Good Vibes, Craft & Food: the Dublin Flea Christmas Market

dublin flea christmas market 2018

The Dublin Flea Market (along with other Sunday markets) sadly had to close earlier this year due to the redevelopment of Newmarket Square. While the organisers have lost their usual market venue and are in search of a new home (you can support them here) they still managed to run their uber cool Dublin Flea Christmas Market at the Point Square in Dublin again this year.

Chef's Table Season 5: Gender-balance, Immigration & Traditional Cuisines

David Gelb's Netflix food documentary 'Chef's Table' has introduced the masses to some of the best restaurants and chefs in the world, allowing us all to get a glimpse into the high spheres of fine dining. The combination of melodramatic music, stunning cinematography and charismatic chefs has made it one of the most exciting food shows of the last few years and definitely one of my favourites to watch.

Recipe: Rack of Pork with Spinach and Apricot Stuffing #AD

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Bord Bia
As I mentioned when sharing a slow cooked pork ramen dish last week, Bord Bia is currently running a campaign to encourage people to try something different from their usual recipe repertoire with quality assured pork as a central ingredient. As well as being flavoursome and good value, pork meat is very versatile; it would be a pity to just use it for the same recipes, wouldn’t it?

48 hours in the Boyne Valley: Glamping & Sightseeing in Slane

Disclaimer: This is an independent post, I've paid for my accommodation and everything else mentioned in this post

Summer is pretty much over and I realised that I still had one staycation left to share on the blog: my glamping stay in Slane. I'd never heard of Rockfarm in Slane until I noticed it on the Instagram account of a travel blog ran by a French couple last year who totally 'influenced' me. A few months later I happened to visit Rock Farm on a day field trip with my MA course. I was convinced and just had to book a stay as a birthday present for Mr. FFID afterwards.
