As part of Fáilte Ireland’s work to promote food experiences across Ireland’s Ancient East, the tourism development authority brought Irish chef and food writer Catherine Fulvio on a tour of the region to procure local ingredients and create authentic dishes which bring to life the culture of the area. The video chronicling her experiences, which can be viewed below, also highlights some of the key visitor attractions in Ireland’s Ancient East, including the Boyne Valley in Meath, The Irish National Stud in Kildare, Wicklow’s Glendalough and the Comeragh Mountains in Waterford.
Commenting on the video's content, Jenny De Saulles, head of Ireland’s Ancient East, said, “The Ireland’s Ancient East brand is all about storytelling and heritage, both of which we are bringing to life through food in this video. Catherine Fulvio’s culinary creations are synonymous with top quality, local produce and it was great to get her on board for this unique piece of content. Teaming up with her helps to showcase the culinary richness of the region as well as the amazing visitor gems across Ireland’s Ancient East.”
In the video, Catherine Fulvio speaks about why the region stands out to her, saying,
“One of my favourite parts of Ireland is Ireland’s Ancient East with rich, lush farmland that provides some of the most sumptuous and natural foods that you will find anywhere.”
