Gig at The Big Top

Bon Appétit Catering in Limerick: Gig at The Big Top

Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbot play The Beautiful South, The Housemartins and Themselves.

Following their ecstatically received, sold out performance at Dublins Academy this past June, Paul and Jacqui have announced details of an extensive Irish tour dates this Autumn including a "Live at the Big Top" show in Limerick's iconic Milk Market on Friday Oct 31st.

What Have We Become’ is the new album from Paul & Jacqui. Paul & Jacqui return together on record for the first time since the multi-million selling days of The Beautiful South, who in the 1990s and early 2000s released a string of critically-acclaimed records.

‘What Have We Become’ is a wonderful contemporary record, full of lyrical wit and humour, whilst retaining a strong social conscience that touches on the changing social landscape of Britain (‘One Man’s England’, ‘When I Get Back To Blighty’), stereotypes in music (‘I Am Not A Muse’), whilst ‘The Snowman’ and ‘Some Dancing To Do’ deal with issues of loss.
Both are clearly delighted to be working together again as they explain:
Paul Heaton: “Working with Jacqui again was like going into your garage and discovering a beautiful, covered up Rolls Royce that hadn’t been started in years. Jacqui is one of the best singers I’ve worked with and is also part of my past. It was only a matter of time before I asked her.”

“I always wrote songs with Jacqui in mind. Even before I met her I pictured a voice that could carry the songs into people’s hearts in a particular way. When I first heard her sing I almost laughed because it was SO right for the songs.”
Jacqui Abbott: “It’s just great to be singing again after such a long time, especially with Paul. We had such a good run together previously and it’s just a real pleasure to be working with him again and singing these fantastic songs”

Morrissey and Marshall will support Paul Heaton and Jacquie Abbot Live at the Big Top in the Milk Market on Friday Oct 31

Tickets are on sale from Dolans or at Harpers coffee shop.


Bon Appétit Catering in Limerick: Tartiflette

The tartiflette is a French dish from the Savoie and Haute-Savoie in the Alps region of France.

The Rhône-Alpes tartiflette is made with potatoes, onions, garlic, sea salt, black pepper, cream, rich reblochon cheese, dry white wine and smoky bacon. Famous for being an easy-to-prepare and very nutritious recipe, this French dish has been very popular in ski resorts of the Savoie area since it was created. Despite its "traditional" looks, the tartiflette is a "new" dish!

It was developed in the 1980s by the Union Interprofessional Reblochon to promote and increase sales of reblochon, as is confirmed also by Christian Millau (of the Gault-Millau Guide) in his gastronomic dictionary.

Tartiflette is served hot preferably with some green salads with vinaigrette and to top it off, a crisp French white wine.

Our tartiflette is available at our shop every weekend or for ouside catering parties.
