The Brother Hubbard Cookbook
Not satisfied with running two of the city’s most popular cafés in Capel Street’s Brother Hubbard and Harrington Street’s Sister Sadie, as well as having a hand in the healthfood delivery service Piply, Garrett Fitzgerald has now launched The Brother Hubbard Cookbook, published by Gill. Inspired by Middle Eastern and southern Mediterranean flavours, the book will have you knocking up your own shakshuka and eggs menemen in no time at all. Out now at reputable book stores.
The EatYard a new street food market right beside the Bernard Shaw in Portobello that’s inspired by their success with a similar market set-up at Bodytonic’s BeatYard and the Big Grill festivals. They’re looking to set up with a team 20 vendors in the space, on a rotating basis. Whether you’re an old hand or a novice, you can apply for a spot by getting in touch at email@example.com or the-eatyard.com
Another Bodytonic venture – they’re busy boys and girls! – returns this November, with Tippletown, their festival celebrating the humble beverage, makes its home at Wigwam on Middle Abbey Street from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th November. Highlights include a Dinner in the Dark, Vice Coffee running espresso martini workshops and even a bloody ice-carving masterclass (at long last!).
