Foodtalk on Newstalk launch

Kevin Thornton, caught listening to dry ice while recording kitchen sounds for Foodtalk on NewstalkOn Monday night we launched Foodtalk on Newstalk at Thornton’s Restaurant on Stephen’s Green. It was great to see so many of the people that I interviewed on my trips around the country there – Fingal Ferguson came armed with cheese and lots of other Gubbeen goodies, Green Saffron‘s Arun Kapil had plenty of spices to smell and taste (just put me near his fennel seeds and watch them disappear!), while the Murphy’s Ice Cream boys – Kieran and Sean – turned up with a selection of ice cream snowmen which had us oohing and ahhing in delight before we dug in and promptly demolished them.

All over now, just the broadcasts to look forward to, starting on Christmas Day at 1.30pm. I know the Husband and I will be back at Pruntus with all my family for Christmas so it’s going to be a real traditional gather ’round the wireless while in the midst of Christmas dinner preparation at the Hennessy household! Don’t forget to tune in…

    Good to see you again Caroline, and that breakfast kept us going all day. Keep in touch, and I look forward to the program!

    I hadn’t been in for ages but that Cornucopia cookbook reminded me of how much I used to love it – and you can see why! Massive breakfasts and no rubbish about the pig meat recall…the perfect place for a meet-up the morning after the night before.
