Ham Hock and Pea Soup

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Serve with some crusty bread.

Baked Mussel Risotto with Potatoes

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Test with knife pushed through the layers: it's ready when the potatoes are nearly tender and the rice is still a little 'al dente'.

Brioche Fruit Pudding

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This little dessert is a wonderful way to use up leftover bread, and in the winter, frozen berries work perfectly as a substitute for the fresh summer fruits.

Tomato, Ricotta and Thyme Tartlets with Summer Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Serve these individual tartlets with the best that the summer has to offer: baby salad leaves, soft herbs such as chives, basil and chervil and lots of beautiful edible flowers.

Dublin Lawyer

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This is a traditional method of serving lobster which is extremely delicious. If possible make this dish with a raw lobster, that is one which has been killed just before cooking by plunging a sharp instrument into the cross on the head. However, a lightly cooked lobster can be used and will still be extremely good.

Honey Roast Smoked Salmon with Crispy Potato Cakes and Asparagus Curls

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This is my version of Eggs Benedict which is a poached egg served on a crispy potato cake that gets baked in the oven slice of brioche and a warm butter sauce, which is much lighter than Hollandaise. It is also fantastic served with slices of hand carved cooked ham or crispy bacon.

Irish Omelette

From: Kitchen Hero: Rediscovering The Irish Kitchen

This might come as a surprise to some people, but I found this recipe in an 18th-century manuscript, spelt 'amulet' (maybe it was considered lucky to eat it), and it is extremely good and filling.

Gur Cake

From: Kitchen Hero: Rediscovering The Irish Kitchen

This can be made with stale cake rather than bread if preferred, in which case omit the dried fruit.

Braised Rabbit

From: Kitchen Hero: Rediscovering The Irish Kitchen

Rabbit was a great food for country people for many years.
