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.
Potager at home
Potager, Skerries' hottest restaurant, will now be offering a takeout menu on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings for those that are lucky enough to live nearby. The menu will be posted on the Potager website and social media every week and orders can be placed between 10.30am and 3.30pm on Monday to Wednesday by calling 01-802 9486. Collections are available from 5pm to 9pm with each slot spaced out at 10 minute intervals in order to adhere to social distancing guidelines. This week's menu includes chorizo arancini, glazed suckling pig, prawn tortellini and more, so make sure to order before slots sell out! Click here for more info.
Dublin café Tang, which has locations on both Abbey Street and Dawson Street in Dublin, is back open for business, offering click and collect as well as delivery through Deliveroo. Through the company's website, you can also buy vouchers for lunch and coffee, so even if you can't make it to the café, you can still offer your support. Click here for more info.
