With St. Patrick's Day approaching on Thursday, I'll dedicate this post to all things Irish. Here are a few tasteful reasons why celebrations are in order from County Kerry + why Irish chefs cook with such passion using their "produce from the sea".
Meeting Manuela Goeb at her Bakery and Pastry Shop in Kenmare was one of the highlights filming for my TV series in Ireland. The food she produces is with a living well approach, using only all natural ingredients and made in the same authentic German bakery traditions she was raised with in Franconia. Keep in mind, the finest Kerry Butter is one of the key ingredients in her baked goods.
We had so much in common; with my early days as a chef being trained by some of the finest German bakers. Manuela knows her dough. I look forward to seeing Manuela again and enjoying her delicious sour dough bread. If traveling to Ireland and you make your way to Kenmare, be sure to tell Manuela hello for me.

You don't have to walk far to bump into a friendly face, make a new friend or be subject to true hospitality while in Ireland. I think every comic, storyteller and musician must have a bit of Irish in them. Join me and my friend Will for some authentic good Irish conversation, as we sample tradional pub fare.
