Tiramisu - Pick me Up Tiramisu - Pick me Up By Foodborn and Bred 12/21/14 22:04 Tiramisu or Pick me Up (translated) is an Italian dessert. More often than not, in Italy, it doesn't contain any alcohol. Personally, I think it's the kick that makes it. I've tried all sorts of alcohol but have decided that Martinique rum is the business...
A Christmas Tale A Christmas Tale By Foodborn and Bred 12/19/14 19:44 It was a competition in the Irish Times. Send in a photo of your favourite Christmas bauble and tell the story behind it. It implied a much loved, battered old family heirloom. Something passed down through generations perhaps. I had been thinking about...

Balsamic Pickled Onions Balsamic Pickled Onions By Foodborn and Bred 11/15/14 18:41 Have to confess I have never pickled onions before but when a Twitter pal, Sian offered to send me a recipe, I decided to have a go.

How Free Range is your Turkey How Free Range is your Turkey By Foodborn and Bred 11/06/14 13:59 Www.keaveyeats.com Have you ever wondered why intensive free range turkeys all seem to congregate at the door of their huge sheds? I always have. I had assumed it was because they were institutionalised and didn't want to leave the heat of the shed. But...
Feast Raising for Kilkenny Town of Food Feast Raising for Kilkenny Town of Food By Foodborn and Bred 10/28/14 15:09 Feast raising - the act of feasting for a good cause. I'm not sure who's genius idea this was, but it is genius. I got a surprise invite to Kilkenny on the Sunday of the October Bank Holiday weekend for the night. Now, I don't need very much encouragement...

Autumnal Apple Cake Autumnal Apple Cake By Foodborn and Bred 10/02/14 23:05 Apple pear and almond cake Tis' the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. Trust Keats to sum it up so succinctly.

Water Water Everywhere Water Water Everywhere By Foodborn and Bred 10/01/14 14:49 There's been lots of talk lately about water, water charges and water meters. Understandably, there is also lots of confusion but one thing is sure, no one is going to pour water down the drain anymore. I have a shallow bore well here, hand dug probably...

Copper and Spice and All Things Nice Copper and Spice and All Things Nice By Foodborn and Bred 09/20/14 13:15 Many years ago I lived in Lancaster in England amongst a large Asian community. Our corner shop was a cornucopia of spices and strangely shaped vegetables and the patron was a turboned, smiley man always bemused by me picking stuff up and sniffing it and...
Blackberry and Elderberry Jelly Blackberry and Elderberry Jelly By Foodborn and Bred 09/16/14 12:08 I was determined to have a lazy Sunday recently and not spend it in a whilrwind of cooking, baking, cleaning, listening to LyricFm and trying to read Saturday's paper.

Mullagh Fair Day Mullagh Fair Day By Foodborn and Bred 09/13/14 20:23 PHOTOS - Mullagh Fair Day slideshow A sense of colour, carnival and crowd hits you when you crest the hill that rises above the town. Followed closely by the smells of food and farmyard intermingling. It's that time of year again, when Mullagh showcases...
Courgette Spaghetti Courgette Spaghetti By Foodborn and Bred 08/30/14 23:02 Really simple to make. Almost therapeutic. And you do not need a spiraliser unless you are really, really uptight about getting even strips. Wash, dry, top and tail your courgette. Try get a straight one. A curly one makes life much more difficult. So we...
Blackberry Vinegar Blackberry Vinegar By Foodborn and Bred 08/24/14 18:00 To begin with it helps to save a few vinegar bottles. I find the SuperValu range very good as the shaker thingies come out easily for cleaning. Also the labels are easily removed. There is nothing more annoying than labels that you have to scrape and soak...

I had also got some fresh seafood bought for me in a fabulous fish shop in Navan by the chef. Sometimes he does nice stuff for me. So what to do only throw it all together. Apart from being disorganised...
A Taste of Cavan - The Future is The Past A Taste of Cavan - The Future is The Past By Foodborn and Bred 08/09/14 13:06 For me it began in the Olde Post Inn with a World War One commemorative seven course tasting menu. Edwardian dress was optional but many took part and dressed for the occasion, not least the two men in army uniform standing at the door with sack sandbags...
Eat This Not That Eat This Not That By Foodborn and Bred 08/08/14 11:43 Image from www.menshealth.co.uk A discussion on processed diet food recently where a manufacturer stated that theirs contain no additives, got me thinking. The definition of an additive is: something added to food to preserve it or enhance it's flavour...
Pork Loin  with Fresh Apricot and Walnut Stuffing Pork Loin with Fresh Apricot and Walnut Stuffing By Foodborn and Bred 07/29/14 22:37 Until I started rearing my own pigs I had only ever experienced dry and tough pork fillet no matter how I cooked it. Pork fillet from an outdoor reared pig is a different animal. It is tender, moist and so tasty. I had found this one in the depths of my...
