Des’ Coddle

Des’ Coddle Challenge

Des is a reader of our column on the Sunday world and we appreciate every comment we get. We thought that this particular comment was very heartfelt by Des so we decided to give it a go at his version of the Dublin Coddle!
In his word
'As a proud Dub and Coddle Enthusiast, I am getting plain sick and tired of woke Culchie f—-rs trying to ambush our favourite dishes and trying to shape them into some sort of hipster appetiser. It’s basically anything Pale, hence its proud origins. {…} I’m Surprised he didn’t include Couscous. Please pass this on to the chef, and let him know he is now on my list of enemies. Good day Sir.'
We hope Des will still read us and remove Kevin from his enemies list!
