Having finished our immune boosting two weeks of nourishing food, the next 2 two weeks I am going to concentrate on using the larder of Irish natural ingredients and turning them into everyday family dishes. I am sure I will put a ‘ twist & spin ‘ on some, but there again that is part & parcel of the way I cook.
I will explore our wonderful meat, fish, poultry, dairy, Artisan Irish cheeses, Irish grown fruit & vegetables and create some exciting and as always nutritious meals.
