While I was visiting County Clare a few years ago, I stopped for lunch at The Wild Honey Inn in Lisdoonvarna. I still remember what I had for lunch. A bowl of carrot and coriander soup followed by a fruit crumble for dessert. To this day, it is still without doubt, one of the tastiest lunches I have ever enjoyed. Fortunately for me and for all of you, Chef and proprietor Aidan McGrath shared his recipe with me. His love and respect for sustainable ingredients is evident in his cooking. His soup also had another little surpise. Shredded pickled carrot in the bottom of the bowl. Simply delicious. The smooth and natural sweetness from the soup coupled with the tangy pickled shreeded carrot made for a great mixture of both textures and flavors.
