Travel Episode- Ireland, the Fresh Island

It was once said that the best four-course meal you would find in an Irish Pub was 3 pints of beer and a bag of potato chips. Old Irish cooking styles used to be cheap cuts of meat, boiled to death in a big pot with vegetables and potatoes. I got to go to Ireland a few years ago to navigate the pricey culinary landscape firsthand to see if this were true. Because I collect culinary eating experiences as if some people accumulate old coins or stamps, I was the ideal candidate to search out the most distinctive and extraordinary dining establishments.
