"The Irish excel with root vegetables, and every home garden seems to
boast lush rows of celeriac, parsnips, turnips, leeks, rutabagas, and
potatoes. This savory bisque is a subtle and suave use of the humble
and often ignored celery root. Along with glasses of sherry, it makes
a great beginning to an elegant celebration of St. Patrick. Spinach
leaves add pretty green color to the bisque."

Food Tips of the Week

Diet tips

At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
The problems associated with reduced carb diets
Its extremely popular, but it is really safe for you?
Scientific studies over recent years have proved that high consumption of animal fat causes greater probability of cancer, heart problems and other serious illnesses.
Remember, one fact that is often overlooked, it is very hard (although not totally impossible) for vegetarians to take up a reduced carb diet.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and green onion)

The onion and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not much scientific evidence published, allyl sulphides are also thought by many experts to aid in colds, arteriosclerosis and diabetes.

Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in every diet.
