As I had lots of bread made for my last baking class - I decided to treat myself with a plate of locals - cheeses that is. The English Market in Cork City is a haven for any foodie - especially when - like me - crazy about cheese. On The Pigs Back is a wonderful mix of continental and local food. Isabel has found that perfect balance - importing nice goodies from France etc but also supporting strongly local Irish producers. On the Pigs Back has also a wonderful bistro/cafe in Douglas (back of the Woollen Mills) - worth a visit for lunch.
|A Plate of Locals|
The meat on the plate was also locally sourced apart from the German Salami which was a present from a fellow foodie. I was more focused on the cheese of course :-)
As wine we chose a wonderful Shiraz whose ripe fruit flavour complimented the cheese perfectly - let's say we had a very happy Saturday Evening indeed
