Story of Irish Food

History Food and Drink in Dublin, Ireland

It is “Beefsteaks and Oysters as Usual”, one Dublin eatery advertised in the 1840s in contrast to the bad news about potato failures and mass starvation. Exploring what people ate across the social classes, this foodways tour offers an intimate glimpse into the world of ancestors.

From monastic simplicity to ‘haute cuisine’ excess, the history of eating out in Dublin and a ‘national’ cuisine, sample the genius of Ireland’s food traditions and stories: porridge for war and for love, Orange butter, sea-pickings, Alexis Soyer’s soup, gin and tea. Real food tastings can be arranged.
