Irish food drawings – Day 6

I’m in late with the posts, but I’ve been two days away for Saint Patrick’s…I’m sure you’ll not mind 😉

Day 6
(16th March 2014)


  • – Italian Coffee
  • – Cinnamon Swirl (I wish we had this in Italy, I really miss it when I’m not in Ireland!)



  • Sandwich with boiled eggs and salad cream (this is something that Stevie found a bit strange, but they work together very very good!)

Day 3
(13th March 2014)


  • (Italian) Coffee
  • Double Chocolate Mini Muffin



  • (English) Muffin
  • (Italian) Salame Felino ♥ (here they don’t have salame sigh!)


Tea Break:

  • A tea (me…yes, I did, I had a tea instead of a coffee!)
  • Cappuccino (Stevie)

We went to a Coffee House in Lurgan called ICONS; it’s very nice and comfortable, I think I’ll be back there other times, maybe to have a coffee or tea while I draw! 😉



  • Rustic chicken with vegetables (potatoes, long green beans, carrots)

Day 2
(12th March 2014)


  • Italian coffee (yes, I have my italian coffee machine too! Or better, I have two, just in case one is not working anymore :P)
  • Muffin (the English one) —> in Italy we don’t know there are even these muffins I find here, I knew just only the sweet american muffins. If you, like me, didn’t know, read the difference here.



  • Gammon (Bistecca di prosciutto)
  • Sweetcorn (Mais)
  • Potato Wedges with chili

I had a wonderful dinner, cooked by Stevie; it was the first time I had gammon, it’s delicious! I added a bit of extra virgin oil on it and on the sweetcorn, as usual 😉


Cinnamon swirls ♥


Buongiorno! I love cinnamon swirls ♥
They’re almost impossible to find in Italy, so I try to eat as much as I can here before going home 🙂

Breakfast with espresso and cinnamon swirls @ Lurgan – Northern Ireland

Coffee cream recipe


It’s useless to say that the cooking here in Northern Ireland is completely different from the italian one: the first times I’ve been here every dinner was a pain, but now I learnt to enjoy it. Nonetheless I miss italian dishes and I cook them as much as I can (for Stevie’s happiness, also 😉 ). Some days ago I was very bored and so I tried to make something very easy and not too long, featuring my beloved espresso coffee.

Coffee cream (Crema al caffè)

– flour: 2 spoons
– milk: 1/2 litre
– sugar: 3 spoons
– coffee: 3 espresso cups

1. Put inside a pan flour and sugar and mix them .

2. Pour the milk in the sugar and flour paying attention to create a uniform mixture.

3. Put the pot on low fire and stir. Add bit by bit the coffee and continue to stir until the mix in the pot boils.

4. Let it boil for a minute continuing to stir the cream.

5. Put the result in cups and enjoy it hot or let it cool down if you prefer to eat it as a pudding.

p.s. sorry in advance if there are any errors in my text, it’s the first recipe I translate 😉

Good morning!



The first thing I brought with me in Northern Ireland is a “caffettiera”, the italian coffee machine. I can’t wake up without a good italian coffee ♥
