Sourdough bread is good for bruschetta. It uses wild yeasts that ferment the dough and give it that characteristic tang. I can highly recommend the sourdough made by Declan Ryan of Arbutus Bread. Declan was head chef of the Arbutus Lodge Hotel for many years. He received Ireland's first Michelin star in 1974. In 1999 though, he gave it up to start Arbutus Bread and now makes some of the best bread in the country. Declan learnt sourdough techniques from the very best artisan bakers in San Francisco and France. As well as the sourdoughs, he makes soda breads and buttery, flaky croissants.

If you're going to be doing much stir-frying, I would urge you to buy a wok. They really are so versatile. You can buy very cheap but still really useful woks at almost any Asian food shop. They are light and beautiful and will soon be a much-loved addition to your kitchen. You needn't buy a non-stick wok, as over time a wok will develop its own non-stick coating. To do this, the wok must first be "seasoned," by rubbing it all over with a little sunflower oil before using. After that, it's important never to wash your wok with washing-up liquid, only with water and some elbow grease. The wok will quickly develop a coating that works just as well as any non-stick wok.

High hopes but sadly disappointed

reviewed by: corkfood2010on Greenes Restaurant 13 November 2010

Greenes was one of the only restaurants in Cork I had never visited and I manage 2 restaurants a week usually, so it was with great delight that I discovered they were taking part in the Dine In Cork promotion. I booked a table for ... Read more...
