A Weekend in Dublin: Colcannon

The reasons I LOVE Dublin:
  1. The people are kind and generous of spirit and this is reflected in their cooking, be it at Michelin starred restaurant www.lecrivain.com/ or one of the local pubs;
  2. They speak English and I understand them - most of the time;
  3. There is music everywhere;
  4. There are wonderful traditional pubs;
  5. There is great shopping and amazing food stores;
  6. There are tons of ethnic restaurants;
  7. Guinness bread!  made with molasses - so good!
  8. Scones for breakfast - or any time of day for that matter!

Maple Syrup Time! - Pudding au Chômeur or Maple Sticky Pudding

I think that every country has a food that you associate it with.

In Canada, we are lucky and have a few great products that we are known for.  Amongst others, the West coast has wild pacific salmon and the Central provinces produce high quality beef.  I do think, however, that we are best known for our maple syrup.
