Having read your latest inspiring book, we decided to fly to Cork to spend our wedding anniversary weekend at Cafe Paradiso, and what a treat it was! The food and hospitality were superb. What a pleasure it was to meet you, Denis, and to chat about vegetarian restaurants of the world. Thank you for taking the time to sign our copies of your books – we know you were busy. Thanks again for a gastronomically delightful stay. By the way, the breakasts were sublime – Johan did you proud!

I have waited 21 years as a vegetarian to eat food of this sublime quality. Even my meat-eating wife has never had better. Thank goodness there is someone out there who understands vegetables as a main ingredient and not an accompaniment to meat. The accomodation and service was excellent and we had a fantastic time. We will be back.

Many dishes were tried, all shared, all thoroughly enjoyed. Just one observation, people go for the food not the wine, yet, a better selection of red would compliment cafe paradiso to maintain the high standard of your food. We bought two books…...we will be back!

I had lunch on Wednesday in Paradise. I’,m a carnivore but your restaurant was recommended by someone who lives locally. Thank goodness, I listened for once! What I’d love to know is how to make the baba ganoush that we had…. any pointers as it’s not in the recipe book that I bought. Thanks in advance. P.S. I have vegetarian chums here and am ALWAYS short of imaginative ideas. LOVED the place, atmosphere and the FOOD

How long ago was it?...let me see…1997! Yes it was 11 years ago that i last set foot in Cafe Paradiso but I,ve been cooking from the books ever since. Blessed with real seasons in France the produce is easy to find, except parsnips, which for some reason are branded as ‘ancient lost vegetables’ and so cost a whole lot more than they do in Eire. Anyway in a land where they pride thmselves on their haute cuisine, hardly anyone knows how to give the veggies their rightful place on the plate, so these recipes have them ooh la la-ing and I get compliments i don,t deserve, just having copied the recipes from the books! Anyway down to cork the other day, we had been looking forward to lunch in cafe paradiso and we were blown away by the subtle heights the cooking has evolved to since the last time. Before it was great; now it,s sublime. If you ever want to translate your books into french dennis, just let me know! :-)

No plans to go to restaurant, unfortunately, but if someone reading this does, order the roast aubergine parcels. I made them at home from the cookbook and impressed my carnivore husband so thoroughly that he never missed his meat. I can only imagine how much better Denis can make them.
