Alongside family and traditions, great food is at the heart of all the best festive celebrations. That’s why we’ve packed the Good Food Ireland winter magazine with the very best of delicious food and drink ideas.

Welcome to the 5th edition of our Digital Magazine

An Irish Christmas is a wonderful thing, and this year will be extra special as so many of us are reunited with loved ones we couldn’t celebrate with, in 2020.

 

Alongside family and traditions, great food is at the heart of all the best festive celebrations. That’s why we’ve packed the Good Food Ireland winter magazine with the very best of delicious food and drink ideas.

 

Dreaming of Christmas dinner, Melanie May went behind the counters at two top Dublin butcher shops to see what life is like at their busiest time of the year. Joe Mcnamee meets an organic vegetable grower whose Brussels sprouts are things of beauty while John Wilson recommends the very best Irish drinks to serve guests this Christmas, alongside a selection of glamorous cocktails for celebrations. 

 

As Christmas is all about gatherings, we’ve selected ten of the cosiest traditional Irish pubs for a gorgeous Christmas get-together. We also meet four people who’ve made Ireland their home, finding out about how they celebrate Christmas here and blending their own traditions with ours to create special new traditions. We also recommend a very special driving route through Ireland’s Ancient East, that offers wonderful walks that are perfect for blowing off the Christmas cobwebs

 

And with gifts on our mind, we recommend the very best presents from the Good Food Ireland shop, including gift vouchers, exciting culinary experiences and artisan hampers. And, for those who love to cook, we’ve also recommended a selection of classic cookbooks by Irish writers that every home cook should own.

 

All that’s left for you to do is draw up the guest list and start planning your best Christmas yet!
