Courgette and Cumin Soup

APPETISERS Irish Potato Stuffing

Irish Potato Stuffing recipe

Potato is used in a traditional Irish stuffing which can be used to stuff pork. We use thyme but you can also use sage or parsley or a mixture of all three.


Potato soup with Bacon

A staple in the repertoire of traditional Irish cooking. White pepper is used in this recipe but you can replace it with finely ground black pepper though you will see black specks in the finished soup.


Light French Onion Soup
