WHAT ARE THE FOODS YOU MUST TRY IN ALDI

WHAT ARE THE FOODS YOU MUST TRY IN ALDI

Do you remember when Aldi and Lidl first came to Ireland? It was so exciting? There was a frisson of excitement, “some of their stuff is actually nice” we would whisper to others in the know. Roll on 10 years and we’re all shopping at the German Twins. And interestingly enough, we’ve all developed this fun habit of hopping between... Read More

TOP URBAN HOTELS FOR FOOD LOVERS IN IRELAND

This is it, the moment we have all waited for, the moment when Ireland finally inches out of its third national lock-down. People are booking holidays en masse.

ORZOTTO WITH ROAST CHICKEN, PEAS, MISO AND THE KITCHEN SINK

ORZOTTO WITH ROAST CHICKEN, PEAS, MISO AND THE KITCHEN SINK

I’m of the school of thought that a dish’s name should simply be a small list of the top ingredients. But what do you when all the ingredients are as important as each other? You improvise and reference the kitchen sink, that’s what you do. This is a real comfort dish, the orzo cooked in stock looks glossy like normal... Read More
