I’d take any excuse to visit, and last weekend I had the wonderful opportunity of being a judge at the Blas na hEireann food awards at the Dingle Food Festival. The Dingle Food Festival is easily the best food festival I’ve […]

Berlin breakfast Seeking out good places to eat in a new city isn’t just a way to fill your belly with yummy things while on holiday. Travelling around trying to find delicious eateries can be a great way to discover hidden parts of a city as well. That’s my excuse, anyway. Myself and Niall were […]

Catalan Cream a la Cal Pep  I wasn’t planning on posting about our eats in Barcelona, which we visited a few weeks back.  In truth, most of our time in Gaudi’s canvas-of-a-city was spent either living it up at Primavera Sound festival.  And when we weren’t doing that, we were recovering on the beach. However, […]
