Kitchen Stories

A Food Documentary from Cork

Each of the featured Cork-based people have a unique cultural identity and it is through exploring this that  you will discover how many commonalities there are in the way different nationalities prepare, create and enjoy food. 

‘Kitchen Stories’ is produced and published by Good Day Cork. The documentary has been created with support from MamaBear Foods, Ode to Earth & Orla McAndrew Catering. It was edited by Daniel Clancy with music by Justin Grounds.
