    HAPPINESS IS A WARM POTATO

    HAPPINESS IS A WARM POTATO

    Hello Roast Potatoes!
    Welcome to Emer & Esther’s Sunday Roast Potatoes with Emer & Esther, a podcast about the joy of roast potatoes and carvery lunches.
    In this episode we went to Grainger’s at Hanlon’s Corner on NCR in Dublin where Esther somehow put away 96% of her plate despite having gone for brunch 16 minutes beforehand. We also talked about sheets of bacon fries, Emer exclusively reveals her top three supermarkets and introduces Esther to ‘a bachelor’ handbag’. Yes. We are intellectuals, thank you!
    This is our first/pilot episode so we’re still tweaking things but thank you so much for listening.
    If you have any great roast dinner/carvery lunch intelligence, recommendations, tips, news or general nonsense you want to send our way, email helloroastpotatoes@gmail.com. We’ve also started a playlist to get you in a carvery state of mind each week. If you have any great song recs, throw them our way too via email or leave them in the review section on Apple Podcast or Spotify or wherever you get your pods.
    See you next Sunday Potatoes!
    Love,
    Emer & Esther
    P.S Here’s the article we mentioned in the pod from Katy Thorton at Lovin.ie who found this a Sunday roast burrito in Cork. We also mentioned Sophie White’s new novel which you can order here or take out at your local library.

    SWIFT WITH THE TONGS

    SWIFT WITH THE TONGS

    Ahoy!
    We hopped into our gravy boats this week and sailed all the way to The Halfway House on the Navan Road in Dublin for another edition of Emer & Esther’s Sunday Roast Potatoes. 
    We recorded this late Saturday night after Emer had driven all day across the country so we're a bit chaotic but normal service will resume next week. We talked the price of Strepsils, skilled tongsmiths and Esther's teenage experience as a lounge-girl.

    TROT A MOUSE ON IT

    TROT A MOUSE ON IT

    Ciao tutti!
    This week on the pod, Esther went to Venice and came back with food poisoning, Emer went to the Poitin Stil in Kildare and had a lovely soup and we both came together to discuss yet another roast dinner all in the name of Emer & Esther’s Sunday Roast Potatoes. 
    This week's Insta Sticker was all about condiments and let's just say, there are a lot of big feelings out there. Lumpy sauces, wet topping, gravy that a mouse could trot across - we covered it all. Oh and we also discussed the stunning roast we had at The Old Spot on Bath Avenue. It was a delight.

    LAZY RIVER OF SH*TE

    LAZY RIVER OF SH*TE

    It's that time of the week again when we twirl our carrot batons skyward and settle down to another episode of the unnecessarily long titled, Emer & Esther's Sunday Roast with Emer & Esther. 
    This week we talked about vegan and veggie roast options, the flavourings mystery that is Aromat, buying things we don't need in Sostrene and Grene and of course, we investigate the carvery offering at The Templeogue Inn a.k.a The Morgue in Templeogue Village.
    If you have any great roast/carvery lunch intelligence, recommendations, tips, news or general nonsense you want to share, email helloroastpotatoes@gmail.com. We also have a playlist to get you in a carvery state of mind each week so if you have any great song recs, throw them our way too. We'd also love if you subscribed to the pod wherever you listen and if you liked this episode, give the podcast five stars on Apple Podcast or Spotify.
