Show Notes

In our Spice Bags Christmas Special Episode, we celebrate with Marcus O’Laoire, DJ, chef and owner of D8 pubs Anti-Social and Jackie’s, and Chris Mellon of Blackberry Café and creator of Dublin Social. 

Marcus and Chris are also the co-hosts of the award-winning HeadStuff podcast That’s Bangin’, which makes them friends, colleagues, and occasional rivals!

We are all from different cultures and upbringings, so it was joyful to reminisce about Christmases past and the Christmases to come.

Marcus, who is half French, recollects some of his Christmases with oysters and foie gras. Blanca muses about small seafood bites, and her mother getting a live turkey to make her famous turkey truffle terrine. Chris waxes about how to do a perfect ham. Dee talks about doing a half-Brazilian, half-Irish Christmas dinner this year. Mei remembers that her family Christmas dish was cassoulet, which her family fell in love with in Carcassonne.

Other mentions: turkey, stuffing, spiced beef, mulled wine, mince pies and Christmas sandwiches + traditions, going abroad for the festivities and a very strange Fairytale in New York courtesy of Tinder! 

Tune in! We all had a very merry time!
