Foodspotting In September

I keep taking the photos but must really remember to keep getting them up on Foodspotting! This month had a few highlight dishes, in particular given the four days spent at the Waterford Harvest Festival. No doubt the end of October will be fairly well stacked with shots from the Savour Kilkenny Food Festival. Here’s a few dishes that came across the table in the past month. You’ll find loads more here.

Spinach, Walnut & Ricotta Canelloni @ Marble City Bar and Tea Rooms

Spinach, Walnut & Ricotta Canelloni @ Marble City Bar and Tea Rooms in Kilkenny. Absolutely delicious, on the lunch menu, portion is big enough for two. Rings in around the ten Euro mark for lunch but it’s a big meal at the height of the day.

Confit Duck

Confit Duck at L’Atmosphere, a French bistro in Waterford. Though not too clearly advertised, you can get a combo starter and main course lunch (which includes the duck) for just €15. Money well spent on what was a tender, filling dish.

Kiwi & Berry Custard Tartlet

The Bishops Palace Café in Waterford boasts no fewer than six pastry chefs in the kitchen with a fine array of desserts made daily on site, this one is the pick of the bunch for me and I’m not that much of a custard lover either. Keep an eye out for it if you make it there.

Venison Tartare

Not long in business, Elda Wild produce wild venison and this Venison Tartare taster at Bodega’s Tapini & Beer night during the Waterford Harvest Festival was enough to get me hooked. I wound up going home with a few venison sausages and burgers and hopefully get to catch up with Jason again at Savour Kilkenny at the end of October.
