Belfast: Creating a New Food Tradition

Sheila Dillon visits food businesses round Belfast to explore the thriving new food culture of Northern Ireland.

In this series of four programmes broadcast over Christmas and the New Year, Sheila Dillon explores the link between tradition and food.

Sheila ends the series by exploring the creation of a new food culture - in Northern Ireland. It started with the revival of the St George's market in Belfast - now in full swing, and hundreds of young businesses are now thriving. Sheila tours the market with chef Paula McIntyre and meets people with a new take on traditional Irish food. She catches up with butter and cheese producers who were in the vanguard of this new movement, and asks how you carry on innovating - and what they've learned on the way. And she travels to the island of Rathlin off the north coast of Ireland, to meet a family who are making an international business out of growing kelp, and exporting it to Japan.
