The book, and others, now consider Cork to be the culinary capital of Ireland.
I had an excellent piece of fish on our first day in this region. Seafood is plentiful and inexpensive here.
I have been able to indulge my love of goat cheese. Every. Day! No, not tired of it yet
Today we had lunch at one of the restaurants featured in the book. We actually tried to eat at their main location in Midleton on Sunday, but they were closed. Farmgate is known for using what is locally in season. Their chicken salad was beautiful and excellent. I had a toasted sandwich with goat cheese, spinach and beets. Delicious!
I don’t have a comparison to say Cork has the best food in Ireland, but I liked everything I ate.
