The Best Way to a Girl’s Heart

October 19th, 2015 | Uncategorized

Food. That universal substance alone can spark conversation and bond strangers into friends. There is no cultural barrier with food and its existence is a simple way to bring people together. Why? Because who doesn’t LOVE food.


My roommates and I are located directly across an all guys apartment and one of the guys, Fergal, is a chef who loves inviting us girls over to eat a hearty meal. Fergal is a culinary student at WIT but to be honest, he should just quit school and open up his own restaurant because his food is OFF THE WALL. All of us are usually too busy with our full schedule for us to come over as much as Fergal invites us, yet that doesn’t stop him from dropping it off at our apartment for us to devour later.


So far, Fergal has made crème brûlée, chocolate fondant and sticky toffee pudding and each time Katie, Maidy and I jokingly faint in awe at the delicious flavors mixed up into a bowl of heaven. For all my males out there, take notes from Fergal because it is food, not roses, that keep girls stupefied by your charm.


This time, Fergal decided to cook us a real dinner aside from his dessert dishes. Thanksgiving, an American Holiday of appreciation celebrated in November, came a little early for Katie and I. Fergal chefed up a turkey with stuffing, cheesy cauliflower, baked parsnip, roasted potatoes, and a creamy mushroomed gravy poured on top for Katie, Maidy and I along with his roommates Mo and Adrian. The dinner was absolutely incredible and we all were completely stuffed. However, Adrian baked Fergal’s sticky toffee pudding recipe so not making room for dessert was not an option (not that any of us were complaining). By far, Fergal’s invitation was the best meal and dessert I have had by far in Ireland and can’t wait to see what he will cook for us next time…
