Jack McCarthy was at the launch of Country Cooking of Ireland by Colman Andrews. Jack impressed Colman with his award winning spiced beef which is cured with guinness and cider.

The launch was organised by Good Food Ireland and was attended by many of Ireland’s leading quality food producers. Also at the launch were Darina Allen, John McKenna, Myrtle Allen, Peter Ward, food writers and politicians. McCarthy’s are mentioned in the book in the artisan section.
