Offaly good caramel …
We’re back from our Irish travels and we have since heard that Management’s welcoming relatives, with whom we stayed for a couple of days, had later won an award at Blas na hÉireann (the Irish Food Awards) for their Dulce de Leche product. So, well done Clara Fields on your Chef’s Choice award (and my apologies for the clichéd ending to the limerick that it inspired)!
When your taste buds demand you procure
A gustatory affaire d’amour
Then please let me fetch ya
Some Dulce de Leche
From Clara … To be sure, to be sure!
(and the limerick’s anapestically correct too – woohoo!)
Postscript: One longstanding ambition of mine had been to visit Achill Island in the northwest of the Irish mainland, and Keem Bay in particular where an historic basking shark fishery once took place. It was well worth visiting anyway, but made all the more so by my former professional interest in fisheries for the sharks.
and some other assorted views elsewhere on our tour …
