Leaves from a Tuscan Kitchen
Author: Martin Dwyer
The notion of gap years in a career was not totally invented by the present generation. After about two and a half years in our first jobs in Dublin, mine in Snaffles as a chef, Sile as a teacher in Basin Lane in the Liberties, we decided to throw all up and head for the world outside while we still had the liberty to do so.

Author: Michael Kelly
As we move towards sowing time, my inner critic is active again, goading me to get started on work in the veg patch. Every time I look out the window at the veg patch, or visit it to grab a leek or some parsnips for the dinner, it starts up its never-ending critical commentary.

Osta Cafe & Winebar - Brid Torrades
Author: Georgina Campbell
The Garavogue river sweeps past this bright and airy café in the centre of Sligo town, and the floor to ceiling glass frontage - and outdoor seating - makes it a delightful spot for coffee (organic and fairly traded) or a more substantial meal. A small bar area is a good spot to sip wine from a well chosen list in the early evening - and later sometimes, if there are events eg the culturally-focused Osta Sessions.

These tasty recipes were created for the National Dairy Council by Vanessa Greenwood of Cooks Academy Cookery School, Dublin, with the aim of celebrating the best of Irish and European cheese at Christmas. But cheese is a brilliant (and convenient) ingredient at any time what makes these recipes especially appealing is that they are such a refreshing contrast to the traditional Christmas fare - and they’re just great versatile dishes for any time, perhaps especially in winter.

All the Christmas essentials are there, with everything for the ‘big dinner’ set out reassuringly clearly for confident reference - and plenty of options on the traditional dishes, including all the accompaniments, and alternatives for those who want to do something different.
