The story of the Wexford rissole

WATERFORD is famous for the blah, Dublin has its spice burger and Wexford has the rissole.

But where did this spiced potato cake come from and how did it become such a staple of Wexford's culinary life? Everyone has an opinion on what constitutes the best rissole and whether it should be battered or breaded.

The story of the Wexford rissole will be told by author Shane Dunphy as part of the Curious Ear documentary series on RTÉ 1 radio next weekend.

He talks to a group of Wexford rissole experts in a programme that contains social comment and saturated fats.

The Story of the Wexford Rissole will be aired at 6.45 p.m. on Radio 1 on Saturday and at 7.45 p.m. on Sunday.
