Tom Keogh, managing director of Keogh’s Family Farm is passionate about potatoes! “We are the only potato growers in the world who offer fresh potatoes and potato crisps from the same farm side by side in the same store and we sleep, eat, breathe potato crisps and potatoes!” he says.

The family have been growing potatoes in north county Dublin for over 200 years. The city of Dublin has grown around the farm over the years!  Continue reading »

Campari and Grapefruit Cake

A post by Aoife - Babaduck at Babaduck

One of the first drinks I had in France at the tender age of 16 was Campari.  I loved the ruby red colour but thought it tasted unbelievably bitter (to be fair, it was served with tonic, so what do you expect).  Over the years as my tastebuds have changed, I've come to appreciate the sharpness and sourness and I love it with grapefruit.  Continue reading »

Three-Cheese Lasagne

A post by Joanna Carley at DonalSkehan.com

I cry a little bit inside when I see ready meal lasagnes cut in brick-like wedges, ready for the microwave. A really good lasagne is truly a thing of beauty and should be treated as such. They take time, effort and love and the end result should be layers of rich meat sauce, creamy white sauce and perfectly cooked pasta. There are many different variations on this classic and this one features a rich white sauce with three different cheeses, which adds a wonderful dimension to the dish.  Continue reading »

Liberty Tasting
“Before you go, you have to try the Justino’s Madeira Colheita 1996,” she said.

I saw she was serious so, before she’d make a song and dance about it, I thought I’d better try the wine. Oh, it was fabulous.  Continue reading »

The excellent ely Wine Bar

When the folks at Dublin’s ely Wine Bars  go home to Clare they collect most of their meat from the family farm and get the lamb from the farm next door on Craggy Island. In Ely Place (Dublin), we had some of that lamb last evening and it was a highlight, slow cooked and superb. And a huge choice of well priced wines to choose from.

We had started with a glass of sherry and were soon into our starters.  Continue reading »
