I’d eat that!

The most intriguing part for me was, of course, dessert. Mainly, the “Irish apple balsamic vinegar meringue.” I had a look and it seems that its made with the only balsamic vinegar made IN Ireland, and is made entirely of apples (6kg per 1 litre bottle!). I still don’t know what the dessert looks like or how it’s compiled but I now have a new ingredient to seek out! Much more local than the Italian stuff!

Heres a link to the actual product:
