I don’t normally rant on this blog, but I just have to let off some steam. I was in a cafe in a Galway town the other day which had an Illy sign outside the door. I have had fairly decent coffee in there before. This time, when I asked for a short americano, the waitress brought back a huge mug of INSTANT coffee. I asked her where the americano was and she said the machine was gone. I looked at the counter to see an industrial-sized tin of Maxwell House!!!!! Seriously, get your act together. In this day and age, I EXPECT decent coffee in a place with an Illy sign. Don’t leave it up if you have decided to short-change customers with ersatz rubbish. Even a tin of Azera would have softened the blow. MUST do better.
Seriously, isn’t roast chicken one of your Top Ten dinner dishes? This recipe creates its own fancy schmancy jus. Now, where is that hunk of crusty bread?
This is so quick and easy. Try it for supper.
This cheeky little goat’s milk is non-smelly and delicious. I met the family at their farm in Dunmore, Galway for my artisan piece in the latest issue of Flavour magazine.
