Home means many things. It's a place for family, friends and solitude. It's a safe haven and a retreat. It provides shelter, security and independence. And for those who have lived without a home, it means everything. The Gathered Table: A Taste of Home is a collection of 55 recipes from across Ireland's food world. Bakers and butchers, farmers and food champions, producers, shopkeepers and chefs have shared their most cherished recipes, all for a good cause. Compiled by Gather & Gather, whose ethos is about using food to bring people together, all proceeds from this book will go to the Peter McVerry Trust, the national housing and homelessness charity whose work is needed now more than ever. In buying this book, you will be helping the Peter McVerry Trust to change more lives and give more people a home of their own with a table at the heart of it to gather around.
