1. French Onion Soup

A true French classic that is wonderfully satisfying to make at home.  This recipe always conjures up a memory I have of being bundled into a Parisien cafe by my mother to hide from the dark and wet weather outside. At the back of a thickly carpeted room with plush red velvet curtains I got my first taste of this comforting soup.

2. Chicken Noodle Soup

The key to any chicken soup is the broth, and this vietnamese inspired chicken noodle soup is no difference. Charring the ginger and onion does sound rather an unnecessary  undertaking but it’s this addition, along with toasted spices, which makes a beautifully rich and aromatic broth.

3. Beef & Guinness Stew

Beef and Guinness stew is a perfect dish for a cold autumn day. You can serve this as a stew or take it one step further and use it as the filling for an impressive pie. Do make sure the meat is tender before serving, different cuts of meat will take longer cooking times.

4. Croatian Fish Stew

I can never understand when people say the don’t like seafood. I absolutely love it and wish more people would give it a chance, especially with the abundance of world class fish available in Ireland. This fish stew is something I had in Croatia but can absolutely be replicated at home.

5. Chicken Dumpling Soup

For a soup like this which relies heavily on the taste of the broth, it is well worth seeking out the best quality stock you can get your hands on, homemade is best but I often rely on Kalo Organic chicken stock cubes if I don’t have the time.
