Wednesday's #ShopForIreland guide

Three ways to support Irish businesses today.


Even though we're all still practising social distancing and most of us are working from home, we still want to help support Irish food and drink producers. 

We've decided to help our readers #ShopForIreland so we'll be posting every day to highlight producers around Ireland. Get in touch on our social channels with your suggestions on who we should write about.

Klaw Café takeaway

While Niall Sabongi has kept himself busy running SSI (Sustainable Seafood Ireland) during the pandemic, he recently announced that Klaw is back up and running in a new guise. Dublin's original lobster rolls are now available for delivery with three options available: lobster rolls only, lobster rolls with a Bloody Mary kit or just the Bloody Mary kit. The lobster roll kit includes two whole cooked lobsters, four Firehouse Bakery brioche buns, Klaw sauce and herb blend, sour pickles, lobster cracker and picks, tortilla chips with Old Bay seasoning, and an instruction manual. Prices for the Bloody Mary kit start at €40, with prices for the lobster rolls starting at €60. We advise ordering ASAP as these kits are sure to sell out fast. Click here for more info or to order.

Aimsir at home

Michelin-starred restaurant Aimsir is closed right now but you can still enjoy a little taste of luxury by indulging in an at-home curated wine selection or a set of Aimsir seasonings. The Aimsir wine box costs €296 and is made up of six specially selected wines, including one Champagne, one dessert wine and four other diverse wines. The newly-released Aimsir seasoning kits cost €24 and have been handcrafted by Jordan Bailey himself using foraged ingredients and Achill Island Sea Salt. The three available flavours are wild garlic salt, fennel fronds and coriander flower salt, and birchwood smoked rosemary and bay leaf salt. Click here to order yours now.

Spitalfields and The Pig's Ear picnic bag

Normally we wouldn't tell you about any unavailable deals, but we don't want you to miss your opportunity to get your hands on these picnic bags. The Pig's Ear and recently-opened sister restaurant Spitalfields announced last night that they would be teaming up to offer picnic bags for two costing €65. Each bag includes starters and snacks, sausage rolls, dessert, a cheeseboard, wine and more. This week's bag sold out in a matter of hours but we've been assured that more will be available for sale next week, so keep an eye on Spitalfields' Instagram page for updates.
