Home Cooking: A History of Irish Food & Drink in Epic
Epic presents Home Cooking: A History of Irish Food and Drink.
In this talk, Margaret Hickey, bestselling author of Ireland’s Green Larder, will look at the way that the Irish brought with them attitudes to food and drink that they shared with their newfound neighbours.
During the event Margaret will speak about bread making and baking in general, the Irish methods of distilling and how they were taken up overseas, the many manifestations and permutations on cooking with oatmeal. Irish stew and its evolution, the rituals attendant on food preparation and cooking.
The talk will also be accompanied by a live traditional music performance by one of Ireland’s most accomplished fiddlers.
