A ‘golden circle’ of Ireland’s mega-rich step in, at no cost to them, and borrow money from Anglo-Irish to prop up the bank’s share price? It surely wouldn’t happen in a banana republic! But let’s not insult the bananas! And the Taoiseach, who was the Minister for Finance at the time, tells us he knew nothing of the illegal operation even though he has admitted he knew there was a problem with Sean Quinn’s share-holding? Does he think we are all bananas? And, all the time this fiasco is ruining our international credibility when we need it most to borrow from all and sundry just to keep the country above water. Even in Oscar week that’s got to have the makings of a ‘Best Film’ plot!

I called to Oscar’s Bistro very early on a Saturday evening, at 6.15pm, and was surprised to find several diners there already. They open at 6pm. By 6.30pm the restaurant was filling up nicely and there was a good atmosphere. One of the most striking differences since my last visit was the new pictures on the walls. There are very large stunning images, and upon further enquiry I discovered that they were all taken by the owner/chef, Michael O’Meara. In fact on the reverse of Oscar’s business card are the details of Michael’s other passion, www.foodandwinephotography.com. I recommend that you have a look as some of the images are stunning.
Far too often the only use given to this versatile and decadent decapod, this abundant and delicious crustacean, is to eat the claws and forget about the rest.

Thai cookery is in many ways unequalled in producing fine broth type dishes. The use of lime leaf, lemongrass, and coriander which are often enhanced with coconut milk and basil can produce broths with incredible depth and style. Another advantage of poaching foods in a broth is the healthy benefits of this cookery style. Although coconut milk has a high fat content it can easily be substituted by a low fat alternative. Another great thing about Thai food is that once you master the basics of how to balance the various Thai spices and flavours it is easy to alter a dish to include fish and vegetables. Aubergines work very well in Thai cookery. Thai fish sauce or nam pla is essential to achieving an authentic Thai flavour. Don’t be put off by this strong smelling condiment — when used correctly it can make a good dish great. Another handy point when using Thai curry paste — the green paste is the hot one and the red paste is the mild.
