Raven Rita Raven Rita By Stitch and Bear 07/22/14 00:15 The Raven Rita is a delicious variation on one of my favourite cocktails, the margarita. Chambord is a magnificent black raspberry liqueur, which comes in a wonderfully regal, orb-shaped bottle. A little dash of Chambord in a glass of sparkling wine adds...
Mixed Berry Julep Mixed Berry Julep By Stitch and Bear 07/13/14 20:19 I've been feeling the heat so much lately. It's subtly oppressive, draining my energy and leaving me restless at night in a bedroom that's too warm. So when it came to making today's cocktail, I went for the julep, a drink with a fine tradition of cooling...
Corpse Reviver #2 Corpse Reviver #2 By Stitch and Bear 06/29/14 20:16 This weeks cocktail is from the bracing family known as the Corpse Revivers. These strong drinks are intended to set you straight when feeling a bit ropey after the night before. Nothing like more of the same poison to sort you out, eh? I'm making the Savoy...
Strawberry Daiquiri Strawberry Daiquiri By Stitch and Bear 06/22/14 18:58 For some reason, the daiquiri used to make me think of what the TV show "How I Met Your Mother" called "woo girls". You know the kind… a group of women in a disco bar or nightclub, frozen neon-coloured drinks and shouting "woo" at anything or anyone. F...
Folláin's No need to knead brown bread Folláin's No need to knead brown bread By Stitch and Bear 03/11/14 18:25 I'm very proud of the far that I grew up in Cork's Muskerry Gaeltacht, or Gaeltacht Mhúscraí. This meant that I completed all my education through to secondary level "as Gaelige". I sat my Leaving Certificate in Irish, even going so far as to have Irish...
Summer Cocktail & Drink Special Summer Cocktail & Drink Special By Stitch and Bear 07/05/13 11:28 I have never liked the use of the word "foodie". I've dabbled for a while with being a gourmet, a gourmand or simply a food-lover. But none of these terms quite sat right with me, until I rediscovered the phrase "Bon Vivant". It was a lightbulb moment in...
Butternut Squash Cake (Wheat-free) Butternut Squash Cake (Wheat-free) By Stitch and Bear 02/16/13 18:02 I subscribe to many blogs, and I have found some treasures through word of mouth and recommendations. I usually bookmark the posts I find interesting and stockpile them until I have time to sit down and transfer the good content into my Evernote account....
Chairman Mao's Red-Braised Pork Chairman Mao's Red-Braised Pork By Stitch and Bear 01/31/13 22:23 I don't publish many recipes on this blog. In fact, most of you probably think that I live in restaurants! In reality, I do love to cook and do so most evenings when I'm not travelling for work. The real reason I don't post recipes is that I don't have...
Mediterranean Magic at the Tannery Cookery School Mediterranean Magic at the Tannery Cookery School By Stitch and Bear 10/22/12 22:22 A lof of my friends and family call me a lucky person. You may call me a jammy git, but over the years, I have won a fair amount of competitions and prizes, including many books, tickets to U2, and a top prize of an IBM laptop. (A huge prize for a poor...
Orange and Almond Cake Orange and Almond Cake By Stitch and Bear 09/21/12 19:23 Food is one of the great pleasures in life, but having a healthy digestive system is equally important. People who suffer from allergies, autoimmune disorders and other illnesses have to keep an eagle eye on ingredients and preparation. I've suffered with...
Great Irish Bake Off - Week 5 - {Key} Lime Pie Great Irish Bake Off - Week 5 - {Key} Lime Pie By Stitch and Bear 09/16/12 23:59 Last week was only great. All my fretting about the wobbli-ness of my crème caramels paid off and I was chosen as the Week 4 winner of the Great Irish Bake Off. Chuffed does not come close to describing how I felt. The challenge for Week 5 was to make an...
Great Irish Bake Off - Week 4 - Crème Caramel Great Irish Bake Off - Week 4 - Crème Caramel By Stitch and Bear 09/09/12 23:46 Last Tuesday was Week 4 of the Great British Bake Off, where we saw the contestants' creativity tested with the design of a large flourless torte, followed later by a creative layered meringue cake. The surprise technical challenge was a classic crème caramel,...
Spanish Baked Eggs Spanish Baked Eggs By Stitch and Bear 08/09/12 00:46 Cooking is such a rewarding activity. It doesn't matter if it's just taking salad ingredients from the fridge or creating a 3 hour masterpiece. When you eat a plate of food that you made yourself, and that more importantly tastes great too, then you feel...
Dressler, Brooklyn, New York Dressler, Brooklyn, New York By Stitch and Bear 01/12/12 10:51 I spent two whirlwind days in New York in November. I was scheduled to travel to North Carolina for work purposes, and we decided to wedge in two vacation days and make a pitstop in the city that never sleeps. I only got the green light for the business...
O'Brien Chop House, Lismore, Co Waterford O'Brien Chop House, Lismore, Co Waterford By Stitch and Bear 01/08/12 19:56 Back in early December 2011, we found ourselves driving between Cork and Waterford. As we passed by Youghal, I saw roadsigns for Lismore, reminding me that I was yet to visit O'Brien Chop House (which has been open since 2009). Being a creature who demands...
Bar Lunch at the Cliff House Hotel Bar Lunch at the Cliff House Hotel By Stitch and Bear 12/29/11 19:20 I reckon that I've driven over 1,300 km in the last 2.5 weeks. Although I live in Dublin, my newest client is based in Cork, and I've also been trekking between Cork and Waterford for family Christmas obligations. In the two and a half years I've owned...
A Beer & Food Tasting with Heineken A Beer & Food Tasting with Heineken By Stitch and Bear 12/17/11 14:44 A few weeks ago, I received an invitation to attend a beer and food matching evening, courtesy of Heineken. Several different sessions were taking place in Cork and Dublin and I put my name down for the dinner at Siam Thai in Dundrum Town Centre. I was...
Quick & Easy - Puff Pastry Pizzas Quick & Easy - Puff Pastry Pizzas By Stitch and Bear 12/17/11 14:44 Everyone needs a surefire recipe for the Christmas season. It has to be easy, quick but still produce a result that is delicious and suitable for this period of indulgence. So here's my suggestion of puff pastry pizzas. The beauty of these pizzas, or tarts,...
Market Lane, Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork Market Lane, Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork By Stitch and Bear 12/09/11 20:06 On a recent weekend trip to my hometown of Cork, we found ourselves looking for somewhere different to dine. There seemed to be one main contender, the Market Lane restaurant which had received several good recent print mentions along with Twitter recommendations....
Il Primo, Montague Street, Dublin 2 Il Primo, Montague Street, Dublin 2 By Stitch and Bear 12/03/11 19:03 I have a slight addiction to Masterchef. I watch it in all its variants, although I must admit that I'm not that partial to Masterchef Australia. Perhaps it's a bit too relaxed for me, which is probably the reason I adore the more high octance Bristish...
