On feeling right at home on Prince Edward Island – where Irish roots are many, spuds and seafood are big and where there’s more to explore than just Anne of Green Gables
This week, I’m all about chips (or fries), incl. radio interviews, newspaper articles and my 1st encounter with poutine on a recent visit to Toronto in Canada
The making of a world-record-sized potato pancake: Chefs Sham Hanifa & Pádraic Óg Gallagher go extra large with Leitrim boxty in Carrick on Shannon
Have been much distracted of late, with a new kitchen in the making and a flurry of upcoming food events, including Ballymaloe LitFest and a trip to Prince Edward Island, potato capital of Canada
There was mash & more on the menu as Comber-based Mash Direct celebrated their 10th anniversary, proving mashed potato to be as solid a business foundation as any
It may be time for potato planting, but this weekend I found myself harvesting instead
It’s that Organic Centre Potato Day time of year again and in a week, too, that saw a well deserved Irish Food Writers’ Guild award for Dave Langford and Dermot Carey and their heritage potato collection
So the Great British Spud Off is on the lookout for Irish entries – they want to know who can grow most from a single spud. Plus expect seeds & spud heads aplenty at the Organic Centre Potato Day in Leitrim this weekend.
