We currently carry out archival work to identify historical, local seafood recipes of the Dublin coast communities. We do this by searching through the archive of the National Folklore Collections at the University College of Dublin. We also visit the collections of the National Library Ireland and the National Maritime Museum of Ireland to optimise the outcome.
The idea is that each month a new recipe will be released right here on this website. Each recipe ought to reflect the seasonality of the seafood dish and shall be easy enough to be cooked at home with basic cooking skills and kitchen tools.
At the end of our project, we will publish these recipes as a Food Smart Dublin booklet including the stories surrounding each seafood, the nutritional values and where the organisms can be found.
Recipes are coming soon!
