  • Welcome to the artisan food showcase
    of County Cork........

    Taste Cork is an innovative marketing group representing many of the outstanding food and drink producers based throughout Co. Cork. By opening a virtual door to the county’s kitchens, farms, dairies, bakeries and other small-scale production facilities, Taste Cork invites you to recognise and celebrate the delights of our distinguished local produce.

    For hotels, restaurants, pubs, retail and wholesale buyers, we’ve created a convenient trade section. For ’foodies’ we offer comprehensive lists of stockists and markets. So, no matter what your role in the local food supply chain, we would love to hear from you; we’re always keen to welcome new members to our dynamic food network. This is your opportunity to savour and share the true flavour of Cork’s exceptional food culture! Blessed by nature, blessed with people....

  • Blessed by nature, blessed with people....

    Boasting some of Europe’s finest lush pastures, pristine deep seas and stunning coastlines, it’s no surprise that Co. Cork is the home of a magnificent treasure of internationally-renowned food produce.

    Top quality fish, shellfish, sea salt and seaweed are sustainably harvested from the rich seas and shorelines of the spectacular South and South West coasts of Ireland providing the choicest selection every day. Our imposing mountains and deep valleys provide perfect grazing conditions for dairy farming and premium livestock so it’s no wonder then that Co. Cork’s cheese and dairy produce is internationally sought-after and why our beef, pork, lamb and venison is considered some of the finest in Ireland. What’s more, our exceptional, nutrient-rich soil also offers the ideal growing conditions for deliciously flavoursome vegetables, while the county’s unique forests provide the perfect smoking flavours for our famous smokehouses.

    Now, add to all the above, the talented hands, creative minds and expert know-how of our innovative community of artisan food producers, the hard-working individuals who are quietly dedicated to producing our remarkable local food, an enviable wealth of sweet and savoury food experiences infused with the heritage of exceptional artisan skill.

    No wonder Cork is considered the gourmet capital of Ireland.
