Wild and beautiful, "A Taste of Cork" takes the reader on a voyage around a stunning county on the very edge of Europe. Cork's rich and diverse landscape is renowned, but in this book one of Ireland's top photographers, Sean Monaghan, presents it in a new light, combining the spectacular vistas with the world of the artisan gourmet food producers who are so much a part of the culture. Sean Monaghan describes the motivations and method behind his photographs as well as recounting the anecdotes and individual stories of the people, giving a unique flavour of the county from Kanturk Castle and McCarthys artisanal butchers in the North, to Crookhaven and Durrus cheese in the west. In the style of such books as "From High Places", this wonderful book shows you a side of Ireland in a new light, and gives a flavour of not just the scenery but the life of a county, and how this can be experienced in a whole new way.
