I can also highly recommend the coddle as well as the bacon and cabbage spring rolls.
Bus from The Gravediggers to Briody’s. Shank’s mare to Mulligan’s and to Toner’s. Luas to Slattery’s. Lovely urban walk on a balmy May evening.
50th birthday of an old UCD friend’s wife a partial alibi.
Wonderful atmosphere in Dublin yesterday. Toner’s beer garden was heaving. “The mackerel-crowded seas”…
What’s the daughters fella drinking?
I’d love a good traditional recipe for coddle, anybody?
A man after my own heart.
Not in my repertoire, must admit. But the friend that was with me yesterday, and who quite often cooks coddle at home, said there are plenty of versions. His children like him to brown the meat, for instance, which is seemingly not the echt way of going about this dish. The version in The Gravediggers did not include carrots but he always includes carrots. And so forth. I imagine parsnips, swedes and turnips could easily come into the mix.
I formed the impression yesterday that bacon ribs, which The Gravediggers use, is more echt than using rashers.
