here where south asia meets the himalayas we have sauces based on apricot kernels, walnuts or almonds, pomegranate season is coming, sticky aubergines, wild greens, deep brown honey, dried mulberries, but no one capturing it to make a great cookbook. do come visit, the flood has affected the whole country from hunza to the arabian sea, make a cookbook make a tv show with proceeds for the 20 million people who have lost their homes? meet the great street cooks and home cooks and show another side of pakistan apart from taliban. i had a memorable meal in cafe paradiso long ago, but from this distance the best i can do is read the menu and the cookbook… best wishes.

THanks so much for a wonderful dinner last Tuesday night – it was magical and restored my faith in restaurants, I can’t wait to get back to Cork and to Cafe Paradiso. Thanks so much.

Just wanted to say thanks for a wonderful meal last Friday evening. The food was incredible, I’ve been raving about it to everyone all weekend! The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely, as were the staff. I really enjoyed the experience and can’t wait for an excuse to go back to Cork. It’s fantastic that you’re back up and running after the floods. Many thanks again for an amazing meal.

If I close my eyes for a moment, I can taste the beetroot risotto I had last Thur night. Bliss. We had a wonderful 2 days with yourselves and Gort Na Nain, eating wonderful food and enjoying the best of hospitality. The new motorway may be boring, but it makes you so much nearer.

Hallo Denise and Paradiso Team. Your cooking inspired me and the kindness of your staff warmed my hearth. Now I am in a place where you are a stranger in cooking book shelfs, but your style lives on with me. All the best wishes to you all.

If you get hold of decent apricots this summer, make the poached apricot and polenta cake from Paradiso Seasons and serve it with Greek yoghurt. I made it while on a Greek island and it was perfect. The feta and watermelon salad from the same book is great too (renamed krima to karpouzi (the poor watermelon) by a Greek purist (don’t mess with my watermelon). Recipes from Wild Garlic such as the quinoa pilaff with parsnips and the roasted vegetable salad and the aubergine/halloumi parcels get a lot of airing in my kitchen. Next book when?

Sobhlasta! We had a truly gastronomic 2 days in Cork, one that will never be forgotten. Our big thanks to everyone at Cafe Paradiso. There will be many attempts at recreating the food but it won’t be the same. I highly recommend that people try the breakfast – you’ll have to stay the night and eat the morsels on offer in your room as well – what a chore!

I ate in Cafe Paradiso last weekend & it was everything that I hoped it would be, & more. Word of this wonderful place reached me about 3 years ago & I often dreamt about the perfect meal I would have there one day. It took a while but it was worth the wait. I spent all last week thinking about why it was such a unique experience & I came up with the following; the food is sublime. The choice is vast, there are many different styles & flavours to choose from on the menu. It was a proper dining experience unlike going to a veggie cafe or somewhere similar. It was reassuring to know the vegetables were hand picked locally & that it was a purely vegetarian kitchen. I wanted to soak up the experience & savour every mouthful of food & store the memory of its taste so I could resurrect it when faced with yet another bland excuse for a vegetarian meal in an average restaurant. Life will be hard from here on in as nowhere can compare to the meal I so throughly, on every level, enjoyed here. It is food for the soul & I hope to nourish mine again soon! Go raibh maith agat.
