- View as map
Peter and Mary Ward’s passion for good food is palpable as soon as customers enter their wonderfully busy eatery and deli, Country Choice, in Nenagh, County Tipperary. All food is made from scratch and on a daily basis.
Country Choice is an award winning independent delicatessen, café and supply business which was established by Peter and Mary Ward in 1982. The shop is still in its original 200 year old premises on Kenyon Street in the traditional market town of Nenagh in County Tipperary.
What can we say about Peter Ward’s Country Choice? Its reputation precedes it! The man himself is a food icon – a mover and shaker who makes things happen on the Irish culinary scene. And it all started here, at his own vibrant and packed-to-the-rafters-with-good-things-to-eat shop in the heart of Nenagh.
Peter himself chose the location because of its connections with local food - there were butchers and grocers on the same street in those days, and it seemed an ideal place to start. For the last 25 years, Country Choice has stuck to its core principles of local sourcing of foods and promoting the work of the best of Irish artisan producers both in the region and nationally.
Now his shop is a shrine for gourmets, and the pavement outside is well trodden by locals and visitors alike. Good Food Ireland Member
