Humble things are the things that animate Peter Ward. A scone warm from the oven. A slice of brawn with brown bread. A pickled tongue. The Nenagh butter that creates the canvas for a mince pie. A piece of Parmesan aged for 50 months by his friends in Italy. One of these days, when he has a chance to catch his breath in between running the stores at Kenyon Street and in the Limerick Milk Market, Mr Ward might find the time to start writing that book about the importance of holding on to the heritage of glorious, humble, profound country food, and real, true country cooking. In the absence of the book, we will have to simply enjoy the reality of what Country Choice does: it makes the choicest of choices from the bounty of the country, and brings them to us. A warm scone, Nenagh butter, damson jam, Earl Grey tea... There is no more that you need.
