Pumpkin carving, monkey nuts, lots of comfort cooking and Autumn baking are all ahead of us in October. This month on the blog, I have lots of new recipes, competitions, and tips to make the best of all October has to offer.
After a very busy September which had me traveling up and down the country giving cookery demonstrations, I'm looking forward to settling down to start work on my third book which will be released next year.
October brings with it lots of seasonal produce to get excited about and in this month's update, I'm focusing in on pumpkins, wild mushrooms and an Irish favourite, kale. Of course there is much more to get excited about, so head out and scour farmers markets, butchers, fishmongers, and local shops for lot's of seasonal inspiration.
There are two episodes left of the new season of Kitchen Hero on Monday nights on RTÉ One at 8.30pm, you can find all the details and recipes from each episode by following the episode guide. Make sure to tune in and spread the word!
Pick up the Irish Independent the week before Halloween for some of my favourite spooky recipes and also the November issue of Food & Wine out this month for lots of delicious winter warming soup recipes.
