The FoodService Academy seeks to help small Irish food and drink companies develop their business in the foodservice market (commonly referred to as “out of home food market”).  Continue reading »

Easy Moroccan Lamb Tagine

A post by Aoife - Babaduck at Babaduck

I'm having a lot of fun at the moment restocking my freezer by cooking one pot meals like my Beef and Ale Stew – they're so easy to do and as they're cooked in one pot, cleaning up is a doddle.  Best of all, stews and casseroles use the most inexpensive cots of meat so are ridiculously thrifty.  Continue reading »

Cheap ticks

A post by The Beer Nut at The Beer Nut

The Three Tun Tavern in Blackrock really pulled it out of the bag for the most recent JD Wetherspoon Real Ale Festival. Eleven beers, almost the full compliment of handpumps, were pouring when I called in on a quiet Sunday afternoon, the first of the festival. I had cycled there with my fingers metaphorically crossed for Pacific, brewed by Melbourne’s Thunder Road at Adnams. And sure enough, there it was.  Continue reading »

Easy workouts
An elliptical machine is an immobile workout trainer used to imitate climbing the stairs, brisk walk, or jogging without generating enormous stress on the joints, therefore cutting down the chances of collision sprains.
Because of this, folks having a bit cramps can adopt this machine to remain healthy and fit.
Whereas the climber machine is like original stairs that helps the person in getting same results in less time as climbing the stairs without being hard on joints.  Continue reading »

On a Dublin Hill – Easter 1916

It was springtime in the mountains,
Walking free, blowing wild
Over lovers in the heather.
And a linnet sang on thistles
To a melody of kisses.
The sun was rising, rising
On the day of resurrection.
And a thorn tree was swaying
Keeping sunray from their eyes.

Then a sound like thunder
Shook the gladness from the day.
Sleepily, the lovers rose
From the shelter where they lay.
They strained their ears to hear
The breaking of the sky.  Continue reading »

Hot Cross Buns are traditionally eaten on Good Friday. These ones will lead you into temptation. 

As a child, one of the great treats of staying with my Gran in Cork City was that her local bakery produced great Hot Cross Buns at Easter. Maybe my taste buds are suffering from nostalgia, but I haven’t been able to find a bakery since that can produce a bun of comparable deliciousness. Many commercial versions taste like a mouthful of sawdust – a penance indeed.  Continue reading »

O’Brien’s March Offers
April’s on the way…

O’Brien’s, who have branches nationwide, have regular offers, including one that features dozens of wines with reduced prices for each month. I bought a few of the March bottles and two are featured below. Time is running out! But if you’re too late for March, then you’re in time for April.  Continue reading »

A question of latitude

A post by The Beer Nut at The Beer Nut

Yet another IPA by Sierra Nevada today, this one a spring seasonal from their Beer Camp project. It seems very on-trend, named as it is Tropical IPA and promising mango and papaya fruit flavours. Sierra Nevada built its empire on hoppy bitterness so I was a little sceptical about this newcomer’s ability to take on the tropical-and-juicy sub-genre.  Continue reading »

I started to type up the shopping tips last night and my heart wasn’t in it. Honestly it felt so weird to be typing up tips about where to get your groceries after so much sad news from Buncrana. I called it a day, and then this morning there was more sadness in Brussels.
Look I know life goes on, and I know that we still have to go shopping (I did today), but it wouldn’t have felt right to share them last night.  Continue reading »

My local baker – Joe Fitzmaurice (below) of the Riot Rye Bakehouse in Cloughjordan – got himself very excited recently about a new organic flour – in large enough bags for him to use.

 It came from Andrew and Leonie Workman of Dunany farm in county Louth.

Leoine told me about their background.
“We both have third level education from Seal-Hayne Agricultural College in Devon.Our farm is on the east coast of county Louth with a deep clay/loamy soil.  Continue reading »

Taste of the Week
Kilmichael Goats Cheese

It comes in simple packaging. Just a round label on top and a wrap of cellophane. But there is a little beauty inside and it is our Taste of the Week. Kilmichael Soft Goats Cheese is made in Terelton, near Macroom, by Brian and Ann Bond. I came across this one in the Fresh from West Cork Cabinet in Bradley’s, North Main Street, Cork, but you will find it in quite a few Farmers Markets as well.

The cheese is made from raw milk, from their mixed herd.  Continue reading »

Pocket change

A post by The Beer Nut at The Beer Nut

Ten euro and one cent is what this lot set me back. Five beers from Rye River Brewing released under Lidl’s cringeworthily named own brand: two of them new, three previously available as four-packs of 33cl bottles but now reformatted to half litres. And all of them a first try for me.
First over the jumps was the 4.1% ABV Crafty Brewing Company Irish Red Ale which looks quite black in that picture but is more a mahogany red-brown in real life.  Continue reading »

Fish’s Special At Electric Bar

Is é an t-íasc is fearr

Haddock Koftas

Early on a Friday evening, Electric is the place to be. Take last Friday for example. Around six o’clock, the main restaurant upstairs is full and the bar, with live music, is also busy though not full, not yet!

One of my favourite parts of the South Mall restaurant is The Fish Bar. We were among the first in – well it was about five!  We made our mind up quickly and went for all the specials.  Continue reading »
