Hello Sharon! My name is Ben, from Seattle USA and I listen to your podcast… all the time. My favorite has to be the Devlins Yellow Man episode. And of course anything with Sid Shehan, Rachel Kealy or Ron Forrestal are always amazing. I love to cook and after several failed attempts have perfected my favorite dish, Cioppino! It would be great to hear more episodes about seafood since you have such an abundance, and listen to the differences (and similarities) to west coast USA’s bounty of the sea.
Thanks for reading! Next time I’m in County Limerick I will visit as many restaurants as I can. The ones you’ve talked about of course 🙂
Thanks for listening and the lovely feedback Ben. It is much appreciated.
