Foodie

Apart from travelling, my other big interest is: FOOD!

My culinary roots are Italian, neglecting French that will say: French cousine is the best one, most of you will think that the Italian one is so variegated, complex sometimes, and incredibly good and tasty; not to mention some Italian dishes that are known Worldwide. Irish traditions and cousine is different: big quantity of patatoes, chicken, cabbage, pork and butter are used daily.

After half a year in Ireland I choose some ‘typical’Irish dishes not to missed while roaming around the country! Let’s have a look!

SEAFOOD CHOWDER

One of my favourite dishes is made out with shrimps, scallops, monkfish, cod, salmon, haddock, shellfish, potatoes and carrots chunk in a dense creamy soup! Yummy!

STEW

Beef or lamb stew is very popular in Ireland, the broth makes the dish really warm, perfect  to face the Irish cold and even if it seems a small portion this poor recipe will make you full! All is served with a guinnes bread’s slice and irish butter.

 SHEPHERD’S PIE & VEGGY SOUP

Shepherd’s pie combines beef meat, carrots, peas and tomato paste to create a thicker and tastier ‘bolognese sauce’ as first layer, with mash potatoes on top, topped then with cheese and so, cooked in the oven to create a slightly crust.

BAGEL

This roll-with-a-hole is really easy to find all over the country, also in many supermakets. (Bagel is not a traditional Irish dish, probably the origin is polish, but is widely consumed in Ireland) Bagels are preferred as breakfast with smoked salmon and creamy cheese, delicious!

FISH GOUJON & CHIPS

Thin strips of fish, coated in breadcrumbs and deep-fried accompanied by chips and house sauce.

BBQ CHICKEN WINGS

Just a finger licking good chicken wings cooked with plenty BBQ sauce on top, usually served with raw carrots and yogurt sauce. So Jucy!

 Mouthwatering?!?
