Christmas entertaining

Thu, Nov 16, 2017

As the Christmas holiday season approaches, we often have guests calling to visit and it can be hard to think of healthy recipe alternatives to offer. Mince pies are always a crowd pleaser but the store-bought options generally come loaded with butter, sugar, and fat. Preparing your own healthier alternative is easier to do than you may think. These gluten free mince pies store well in an air tight container too, meaning you will always be ready for unexpected guests to arrive.

Another treat for Galway with third Papa Rich

Thu, Nov 02, 2017

Ireland has gone street food crazy with plenty of quality operations in food trucks and stalls in the most unlikely places such as industrial estates and business parks as well as markets and events. From farmers looking for a new market for their produce to budding chefs and restaurateurs squeezed out by high rents, there are talented people involved and the food they offer is going down a treat. Standards are more than a match for the best permanent restaurants and the best of them soon graduate to bricks and mortar premises of their own with the advantage of a ready built following, so it looks as if this trend is here to stay.

Sushi in the sky

Thu, Oct 26, 2017

A quarter of a century ago, in the nineties, Ireland was far from being a multicultural society and ‘ethnic’ in restaurant terms almost always meant a Chinese. It is a completely different story today, we have a bewildering choice of world cuisines, including many far better Asian offerings than before. One cuisine that was slow to establish was Japanese, initially the arrival of Wagamama caused some excitement in Dublin back in 1998, and, although sushi bars are now popular both here and in the capital, the idea of dining out on almost exclusively cold food remains strange to many Irish people.

Gill’s Bar and Restaurant, Athenry

Thu, Oct 19, 2017

Ireland has many great pubs but in general, especially outside the cities, we do not have great pub food. It is one of the challenges that needs to be addressed as we hone our emerging Irish food culture. Our pubs are a huge draw for visitors from abroad, but the food on offer inside is often substandard. Gill's Bar and Restaurant in Athenry bucks this trend, it is an establishment with a gastropub sensibility, proper craft beers on offer, and more than decent food.
