Gather around my little friends while I tell you a lovely story…
Good few years ago (I’ve never been good with dates) some friends of ours opened a cafe in Dublin’s Capel Street – Brother Hubbard. They had always been passionate about food and after giving up their office jobs, going travelling and experiencing different tastes, flavours, looks and ambiances, they came back to Dublin to open their dream cafe. Their food is fresh, exciting and beyond delicious and I am so jealous of everyone in Dublin for having them there.
The cafe started doing so well that Garrett and James extended their hours into the evening and even gave Brother Hubbard a sister – Sister Sadie on the other side of the river.
Although we try to visit our friends and their amazing cafes whenever we are in Dublin, I have spent years drooling over their menus on-line. I would see photographs of their food in their website or their Facebook page and I would get the urge to drive to the other side of the island just to grab a bite of that amazing food.
As the owners are friends of mine, I would send them messages asking them to share recipes with me so I could satisfy my taste-buds with an attempt to copy their mouth watering food but no! They would not share! I always got the same reply : You have to wait for the cookbook to come out.
So I did. I waited.
And it is finally here!!!!
THE BROTHER HUBBARD COOKBOOK
I can not describe how happy I am.
I am bursting with pride that my friends have not one but two amazing restaurants in Dublin. I am proud of their reviews. Proud of how much they have achieved especially because I know how hard they have worked, how much they have put into it and how much they have sacrificed.
I am also delighted for me! Because finally I am going to be able to attempt to replicate their food in my kitchen, whenever I want.
So I am off to buy my copy.
If you need me next week, I will be in my kitchen, cooking and eating.
I might share. I might not. I am not making any promises.
And when you get yourself a copy, who knows? You might find something else in there….
Check it out!
