose secrets have survived generations. Many are delighted to show off their workshops and farms to hungry visitors who, in turn, find the experience quite pleasing to the senses- especially the sense of taste!
