Food and Cooking

One of the many changes that have been experienced by the Bridge-IT participants during their lifetime relates to the types of food consumed in Ireland and the methods of cooking. The items in this collection include accounts by the participants of the types of food they ate when they were younger as well as descriptions of the cooking methods and conditions. This collection is linked to the exhibition on Dublin City Life under the section called Home Life.
