Centre For Food Culture Boyne Valley
Throughout Ireland, we have begun to appreciate how our food culture contributes to the quality of our lives and the joy we experience when we have better access to quality nutritious food, sustainably produced from our rich soil and sea. Today, our understanding of gastronomy has deepened as we recognise the relationship that food has with society and its vital part of our intangible cultural heritage - social gastronomy. A vibrant food culture acts as a catalyst for change, bridging the gap between art, science, history and our environmental ambitions.
We believe preserving and celebrating our food culture, past, present and future, will enhance people’s relationship with food, connect them to the source of their food and the people who produce it. When we speak about food, we also include our rich heritage in brewing, distilling and drink production. Our purpose is to facilitate greater connectivity between food, people, soil and sea.
