    CH,I just had a nice piece of my mother’s chocolate cake with some vanilla ice cream. I’m getting a huge ass. Can I say that here?I just spent three months touring America and had some amazing food. Sorry to say, no Irish smoked salmon.See you back in Dublin?JP

    green LA girl: challenge accepted! I haven’t been into Starbucks in New Zealand yet so this should be interesting. As regards chocolate, Bournville bars are great in hot chocolate but are a little one-dimensional otherwise.

    JP: You just can’t beat the Irish smoked salmon, can you?! Glad to hear that you didn’t starve on your way around the States – and that you’re doing so well on the home-baking front now! See you back in Dublin.

    Caroline – This week I saw pomegranates in the shops for the first time ever in New Zealand. Could not bring myself to pay $5.99 for one when I used to get them free from my Grandfathers garden.

    Barbara: I saw pomegranates for sale here as well – and also blanched at the price, even though they were a dollar cheaper here in Christchurch. I’m certainly not going to be investing!Tash: I just came across the Red Lentil Soup that you mentioned. Spicy and lentilly – it sounds like something right up my street!

    Pomegranate Soup is great and so is Red Lentil Soup. The Book is brill. Love the BlogChris

  8. Caroline says:

    Thanks Chris! I’m just started the book and, although it is warm and summery here in NZ at the moment, I figure that the lentil soup is going to be very useful when I get back to the Irish winter. I’m really enjoying the book and you can tell Marsha that I’m loving her mouthwatering descriptions of the food!
