Belgian Madeira Sauce with Mushrooms, Buttery Beef Fillet and Irish Boxty

Belgian Madeira Sauce with Mushrooms, Buttery Beef Fillet and Irish Boxty

Time for my last recipe from my collaboration with Kerrygold Belgium 2017! Just like last year I was challenged to create a couple of Belgian classics but add an Irish twist to them. First I made 'Halloween cupcakes with Kerrygold butter, pumpkin spices, pomegranate drops, buttercream and fondant ghosts', then 'Basil & chives potato waffles with chorizo, mascarpone and butter-honey sauce' and now for my final recipe…

Tipperary Honey & Coconut Oat Bars

Tipperary Honey & Coconut Oat Bars

I recently got this lovely jar of local Tipperary honey as a gift, and as I'm big fan of supporting local and artisan producers, I decided to make a little recipe with it. With Christmas just around the corner I would recommend anyone to go and discover some local products and to buy and shop locally. There is such a vast amount of small producers that might live around the…

Easy spelt honey & herb loaf

Easy spelt honey & herb ciabatta

Step by step I'm trying out new techniques and ways of making different kinds of bread. One weekend I was really craving some bruschetta but I didn't have any ciabatta or baguettes in the house so I decided to look at some recipes and try to make my own spelt loaf. It's not quite the same as ciabatta as there are no holes in this bread, but I'll be…

Basil & chives potato waffles with chorizo, mascarpone and butter-honey sauce

A delicious Belgian waffle with whipped cream, fresh fruit and powdered sugar: oh isn't that a treat? It's no wonder Belgium is known around the world for their waffles. But even though they are usually considered to be a sweat treat, you can get very creative with these waffles, which is exactly what I decided to do. Even though I had never eaten them myself, I decided to give this Belgian…

Sweet potato croquettes

Sweet potato croquettes

Confession time: I love croquettes, oh my god do I love them! Every time I go to a restaurant and it's an option as a side instead of fries I'll order it, guaranteed. The crunchy outside and the soft mashy inside are just such a joy to eat! Unfortunately for me croquettes are a lot more popular in Belgium/France/The Netherlands than they are here in Ireland and the UK but…

Light & crispy Belgian waffles

Light & crispy Belgian waffles

If you've ever been in Belgium, there will surely be one thing you must have noticed: their love of good food! Being Belgian myself I grew up with the best fries, waffles and chocolates to name a few, but I must admit I had never attempted to make waffles myself, never even had a waffle iron/maker! But I finally got one and I just couldn't wait to make my very…

Homemade chicken curry spread

Homemade chicken curry spread

Anyone who's ever lived or visited Belgium, knows that there is one type of lunch we are mad for: 'Smoskes', which is a Flemish term for a roll or a piece of French baguette topped with various types of salads or spreads. The bun of the 'Smoske' is first spread with mayonnaise and then topped with vegetables (usually lettuce, tomatoes, sliced carrot and cucumbers) and sliced ​​hard-boiled egg. The…
