APRIL MOVIE NIGHT - ROMANCE

Our romantic chef Max Porter from Native Sun Foods presented us with a supper fit for smooching.
The heart and soul of Ireland's cooking.. the potato and the cabbage were lone stars...together they make up Colcannon the dish of the nation and the nation in a dish. It’s a particular dish of mashed potato, cabbage, shallots, parsley..cream and butter. Served it with drunkin mushrooms and carrots in guinness..to be sure to be sure....and a slice of spotted dog soda bread…soda bread with currents, supper was delicious. "Up the duff" puddin' is a whisper to all that love a good chocolate lick or two. Warm soft entered chocolate pudding with armeretto marmalade and soft cream a romantic interlude of sensual indulgence. The cafe treats were profiteroles with white chocolate custard filling, cool beverage ginger beer and a fight..or not.
Max also starred in his own movie 'Max Porter: Celebrity Chef' by our film maker President Arnold Kopff who wrote, directed and produced a film tribute to our wonderful sponsors.
