  1. It all sounds delicious, I agree with you on the chicken, the simpler the better:)

    Chocolate? Wow. That sounds like my kind of bread and butter pudding!

  3. Kate says:

    I love the Glenilen youghurts too! especially the raspberry ones. For any Dublin readers you can get them in F&B, Supervalu in Churchtown or Dunnes Stores @ the Beacon.

  4. If you have a good chicken, then you don’t need to do too much to it, do you Laura? One of the things that I’ve noticed about my post-Ballymaloe cooking is that I have much more confidence about doing things simply, as well as more knowledge about when something is cooked, rather than cooking the bejaysus out of it.Thought you might like the chocolate connection, Kieran!Those little pots of Glenilen yoghurt and fruit compote are positively addictive. I used to get them in Morton’s of Ranelagh – especially good for picnic days.

    Hi CarolineGreg Malouf now produces his own range of Turkish Delight ( am yet to try it but I very much like his spice mixes. I doubt this is available in Ireland, but if you’d like some, drop me a line and I’ll send you a packet!

  6. Sarah says:

    I love the Glenilen range too. Have you tried their butter??? Yum! And they do fab cheesecakes!

  7. That’s very kind of you Plum! Haven’t you got your hands entirely full these days, with the plum blossom and the plum baby? We’d have to do a trade – is there anything that you would be interested in getting sent from Ireland? I’ve been watching Greg Malouf’s career with interest – I keep seeing Saha in bookshops over here and hope that some enlightened publisher will do European editions of Arabesque and Moorish .I have tasted the Glenilen butter, Sarah – and you’re right, yum sums it up! The cheesecakes look gorgeous but I’m sticking to the fruit yoghurts if I want a special treat at the moment.
