Monday seems to have turned into a soup making night for me.  It starts with me rummaging through the fridge for dinner and finding veggies which need to be used or binned…  tonight, the humble courgette played the leading role.
This is a really flexible soup because you can change the flavours really easily.  Add a spoonful of pesto and a handful of torn basil, or a big glug of cream or creme fraiche to enrich it.  Continue reading »

Funky Monkey Cupcakes

A post by Babaduck at Babaduck

I know know I have made a rod for my own back by feeding my work colleagues of a Monday morning. They’re getting brave & cheeky now & telling me what they’d like me to make… luckily it was a variation on what was already brewing in my brain.  Somebody even donated a forlorn looking battered banana to the baking fund!
So, I had a pile of bananas that had to be eaten or binned & I hate waste, so I thought I’d make some muffins.  Continue reading »

Replying to an early tweet from @ElectricCork on Saturday morning about their new lunch menu got us a feast, compliments of the restaurant.
We loved: the flavoursome oil that accompanied our bread and olives starter, a HUGE fillet of “sustainable pollock” – our server left us no doubts about the fish!, and a most perfectly cooked medium rare steak sandwich. Don’t miss the sticky toffee pudding.  Continue reading »

A post by The Beer Nut at The Beer Nut

It’s back! The first new beer out of the revived Messrs Maguire brewkit arrived just over a week ago. It’s currently sporting branding proclaiming it to be “Bonza Brew”, but I imagine that after Australia Day festivities cease it will go back to being plain old Messrs Maguire Brown Ale.
I confess to being a bit skeptical when I first heard about it: an American, brewing a brown ale, for an Irish pub? This is going to be really sweet isn’t it?  Continue reading »

Had I had the motivation I would have done it myself, but I’m not the one bottling over 10,000 cases next month. As I hope to bring the cork vs screwcap debate to a close for the time being (it will raise its ugly head again no doubt) I want to show you the hard work and conclusion of Gavin Quinney’s recent survey which received over 1,100 responses. I think it gives a pretty accurate indication of consumer views today.  Continue reading »

We had plans for last Friday – Cinema, popcorn and back home as the big freeze is not really inviting to stay out too long. But destiny had other plans for us. We were too early (or too late) for the King’s Speech, so we decided that a nice meal instead might be on the agenda.
As I had read on Facebook that Fenn’s Quay has introduced a new menu, we decided to try it out. And it was the best decision of the night.  Continue reading »

I have a confession to make, one that could see me expelled from the Irish Whiskey Society. Because, you see, this week I sampled what might be regarded as the Holy Grail of Irish Whiskey: a single cask, cask strength, pure pot still whiskey from Midleton distillery. The Quintessence. It was the runaway favourite at the most recent Irish Whiskey tasting. But it did nothing for me. That admission will no doubt appall the hardcore whiskey nuts I (used to) hang with.  Continue reading »

It was an evening like any other.
I was meandering home down the dimly-lit side street, lost in thought, when something caught my eye and I halted. I looked down and could see, around and ahead of me, potato skins mysteriously scattered along the pavement. I glanced around furtively, a Poirot-like curiosity awakened, but could spy no shred of other vegetable matter in the vicinity.  Continue reading »

Foodie Roundup #14 – January 23rd – 29th 2011

Officially, this is the last Sunday of January. Which means, we’re already a full month into the year, give or take a day or so. But Sunday, at this stage, wouldn’t be Sunday for me without a flick back through some of Ireland’s top food blogs for a look at the week’s reading. Consider it a week in review, if you will.  Continue reading »
