A US photographer and journalist from the National Geographic recently paid a visit to Ireland to sample some of the culinary delights in Dublin, and apparently, they were ‘blown away’ by what they found: “The quality, creativity, and dedication to locally sourced ingredients we witnessed were on par with what you’ll find in some of the most sophisticated cities in the world – yet set apart by a uniquely Irish emphasis on comfort and simplicity.”

Well thank you National Geographic – we do try!
