Simple Zesty Fish Cakes With Sheep's Yogurt

Simple Zesty Fish Cakes With Sheep's Yogurt

These are lovely in warm or cold weather and can be prepared in advance. Serve with a tossed green salad, or potatoes. The creaminess of the yogurt perfectly compliments the crunch of the toasted pine nuts and lemony fish.  You also don’t have to be very precise with the ingredients and can add and subtract according to taste, for example sometimes we like to add a bit of chili and ginger. All you really need to worry about is to make sure the mixture sticks together before frying.

Nettle Soup Served With Velvet Cloud Porridge Bread

Nettle Soup Served With Velvet Cloud Porridge Bread

This wonderful very old Irish soup recipe was inspired by Chef Jess Murphy of Kai, from her recent feature in Food and Wine Magazine(March 2021)

Nettles are best gathered in March, April and May, just before they come into flower. We are lucky we have plenty of them particularly around the edges of the farm in spring. Pick only young, sweet, tender leaves from the top of each plant. Older leaves tend to be bitter. Leaves can be dried or frozen but are better used fresh.

Porridge Bread With Sheep's Milk Yogurt

Porridge Bread With Sheep's Milk Yogurt

Porridge bread is by far the most requested and popular recipe we have ever featured. It is really really hard to get wrong. You can add and adapt according to your taste. Some people like to sweeten it with dried fruits, honey etc. Others like to swap out some oats for spelt or whole meal flour. We just like to keep it simple, and in our opinion porridge bread is the new banana bread, and much better for you.
