Or steak and chips with bearnaise sauce to you and me! Last Monday and Tuesday were bank holidays in Northern Ireland, so we decided to celebrate the long weekend with (another) meal together. Paul happily scoured St. George’s Market for some excellent foccacia and ciabatta from The Yellow Door, while Kelly and I set our..
