Sunday Suppers: Irish Memories

We visited Ireland in 2010 and really enjoyed the food. Sure we had a lot of fish and chips and Guinness pies, but we also ate hearty oat bread slathered with marmalade, mussels with rich broth, quite a bit of tasty pate, seafood and broad beans. Here are some dishes that remind us of that trip. For some Irish classics check out last year’s St. Patrick’s Day roundup.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

  3. Love this combination. Much more unique than some of the Irish posts I have seen this week.

    I agree with Kristy. Those mussels look amazing!

  5. Goodness, those mussels! I adore them, but the rest of the family don’t, so we rarely eat them!
