    I LOVE Avoca! I must have eaten in half their stores and they were always packed out. The one place I could always count on to get a decent fresh salad. And their brown bread won me over, I seriously contemplated trying to bring some home. But I contented myself with their cookbook and, of course, have not made one single thing from it since. Must get onto that.

    You’re right about their salads Plum – well worth driving miles out of your way for! The Avoca cafés do point up just how well it can be done, and how little of an effort is put in by many other Irish cafés. Maybe they should all get their own copies of the Avoca café cookbooks! I’ve both of them but, until recently, had cooked few of the dishes. They are well worth digging out, however. Lots of great ideas even if you never get round to cooking an entire recipe.
