Renvyle House Hotel, Connemara Bread

Bread being prepared for the day

Yes, we will be renovating our website very soon. We hope it will be even easier for you the user to us, even moreso than the current one. Yesterday's excercise was to update our photographs with the updated bedrooms and of course Tim and his team's delicious food from breakfast through to dinner.

A busy morning and have to admit, I buckled at the warm chocolate pudding and once the photo was professionally taken I had a taste which led to a pretty clean plate!

Please find a gallery below. Keep in mind that these images are taken from my mobile phone so really don't do the food justice, but Aoife will have the real ones for us soon.

Renvyle House Hotel, Shamrock

Shamrock

St. Patrick's day seems to be the turning point for Spring in Ireland. People come out of their shells and there's an air of celebration. Most try to keep to traditional meals on the day such as Bacon and Cabbage or a Lamb dish of some sort. An Irish Fry with brown sodabread is a great start to the day.

Here are some nice Irish phrases for you to try out tomorrow!

"Aithníonn ciaróg ciaróg eile"
Translation
: "One beetle recognises another"
Meaning: It takes one to know one; Like sees like

"Dúirt bean liom go ndúirt bean léi"
Translation
: "A woman told me that a woman told her . . ."
Meaning: Don't believe everything you are told. It may be just gossip.

"Mol an óige agus tiocfaidh siad"
Translation: "Praise the youth and they will come"

"Níl aon tinteán mar do thinteán féin"
Translation
: "There's no hearth like your own hearth"
Meaning: There's no place like home

Renvyle House Connemara Lamb

Tim's Connemara Rack of Lamb

Tim has kindly given us a nice recipe for Connemara Rack of Lamb. Although it is still a bit early for Connemara lamb, lamb from other parts of Ireland can also be used with great success. In this recipe, Tim has timed the cooking for 'rare'. If you would like to cook it to 'medium', cook it for 35 minutes. And for medium to well done cook it for 40 minutes.

Renvyle House Pancake Tuesday

Renvyle House Pancake Tuesday

Shrove Tuesday, the annual pancake feast, takes place tomorrow. It is the day before the start of the Lenten fast, also known as "Pancake Tuesday". Pancakes will of course feature on the breakfast menu at Renvyle House. It is a time when many still engage in the tradition of making, tossing and eating mountains of pancakes. Over-indulgence is expected, and children will go into school on Ash Wednesday boasting of their pancake-eating feats!

PANCAKE RECIPE:
makes approx. 12 pancakes

Ingredients
100g plain flour
Pinch of salt
1 egg
300 ml milk
1 tablsp. melted butter

Method
Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Crack the egg into the well; add the melted butter or oil and half the milk. Gradually draw the flour into the liquid by stirring all the time with a wooden spoon until all the flour has been incorporated and then beat well to make a smooth batter. Stir in the remaining milk. Alternatively, beat all the ingredients together for 1 minute in a blender or food processor. Leave to stand for about 30 minutes, stir again before using.

To make the pancakes, heat a small heavy-based frying until very hot and then turn the heat down to medium. Lightly grease with oil and then ladle in enough batter to coat the base of the pan thinly (about 2 tablsp.), tilting the pan so the mixture spreads evenly. Cook over a moderate heat for 1-2 minutes or until the batter looks dry on the top and begins to brown at the edges. Flip the pancake over with a palette knife or fish slice and cook the second side.

The simplest pancake filling and still one of the best, smear with a little butter, sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice but you can of course fill them with whatever you like!
