Christmas Feast: Honey and Soy Sesame Carrots

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Of course, these carrots could also be roasted in the oven in the glaze but Christmas is a time when oven space is often at a premium so I've decided to blanch them first and then finish them in a hot wok.

Howth Head Seafood Chowder

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

My home town of Howth is famous throughout Ireland for its fish. Along the west pier there are plenty of fishmongers to choose some of the freshest fish for supper. This wonderfully creamy seafood chowder always reminds me of home and with a few slices of brown bread with Irish salted butter, I'm there in an instant.

Meat Marinades

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

These marinades are super with any meat. I sometimes mix the marinades in a resealable plastic bag, then drop in the meat, seal up the bag, give it all a good squish and pop in the fridge or freezer until I'm ready to use it. Most meat will be good in the fridge for three days or in the freezer for up to three months, still sitting in the marinade.
