The "Journées du livre européen" were set up to promote European literature and encourage intercultural dialogue. For this second edition (14-21 Nov 09), the theme is gastronomy and the cookery book.

Food historian Regina Sexton is the author of A Little History of Irish Food. Designed to entice people to try cooking as they did in Ireland years ago, her book looks at food from the farm and farmyard, the garden and the dairy, hunting and fishing, as well as soups, breads, desserts and drinks. Combining food with social history, Regina Sexton has also gathered numerous quotes from historical sources and traditional Irish lore. 

An Bord Bia invites you to taste Irish cheeses and other delicacies - an Irish gastronomic treat.
