Food Junkie Wood-Fired Pizza

The holy grail – the perfect wood-fired pizza. Wood-fired pizzas have gained unprecedented popularity in recent years.

Burtown House & Gardens, Athy, Co. Kildare

Burtown House There are few idioms I like less than ”hidden gem.” Adjectives like “bespoke” and “artisan” provoke a similar irate feeling in me, countless chain food companies advertising their “artisan sandwiches” and “bespoke coffee” – but the term “hidden gem” really gets me riled. How can you define something in this way when it’s in the middle of Dublin City and full to capacity … Continue reading Burtown House & Gardens, Athy, Co. Kildare
