One evening she was coming over for dinner and arrived with a big...
Fig and Apple Compote Fig and Apple Compote By Foodborn and Bred 09/24/14 22:29 Fig and apple compoteOn a recent trip to visit some friends, I came home with bags of autumn bounty. They have a ruin nearby with a walled garden overflowing with fruit trees. Figs, apples and Spanish chesnuts. We couldn't reach the chesnuts and the figs...
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. I decided to go for a walk instead with the dogs and just happened to look up. I mean...
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...
Squid Ink Pasta with Seafood and Samphire Squid Ink Pasta with Seafood and Samphire By Foodborn and Bred 08/16/14 16:32 Lidl are apparently selling squid ink pasta at the moment. 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...
Summer Fish Pie with a Potato Rosti Topping Summer Fish Pie with a Potato Rosti Topping By Foodborn and Bred 07/27/14 12:07 You tend to think of fish pie as a winter warmer but I love it and wanted to make it more summery. I looked up a few recipes and patched this together from them all. It is so good I think I will make it this way from now on. The rosti topping gives a lovely...
Farming on the Ditch Farming on the Ditch By Foodborn and Bred 07/17/14 19:59 When I moved to live outside a small village in a rural area over twenty years ago I knew nothing about farming. I couldn't have told you the difference between sileage and straw. I still wouldn't be great on crop identification but farming in this area...
Sunday Cookoff Sunday Cookoff By Foodborn and Bred 07/13/14 16:32 We have here in Ireland a pretty unique competition run via Twitter every Sunday. Entered by amateurs, judged by a busy professional for no prize or gain other than a nod and an acknowlegement from the said professional. Mad eh? Sunday Cookoff is where...
Soda Sliders Soda Sliders By Foodborn and Bred 06/30/14 16:39 Don't you just love when a food becomes trendy? Sliders - well we have had cupcakes, pulled pork and cronuts already! Anyway it basically means a small sandwich. I didn't feel much like cooking but knew I had some crabmeat in the fridge. Home made mayonnaise...
Strawberry & Strawberry and Rhubarb Jam Strawberry & Strawberry and Rhubarb Jam By Foodborn and Bred 06/28/14 18:27 It's strawberry season and rhubarb is just finishing off. It's no coincidence that these fruits (well okay fruit and vegetable) go magnificently well together. So make the most of both and either get crumbling or make jam. I bought a 4kg box of jam strawberries...
Cherry Clafoutis with a Kick Cherry Clafoutis with a Kick By Foodborn and Bred 06/25/14 16:43 You just have to love summer. It pays to wait and buy seasonal fruit and veg. It tastes better. It looks better and it is better. And best of all, if you only have it when it's in season you appreciate it. Is there anything less desirable in the depths...
Coffee and Walnut Cake Coffee and Walnut Cake By Foodborn and Bred 06/20/14 20:46 There are times when only a good old fashioned cake will do. The slightly bockety homemade cakes of my youth. I always loved coffee cake and like my coffee, I like it strong and dark. It should taste of coffee. When we were young at home this was always...
Gluten Free Gluten Free By Foodborn and Bred 06/12/14 14:50 First attempt at no knead sourdoughIt is not surprising that so many people say they are gluten intolerant. Admittedly there are many who have no idea even what it is, as seen on a video that went viral on Facebook recently. However, people are complaining...
Are We Living Longer Are We Living Longer By Foodborn and Bred 06/05/14 23:56 I started to listen with interest to a topic on Sean Moncrieff's afternoon programme on Newstalk the other day. He was interviewing an expert on Alzheimer's and Dementia. As the interview progressed I went from interest to disbelief. He said that we were...
