Archive for June, 2007
Everyone’s tastes change over time, and mine have been no different. Ten years ago I drank cider (hard cider for the Americans in the audience), drank only “ordinary” tea, and if I was inclined toward chocolate at all, preferred a sweet milk chocolate, most like Cadbury’s or thereabouts. I was only starting to distinguish between different wines, and it hadn’t really occurred to me that you could taste other differences. Continue reading »

I’m not sure how the Irish Stew came to be labelled with “Irish”. At home, it was just stew, and it rather confused me later on to find references to it by nationality, as though stews elsewhere were different. Stew is also a winter sort of a dish, or at least autumn, but it’s a chilly, foggy day in June here, and so it’s springing to mind. Winter dishes, from my point of view, are the ones that leave you feeling warm. Continue reading »

i’ve been meaning to go here for ages, and today since wild ways was closed, we thought we’d try something new.
they have a lunch menu until about 6, so that suited us fine, as the prices were significantly lower than for dinner (about 12€ for a main at lunch and around 22€ for dinner).
the restaurant boasts organic and local produce and i think you can tell. elaine and nicola had the fish and chips and i had the falafel. Continue reading »
Scribes, Listowel, Co Kerry. This is a nice little coffee shop / restaurant, a minutes walk from the square in Listowel. It only opened a few weeks ago, just in time for the summer trade, and for the writers festival.
