Discover Ireland on an escorted group tour and create memories that will last a lifetime with renowned Canadian chef, Christian Pritchard as your host! Authentic Ireland: Sites, Sounds and Tastes of the Emerald Isle is a 10 day adventure departing from Toronto on September 26.
Chef Pritchard’s time spent at Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market during his youth with his dad formed the basis of his culinary interest. “Food is important to us,” he says. “Eating around a table is important. Food is something that brings joy.” As a chef, caterer, entertainer, emcee, and event planner, Chef Pritchard has been featured on numerous television and radio programs, starred in his own T.V. series, worked alongside culinary legends, teaches cooking classes, and is an advocate of fresh, local foods. Chef Pritchard’s passion has enabled him to travel the world. “Travel to me is adventure. There’s always something to experience,” he says. Now, he is prepared to share his enthusiasm and inspire travellers on an Authentic Ireland tour!
“I will be working alongside local chefs using localized products from Ireland. I’m completely excited to utilize the incredible ingredients they have there,” he says. Taste your way through Ireland as you explore the country’s various wonders. You will immerse yourself in Irish culture as you participate in an Irish coffee making demonstration in Foynes, sample tea and scones in Dromoland’s castle, and learn the art of oyster shucking in Clarinbridge. What is Chef Pritchard looking forward to the most? Touring the whisky distillery and Guinness brewery of course!
With so much to look forward to, Chef Pritchard is excited for this journey. Embark on the Authentic Ireland tour with him and experience the flavours of Ireland through cooking demonstrations and dining at some of Ireland’s most distinguished restaurants.“Everybody has a great time together.
