European Year of Cultural Heritage
Creative Europe has designated 2018 as European Year of Cultural Heritage, and in Ireland, the theme is Make a Connection. Ormston House is proud that our project World Recipe Exchange has been approved by The Heritage Council to use the EYCH 2018 label. We will announce our first events of 2018 very soon and we invite you to join us in exploring our rich and diverse culinary heritage.
You can find out more about EYCH 2018 here or follow the hashtags #EuropeForCulture and #WorldRecipeExchange on social media.
World Recipe Exchange is led by Marta Sławińska. The R&D phase is kindly supported by the European Cultural Foundation and Limerick City & County Council.
New to World Recipe Exchange?
World Recipe Exchange is a programme of food events based at Ormston House. We bring people together to explore how our culinary heritage continues and changes in the new contexts of our increasingly culturally-diverse society. As we cook, taste and share food, we are also creating a database of recipes that originate from all corners of the world but are nowadays cooked side by side in the kitchens of our city.
Our 2018 programme will start in March with the first of monthly events presenting tea and coffee drinking rituals from around the world. We will also mark traditional cultural holidays from around the world by showcasing the meals that are traditionally served on these occasions and the accompanying customs.
