Pulled Pork Party in Galway

A post by WiseMóna at Wise Words

It’s not often that we can all get together and have dinner. Many of our food industry friends work nights and weekends. Many of us have kids, big or small, making it hard to bring them, or break away from them.  Continue reading »

Our allotment tales are born of long hot days and long hot nights. Even on the stillest day there is a gentle balmy breeze wafting across the site from the sea.
On the cold days when the wind whips from the North and the chill feels like it is numbing your bones, your finger tips feel numb and you wonder how the earth is made of concrete.
Crystal blue skies herald the hot and the cold days. The sun warms the polytunnel and nourishes the important crops.  Continue reading »

Overnight, the ice cube tray evolved into a universal cube-making gadget. Ice cubes are elementary now. Mini popsicles? That’s so 2000. Want to know the most current and genius ways of using an ice cube tray? Keep reading.
Coffe Ice Cubes
I wish I’d thought of this sooner. What do you get when you put coffee ice cubes into iced coffee? That’s right. Iced coffee. Watered-down iced coffee will be a thing of the past.  Continue reading »

One of the food horrors from my childhood was Black Forest Gateau. In theory it should have been delightful – rich chocolate cake soaked in kirsch and filled with cherries and cream. The reality was a mass-produced travesty of cheap ingredients that turned up at too many birthday parties and didn’t pass muster when compared to my mum’s home baking. No, I don’t think I was a little food snob. Like most kids, I just knew Yuk! when I tasted it.  Continue reading »

Catching Up On Forkfuls

A post by icanhascook at I Can Has Cook?

It has been a deliciously busy summer around these parts between video shoots, wonderful weddings and holidays spent in muddy fields.
I thought I’d share the remainder of our forkful videos before the final episode of series #1 goes live tomorrow morning. There’s our courgette pickles above and our diy pastry below.
I hope you’ve enjoyed them. Daffodil claims she is almost burnt out from all the attention – although we all know she secretly adores it.  Continue reading »

It’s summertime and the living is easy…
…at least that’s what Mimi of Manger says, so I am going vicariously with it.
For the first time in a few years, we won’t be traveling stateside this summer. So, I’ve decided to bring a bit of Americana to the farm. (yes, care packages will be graciously accepted)
We’ve already gone all State Fair and made corn dogs; funnel cakes are on deck, and a few weeks ago we hosted a traditional American southern style crab boil.  Continue reading »

Don’t you just love the sweet, spicy, punchy flavour of chorizo! For me it is a fridge necessity, as it lasts quite a while and works with a myriad of other ingredients. It is also relatively inexpensive and is readily available nowadays. I always serve this with pasta – preferably tagliatelle or linguine, so it is a bit of a Latin fusion dish, crossing the Med from Spain to Italy. Two much respected cuisines to fuse I think personally! And it works a treat!  Continue reading »

Meanderings

A post by The Beer Nut at The Beer Nut

Top of my to-do list this year was travel to Kilkenny and visit the Smithwick’s St. Francis’s Abbey Brewery. They’ve been producing beer here since 1710 but that’s about to change as the 1960 takeover of the company by Guinness reaches its conclusion at the end of this year when all production will be moved to the main Diageo facility in Dublin.  Continue reading »

This has to be one of the easiest and most exciting ways of cooking a fish fillet.  I love the drama of serving the puffed up parcels straight to the table before tearing them open to reveal lots of billowing steam!  Properly cool cooking! 

Serves 4
4 Mackerel fillets, pin-boned
6 spring onions, finely sliced
4 Bok Choy, sliced lengthways
250g rice noodles, cooked

For the marinade
6 tbsp soya sauce
2 tbsp Chinese Rice wine
1 thumb sized piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
1 red chilli, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sunflower oil

Preheat the oven to 200˚C.  Continue reading »

My husband was at a (trusted) local takeaway the other week waiting for collection of food (and a gluten free order for me, yay!) and spotted the magazine called Hospitality Ireland and decided to pick it up for some light ‘waiting-for-my-food-to-be-picked-up’ reading. What caught his eye and subsequently mine, was a rather dismissive little blurb about gluten free cuisine in an article titled ‘Trends – Fast Foods’.  Continue reading »

Cupcake Shoe Walk Through

A post by KatherineB at Chew On That

A couple weeks ago on R4L’s Facebook page we shared an adorable picture of high heel shoe cupcakes from Grandma’s Bakery in Wisconsin. We got a huge response from all our fans! The Contributors at R4L thought those cupcakes were so cute that we needed to make some of our own.
