The story of his life and culinary influence on Ireland and the world
Dr. Tim Campbell is the Director of the Saint Patrick Centre in Downpatrick Ireland. The Centre is an award winning, modern exhibition complex offering permanent interpretative exhibitions featuring interactive displays on the life and story of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The center provides a thorough education of his life and legacy. The IMAX theatre brings it all to life. Dr. Campbell has studied Irish history and the history of the patron Saint Patrick.
Chef Terry McCoy shares the story of Saint Patricks life and cuisine he would have eaten and introduced to people as he made his journey through Ireland. His life has been filled with his passion exploring the culinary world. He is the author of the book Saint Patrick’s Plate, which explores the diet of Saint Patrick and shares 60 great recipes for a St. Patrick’s Day meal or as an way of healthy eating which can be adopted today. His book is filled with ideas for delicious recipes from the people, places, myths and legends of Ireland’s most famous Bishop.
