Today is publication day. It’s been a few years since I published a book, and today, I’m please to say, I have a new book out. It’s a book all about the Lough Neagh Eel, the story and recipes. All to start my journey to record 2016 – Northern Irelands Year of Food and Drink.
Earlier this year I was invited to the River to Lough festival for one of Northern Ireland’s
food treasures, the Lough Neagh Eel. A fish that’s so important to Northern Ireland that it’s been given the globally recognised PGI status as a protected food name.
As food is the story of communities and the story of people on a plate, Lough Neagh Eels are no different. It’s the story of how a fish starts in the Sargasso Sea and arrives in Lough Neagh, 3000 miles away as a microscopic baby before returning to the Sargasso sea to reproduce.
The recipes in the book are all using local NI ingredients.
