I actually think that’s an e. I worked as a chef for two and a bit years after leaving school and I can confirm that using those little chocolate pen things is hard as fuck. What that chef has done is the equivalent of the Book Of Kells, only an edible version which is therefore vastly superior.

And now for some learning: The Mad Monk craft beer pub in Midleton sits adjacent to the CoI church, St John The Baptist. But it is also the site of the original Cistercian monastery founded by monks from Burgunday in about 1100AD, which gave the town it’s actual name – ‘Mainistir Na Corrann’, the monastery by the weir. It was the British (wasn’t it always) who decided to name the town after the fact that it was halfway between Cork and Youghal.
