Lucky for us Eoin brought in some delicious brown bread for us last week, which triggered a whole new set of memories in my mind. My freshman year in high school I was fortunate enough to travel to Ireland with my school wind ensemble. The first morning we were there we were served the traditional Irish breakfast complete with brown bread. It was love at first bite. For WEEKS I tried to bake, buy and find the same taste in brown breads, but was never satisfied. I gave up my search almost immediately because I was disheartened by my attempts and lack of cloning abilities. This was the first time I felt like I was transported back in time to that first breakfast in Europe. Proof food is a source of great memories!
