In Chapter 3 of The Green Fool Kavanagh writes of Feasts and Feasts describing his sheer hunger... with his friend John Gorman ...to find the funds for a good simple picnic in a field under a tree. Boiled hen's goose and duck eggs, jam, syrup and currant bread are the referenced tastes that stimulate their desire and energy to earn the money. It's why you'll find a picnic set at the Mews for your very own picnic in the local Herbert Park or choice of Georgian squares. There's great Kitchen space and access to culinary herbs in the garden if you want to prepare your own, or pick up some great fresh and healthy food to go from Donnybrook Fair on Upper Baggot Street. Here's my Green Fool recently shared with crumbled homemade shortbread on a picnic with friends. Its combination of sweetened gooseberries with the lightness of elder flower gives the fool a new twist...courtesy of Good Food Magazine 2012...follow the link.
