Sweet Potato Chili

A post by Gavan at Gavan Murphy

Superbowl Sunday’s coming up so a day of copious amounts of food and drink is probably on the cards. I’d imagine the last place you want to be during the game is actually in the kitchen cooking so here’s your meal ticket. You can’t beat the one pot meal. This’ll definitely do the trick.
If you still need a few ideas of what to cook here you go.
RECIPE:
Makes 4 bowls-ish

101 vegetarian foods everyone should try

A post by noreply@blogger.com (mama deer) at tofu for tea

Sometimes when I meet someone new who doesn’t know any vegetarians, they ask “but what what do you eat?” Some people have the notion that it’s all just mung beans and lentils. While they are important, thats not all veggies eat. So with those people as inspiration, I came up with a list of foods that everyone, veggie and meat eater alike should try. I have yet to complete the list myself, but seriously, you’re opening up a whole world of taste here.  Continue reading »

A special evening is being held at the Fairways Bar and Orchard Restaurant, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary to celebrate yet another award, this time from leading food critic Paulo Tullio.  The Fairways, as the name suggests, is a short drive from Nenagh Golf Club on the Cloughjordan Road from Nenagh.  Continue reading »

DINING
AT THE CASTLE
Friday last, we dined at the B’s Restaurant in the
Castle Hotel in Macroom. And dined quite royally, I might add. Food and service
were terrific.
Service came in the shape of AJ, the maestro of the
dining room. No shortage of advice or recommendations and, if something wasn’t
on the menu, then he’d get it as he did with the fruit dessert at the end. Lots
of.  Continue reading »

The limit of creativity

A post by The Beer Nut at The Beer Nut

Brewdog didn’t even bother putting one of their colourful diatribes on the label of Hops Kill: it’s just an ad for their share ownership thingy. Label copy that tries to sell you something other than the beer behind it is a new one on me. I guess they reckon anyone who’s going to buy this limited-edition imperial red ale has already made up their mind before getting close enough to the bottle to read it.  Continue reading »

Did you know that millions of people in Italy eat Italian food every day? It’s true. So, I don’t find it odd or feel the need to justify in any way the fact that Bill and I have found ourselves partaking of the pasta several times over the last few weeks. This is completely normal….  Continue reading »

My cup, or should I say, my dinner plate, runneth over.
I had the pleasure, yesterday, of enjoying my second all-potato menu in as many weeks (and yes, I know what you’re thinking – some gals just have all the luck).  Continue reading »

Green Spot Irish whiskey

A post by David Havelin at Irish Whiskey Notes

We had a Green Spot night at the society this week. We have heard a lot about the Single Pot Still (SPS) style over the last year: it’s both the proud past and a good chunk of the future of Irish whiskey. You could easily make the case that SPS was saved for future generations by Green Spot which puttered along for years as other brands disappeared or converted to a lighter, blended composition.  Continue reading »

The Wild Boar

A post by caitrionaw at Caitrionaw's Blog

I won’t mince my words about my recent visit here. I was stunned by how mediocre the experience was. We arrived at  about 2:45 on a Sunday afternoon when the main rush for lunch was finished. We selected our own table (it is a pub after all) and a waiter brought menus to us. We were ravenous and made our decisions fairly quickly so were not too pleased at the slowness of the order taking – there was plenty of staff and most of the other patrons were eating already.  Continue reading »

Italian Hazelnut Brownies

A post by Aoife - Babaduck at Babaduck

Just down the street from my day job, there's a restaurant where the food is fabulous and the atmosphere is joyous.  It's called Caffe Formenti and their Italian coffee kickstarts my day.  Richie the chef/owner absolutely loves food and many a "try this and see what you think" moment has happened in the morning.  Last week, he gave me some of his straight from Italy hazelnut paste to use at home.  Continue reading »

Recently I was asked by the people at Low Low to host a meal for my family or friends similar to that of a Come Dine With Me experience. As part of the challenge I had to incorporate some of the Low Low products within my  recipes that I was making. Already being familiar with their range of spreads and cheeses I actually found myself spoilt for choice with what I would make.  Continue reading »

The Half Way Mark!

A post by Gavan at Gavan Murphy

First off I want to say thanks to everyone for their kind words and good wishes on our soon-to-be lil’ Murphy baby. It’s always nice to feel the warmth and good spirits from you guys. Right enough of that soppy stuff.
We’re half way through the pregnancy (of course I say ‘we’ like I have any involvement in this part of it but you know what I mean) and I have to say things are going great.  Continue reading »
