Hey everybody,

Those of you hitting us here for the first time, too late, we've already hit the road. Feel free to explore this site as we've got some great recipes and articles posted here, but make sure you hit up the new site for even more great foodie stuff--Just look at the feed to your left!
These days I've also been/am a contributor on these great sites:
Dancing Spoon
Health Habits
As well as Ireland's Life & Fitness Magazine.

Feeling social? Visit me on Twitter, Facebook, Friendfeed, LinkedIn & YouTube. I'm on fire!!

We've been in a transition period for the past couple of months working quietly behind the scenes. We've decided to skip blogger town and we're heading over to lands yonder. The past couple of months have been spent designing our new look and it's finally ready for you guys to see. Don't fret though, everything that's on this site will remain here for now but our new domain thehealthyirishman.com is where you'll find us from now on.
Those of you who bookmarked this site (hehealthyirishman@blogspot.com) will need to go ahead and bookmark thehealthyirishman.com instead or you'll be missing out on the brand new site.
So pack your bags, we're hittin' the road.

The H.I. at the IFF

Irish Film America (IFA) is a new organization dedicated to bringing the best of contemporary Irish film to US audiences providing a platform for Irish filmmakers to showcase their independently produced feature films, documentaries, short films and animation. In March 2008, IFA supported the San Francisco Irish Film Festival and The Seattle Irish Reels Festival. This past weekend it launched the Los Angeles Irish Film Festival at the Clarity Theater in Beverly Hills. We not only catered the opening night for 150 but we figured we might as well check out a few flicks on Saturday. It was not only a celebration of Irish movies but guests were also entertained by live 'fiddly diddly' traditional Irish music as well as a live theatre performance. For a minute I thought I was back at home except for the fact that it was 70 degrees outside. Here's some snippets of the opening night. By all accounts the festival was a great success.

We're back from 2 pint filled weeks home in Ireland and we've hit the ground running. Tomorrow night I'll be feeding the masses at the opening night of the LA Irish Film Festival. I have to say I'm thrilled to be a part of this event if nothing more than supporting my fellow Irishmen. (Who said I was done drinking anyway?)

Here's what I'll be serving up for the stars buffet style:
  • Atlantic Poached Salmon with Mary Rose Sauce
  • Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce 
  • Ballymaloe Quiche Piperonata
  • Potato & Spring Onion Salad tossed with French dressing Irish style
  • Carrot & Courgette Salad 
  • Citrus Lentil & Couscous Salad 
  • and of course Homemade Brown Soda Bread Scones
(Always good to have a little soakage for the pints!)

If you're into good indy flicks and are in LA check it out. I believe tickets are still available for Saturday and Sunday so be sure to check out their website or just click the link above.
