    #26 | With Relish Live - From The Sublime To The Ridiculous

    We were back at The Fumbally Cafe once again for this very special edition of the podcast, as With Relish makes its second appearance at The Dublin Podcast Festival & Eat:ith, The Fumbally’s autumn series of events.

    This years theme was; From The Sublime To The Ridiculous, and Aoife and Harry tasked their guests, who were each representing one of Ireland’s 4 provinces, to speak about what makes their food region so unique, brilliant and slightly bizarre at times. The star studded lineup featured some of Ireland’s most passionate and influential culinary figures of recent years, and was by far our biggest podcasting highlight so far. 

    A huge thank you has to go to all of our guests for joining us on the evening, our wonderful sold-out audience for their participation, Ash, Luca and everyone at The Fumbally Cafe for their amazing hospitality and Alan the Headstuff.org Editor who got us out of some very scary tech difficulties which nearly ruined the night.

    The Line Up:

    Cliodhna Prendergast who is represented Connacht, is a professional chef and food writer-photographer for the Sunday Times. Currently living in Connemara, she is one half of Lens and Larder; Photography and food styling workshops telling visual food stories with International photographers in extraordinary Irish Country Houses.

    Raymond McArdle is the owner of The Forge restaurant in Co Meath, and has long established himself as one Ulsters leading chefs. Having grown up on the Co Down coast, McAardle has worked in some of the countries top kitchens such as Roscoff and Deanes, as well as earning 3 AA Rosettes when working as Head Chef at the Nuremore Hotel from 2001 to 2011\.

Originally from Slane, Co Meath from a family of hoteliers, Joe’s passion for locally produced ingredients makes him the perfect candidate to represent Leinster for this culinary roundtable.

    #24 | An Episode About Crisps

    Since beginning the show last year, we have tackled many of the lesser talked aspects of Ireland’s food industry in our episode themes, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Today’s programme continues in that vein, as we look deep into one of the countries most treasured foodstuffs: Crisps

    We have been so fortunate to speak to guests who are extremely immersed and passionate in what they do, but no more so than today's guest Christine Orford who is a contributor to A Blog About Crisps (https://ablogaboutcrisps.blogspot.com/), which is the country's leading voice in crisp criticism and review. This episode was a joy to record, and includes a variety of expert crisp reviews, a load of laughs and a 4 pack of Tuborg.
