Around the World in 80 Meals: The Emerald Isle

September 15, 2018

Inspired by the fictional story of Phileas Fogg and his wager to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days; our care team have set themselves a similar challenge. The wager in this case is that each team member must put forward and prepare a world inspired dish for Residents and Staff every week: anyone who fails to complete this challenge in one of the 52 weeks will have a forfeit to pay.


In the Jules Verne classic story, Fogg makes a wager of £20,000 (£2 million in 2017) with members of London's Reform Club that he can circumnavigate the world in 80 days or less. Fortunately the forfeit is not £20,000! - Just honour, pride and a round of xmas drinks is at stake!

On Saturday 15th, Alison steps up to the plate to prepare her home cooked recipes from the Green Emerald Isle: Ireland. Our Residents and Care Team will be spoiled with the following menu:


Traditional Irish Stew with Homemade Dumplings

Irish Potatoe Pancakes served with grilled bacon/scrambled eggs

Kilkenny style Colcannon


Washed down with some Guiness or Irish Whiskey
