By Debbie Rogers: I visited Ireland last year on a short press trip and met some extremely passionate farmers, food producers and artisans. The quality of food that I ate during the trip was exceptional. The people were passionate and proud of their produce and quite rightly so. Many of them had grown their business from a small family business into something much bigger. With the support of Bord Bia, they were also working on more sustainable ways of making their products, farming and food production through a program called Origin Green.
When I left Ireland my suitcase was packed with a small haul of Irish delicacies, many of which were not available here in Dubai which left me yearning to return for another food tour, and hungry to be able to buy the products here. Now you can and over 50 Irish products are available here in Dubai. I feasted on a selection of them at an Iftar hosted by Bord Bia”
More than an Iftar! A tasty celebration of Irish food.
Chef Thys Schoeman Head Chef at The Sum of Us shared with three recipes from the Iftar menu. You can find the recipes here.
