Myself and some of the crew from Cafe de Cuba took ourselves off to the Taste of Dublin on Saturday and enjoyed a day of amazing food, spectacular weather, music, fashion and some star spotting at the Iveagh Gardens. My gourmet feast included Jumbo Prawn Cocktail from The Saddle Room Shelbourne Hotel, Lough Erne Lamb from Balzac, Dublin Bay Prawn Scampi from Venu Brassiere, and Roly’s Hot Chocolate Pudding with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream – simply delicious.
I also caught up with some friends, Brian from Eatery 120, the gang from Venu Brassiere, Shane from Seapoint and an old friend I haven’t seen in 6 years, Catherine Fulvio from Ballyknocken Cookery School. Well done Catherine on your new TV show - Catherine’s Italian Kitchen.
My day was topped off when I was whisked off to the Paul McCartney concert in the RDS – a fabulous performance and a perfect finish to a great day!
