Bank Holiday Treats to Tempt


With the weather due to take an about turn this bank holiday weekend, Easter indulgence has never been more fitting. Here is a selection of some of the best Easter treats to mark the long weekend …

Cream of the Crop Artisan Gelato

Waste. It really is one of the buzzwords of the moment and with good reason. Food waste in particular feels like such a travesty, so a small business that uses imperfect foods to create a (close to) perfect product is a winner on every level. Cream of the Crop Artisan Gelato do just that. With flavours that include pear and blue cheese, pineapple and coconut sorbet and carrot cake gelato, tough decisions may lie ahead but playing your part in stopping food waste was never going to be easy – or was it? Collection and Dublin delivery.

Beaster Weekend at Baste BBQ

Lots of exciting things appear to be happening at Baste BBQ, not least Andy Noonan’s recent shout out for traders, chefs and emerging food vendors of all kinds to join him at the Clanbrassil St Baste HQ for a summer of outdoor dining in his ever-growing food space. The season kicks off in style this weekend with the launch ‘Beaster Weekend’ filled with delicious food and drinks. There will be steak frites Friday, fire roasted whole lamb on Saturday and Baste X Deadly Bagel on Sunday. Add to that the smoked meats available to take away, Artic Stone Ice Cream, Vice Coffee and Dublin’s newest seafood truck, Sharkbait Shelby’s (love the name) and it sounds like foodie heaven. Just add sun.

Easter Family Treat Box from Castleknock Hotel

For those with a sugar aversion, this may not be for you. However, for those with a love for all things chocolate related, this may be the perfect sharing box to celebrate Easter. €45 will get you a cheesecake filled Easter egg, cookies, brownies, profiteroles, muffins, chocolate dipped strawberries, donuts, cupcakes and fudge. Dinner, optional.

The Steak House at Home Kit from F.X.Buckley

F.X.Buckley know a thing or two about steak and now you can indulge in your very own steakhouse at home experience, sans peeling and chopping. A double cut T bone comes with all the sides, including pepper sauce, caramelised onions with parsley, sautéed chestnut mushrooms with spiced butter and wilted watercress, creamed spinach with parmesan and oven baked chips. For dessert, chocolate fondant with homemade honeycomb and clotted cream should tick all the boxes and there are optional complementary wines available to order. The meal kit costs €60 for two which feels like excellent value. 24 hour notice required and Dublin delivery (10k radius) or collection available.

Beef Birra Burrito from 147 Deli

Much to the delight of sandwich lovers everywhere (or in Dublin at least), Parnell Street’s 147 Deli recently reopened their doors and they are back with a bang. Or a beef birra burrito to be more precise. Beef birra is the darling dish of the cheffy world at the moment and the 147 Deli version looks particularly mouth-watering. Slow (and I mean slow) cooked beef shin is served with grated cheeses, avocado, pickled cabbage, rice and salsa with a side of birra jus for dipping. It’s what weekends were made for.
