Irish Soda Bread ~ 1836 Oldest Reference ~ Read the history

From November 1836 Farmer’s Magazine (London) VOL 5 p.328 referencing an Irish newspaper in County Down

Oldest Reference to Soda Bread — Society for the Preservation of Irish Soda Bread.

THE SOCIETY FOR THE PRESERVATION OF IRISH SODA BREAD. INFORMATION ON THE HISTORY AND PREPARATION OF TRADITIONAL IRISH SODA BREAD AS CREATED BY OUR ANCESTORS..

UNITED STATES

This site is meant to encourage modern bakers to get in touch with their Irish roots and use the traditional ingredients/recipes when making “traditional Irish soda bread.” Sure, make the fancy desserts for St. Patrick's Day, but save a spot on the table for Irish soda bread to remember how far the Irish have come from the days when it was the only thing on the table to today when our tables are filled with good things to eat and thoughts of the Famine years (An Gorta Mor) are long forgotten.

THE KAHALA TURNS 50 IN HONOLULU

Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie proclaimed January 22nd, 2014, The Kahala Hotel & Resort Golden Jubilee Day.

As a returning guest of the hotel since the mid 80’s, it’s very exciting to be a part of this years celebrations. When we checked in last week, as the staff says “welcome home”, we were told that in the last five years we had been their guest 22 times, yes our home away from home. The Kahala is a perfect oasis of serenity and elegance, just a short drive outside the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, yet close enough to enjoy the best of both worlds.

We had the honor of being a part of the celebration dinners, held in the beautiful Hoku’s Restaurant, just last weekend April 5th, 2014. The event was called “Remembering the Maile Room” Featuring Kahala Executive Chef Martin Wyss and Hotel Okura Tokyo La Belle Époque Chef Katsuya Yamamoto.… Read More

On The Road – Oahu – @TurtleBayResort #Pipeline

The North Shore of Oahu, we are staying in a cottage right on the beach at Turtle Bay Resort. Lots to do here, golf, horseback riding, helicopter tours, large gym with ocean views, beautiful spa and lets not forget surfing. We love the cottages because we are right on the beach, like being in your own little private Hawaii.

Below is good night and good morning view from the cottage, with beach beyond the ground cover, so perfect.

 

We went to Pipeline yesterday, the waves were awesome, even caught a body surfing contest, see below.

Like Shrimp, go to the source, hang a left out of the hotel, head down the road you will see a dozen or so places to stop for fresh shrimp, right along side of the shrimp farms.
We had garlic shrimp and butter & lemon shrimp… at Giovanni's

On The Road – Oahu

We decided to make a trip to the North Shore of Oahu, check out the waves at some of the most famous surf beaches in the world. More then seven miles long, the North Shore Beaches see the world’s premier surfing contests during the winter months. I love just sitting and watching these amazing waves. Look for photos here tomorrow, we’ll let you know what’s happening.

Below, flying into Oahu.

Driving up to the North Shore, it’s lunch time, we need a place to eat. Everything looks packed, so we keep driving. Lucky us we come across Haleiwa Joes Seafood Grill. Here is where you can view the harbor, the food is great, you can even dress in your beachwear – this is where locals dine and visitors enjoy heaping portions of Aloha.
The staff is awesome, and alwas smiling.
Below is fresh marlin taco, caught by local fishermen. The spicy edamame was great and a must to share.… Read More

—cooking with Tom Colicchio at Gramercy Tavern. “Working under Colicchio as a 22-year-old cook was likely the best and most inspiring learning environment,” says Lindley. Today, the Chattanooga, Tennessee native mans the kitchen at St. John’s Restaurant, where he has made a name for himself as a five-time-semifinalist for Best Chef in the Southeast by the James Beard Foundation.
