Dining out in Dublin and our changing eating habits
23 August 2017
Eating Habits - Dining Out in Dublin with 'Free From' Friends Post by Edwina Elizabeth O'Connor from www.thelifeofstuff.com for Rustic Stone I was originally going to title this post as 'Dining Out in Dublin and Our Changing Diets' but felt the word diet could be construed from the definition I'm writing about. To diet is to essentially, restrict oneself. I'm not talking about that definition. I'm talking about the kind of food people are eating. People's diets, in other words our eating habits and the kinds of food we eat. Ireland's ...

Out with the Old, In with the New - Healthy Eating, Dining Out
23 January 2017
Out with the Old, In with the New - Healthy Eating, Dining Out Out with the old, in with the new! It's such an easy ideal to have in your head as the end of the year approaches and the New Year comes into play. It's even easier to muster up the motivation to apply this theory to your diet, especially after the over indulgence of the festive season and the New Years celebrations. Why? Because for most by the time the New Year is upon them, they are literally fed up with indulgent foods, drinks and sweet treats, and in some cases so too are their clothes! I lost count on how many ...

Diageo World Class Cocktail Experience
Dylan's development kitchen
15 April 2015
It’s early in the afternoon as I climb the stairs to Dylan McGrath’s development kitchen atop his ever busy restaurant Rustic Stone. I knock tentatively at the door before entering and am greeted by Dylan and three colleagues. They’re all dressed the same- in stark chef’s whites and all wielding a knife or spoon. The first thing I notice is the light and brightness of the room. Exposed brick, solid wooden support beams and what I can only imagine to be the most modern kitchen appliances make up this new playroom for the chefs. Careful not to interrupt their creative ...
The rise and fall of Gin: Part II
11 March 2015
Part II Unprecedented consumption Within 50 years of its introduction to England, London was home to over 7,000 gin shops, in a city with less than half the population of modern Dublin, where there are less than 1,000 pubs today. It’s estimated that in the 1730s, 10million gallons of gin were being distilled annually in London alone. Less than a century since its introduction into English society gin, consumption had reached epidemic proportions. Some estimates conclude that the average Londoner drank more than 14 gallons of gin a year! Parliament was slow to act to calm the beast that ...
The rise and fall of Gin: Part I
03 March 2015
Gin is arguably the most divisive tipple. For some it’s the drink they associate with older ladies who lunch, for others it’s drank with caution, assumed to bring out the melancholy that they’re normally able to conceal, and yet for others it’s their favourite spirit to sip. Unlike popular spirits such as vodka or whiskey, gin cannot trace its history to antiquity; indeed its origins are quite hazy. Created by a Chemist There are moments of clarity in the fog of gin history which help us pinpoint the Genesis of gin to the modern Netherlands in the early 17th century. It is first referenced ...
