Great insight into Irish food
Really enjoying the podcasts- entertaining interviews. A great source of information for all aspects of Irish food!👏👏
important story telling of Irish food producers and makers
Patrick and Russell meet food producers growers and cooks throughout Ireland and it’s not about them (even though they are great hosts and passionate about what they do) which makes a change. Great to hear the stories about small brands and different types of foods and restaurants and shops.
Love the podcast! Thanks guys.
