A post by noreply@blogger.com (The Mood Food Blog) at The Good Mood Food Blog

Well Hello! I woke up this morning in high spirit’s and ready to take on the day, but it dawned on me that this most probably wouldn’t last unless I kept myself well fed. So with that in mind, I decided to make a very tasty soup, and it is that very tasty soup that I am sharing with you today!
I think for some people, mushrooms are like marmite, you either love them or hate them.  Continue reading »

Michael Charlton has worked with Rick Stein and Terrence Conran, in restaurants in London and Cornwall, and in Chapter One here in Dublin. Now he’s striking out on his own with a market stall business selling organic beef burgers under the name As It Is.
I went to talk to Michael at his stall in the IFSC market last Wednesday.  Continue reading »

:: ENTERTAINING MADE EASY!

A post by noreply@blogger.com (The Mood Food Blog) at The Good Mood Food Blog

Ok so hands up you got me, burritto’s are not exactly gourmet cuisine, but if you’ve been at work all day, and have little time to prepare for guests, sometimes this is perfectly acceptable. After all, if it’s healthy and fresh, there can’t be too many complaints really, can there? I have in the past spent a lot of time in preparing for having guests over, but as time has gone on the easiest and most enjoyable nights are the ones, that seemed almost efortless.  Continue reading »

GOOD MORNING! What a morning! It’s one of those days that you just know are gonna GREAT! For you, today I have another Aubergine dish, which is more of a adaptation of the Aubergine Parmigiana I posted about last month. This is more like a full meal version of the original recipe!  Continue reading »

I would like to blame jet lag as the reason I didn’t really post last week, but it was really down to pure laziness! But I’m back and that’s what really counts. Saturday gave us the last sun, Ireland will probably see for the next 7 months, so we made the most of it and had a lovely salad on the balcony, which was actually the first time we have used it since we moved in!
I made a lovely salad with a dressing that I just had to share here!  Continue reading »

Autumn Food

A post by Drew Shiel at Rocking Grass

For all that I cook happily year-round, there’s something about autumn that makes me want to cook more. I think it’s probably to do with being brought up in the country, for one thing, when you could actually see harvests coming in.  Continue reading »

This week I decided to learn German.Nothing to do with the ululations raisedby the news that Ireland is not the sophisticated watering hole of Europewe all thought, but a less than adequateplace, downright frightening,if truth be told,for some business magnates breezing in from the East.
No, I decided to learn German because I have a very lively(and still, as I write, very incomprehensible) CD that soothsme as I fold sheets and pillowcases of a day.  Continue reading »

Phew! The first week of the twelve-week course – and, according to everyone who works at the Ballymaloe Cookery School, the longest one – is over. It’s been five days of early mornings and late evenings, our heads a-swim with new techniques, terms and ideas as we try to concentrate on Darina’s afternoon demos, knowing that we will have to cook the dishes ourselves the following morning.  Continue reading »
