A True Taste of Galway
The key to great cuisine in Galway is its freshness. Just ask Gosia Letowska. “I had a girl one time tell me that when she told her mother she was coming to Ireland, her mother gave her a plate of salt and said to take it with her because everything in Ireland was overcooked and under salted. And she said we have now changed her mind.”
Gosia changes minds about Irish food, every day with the Galway Food Tour. She takes groups on a trek through the medieval city tasting everything from scones to spirits and fresh seafood to vegetable sushi.
“People just don’t realize that Irish food has changed and is still changing,” Gosia says. “We have great chefs moving here and using their creativity and all the fresh produce here in the West of Ireland. It’s not just boiled potatoes and turnips anymore.”
