COME AND HEAR THE STORIES BEHIND THE WAY WE DO FOOD…
…. and like many stories, this one started a long time ago. Surrounding Ireland’s oldest city, once a trading capital, a vibrant heartland and it’s many visitors who sought to influence us. Tales of Vikings and Huguenots, of large houses and castles nestled along our rivers, and a people who know exactly where food treasure is to be found.
It’s the way we prepare and serve our food & drink…
...enjoy bread from some of the oldest ovens in Ireland, or fermented in the traditional way by new hands. Experience great food, with ingredients foraged from local treasure troves, prepared with great skill and presented for your enjoyment.
It’s the special places in which we make food our way….
...the mountains, the rivers, the fertile soils and the sea.
And the people ….
...people who have been working with these ingredients for generations, or who have been inspired to create food in this place.
Whether visiting an artisan producer, a celebrity chef or sitting on a quirky café bench; each plate of food prepared the Waterford Way is lovingly prepared and locally sourced for you.
