The Silver Chicken’s first birthday

21 Jul

The Silver Chicken is a year old today. On 21 July at 20:12, the earth moved, children looked towards the sky and dogs started barking as The Silver Chicken hatched. Whether or not this actually occurred will no doubt be an area of debate for historians in years to come. All I know was that I was in the kitchen cooking my first recipe- Hake in a parcel.

The blog like all thing in life has taken a different direction to what I thought it would. It has been great fun, and I would like to thank all of you who have visited this page, subscribed, liked, followed and sent smoke signals. It is all very much appreciated and it has been great to get to know other bloggers and food producers in Ireland over the last 12 months.

The real reason I am writing this post is as a very tenuous excuse to show you some wonderful birthday cakes that we had made for my sister’s 21st recently. Owing to a family gig and a 21st for all her friends there were two cakes. I only got one. This no doubt will require hours of therapy later in life.

A good friend of Deborah’s, Shona- made the cakes- you can find her here: Cup that Cake. They were works of art- with intricate detail that is not visible in the photos above. We are very grateful for the hard work and effort that went into them. If anyone is interested in getting something like this made- I will happily pass on the contact details.

So thanks for a great first year, and I’m looking forward to the next one.
