When I first moved to Ireland I was baffled and slightly horrified by the coleslaw/ham and coleslaw/cheese combo. In South Africa I'd only ever had coleslaw as a salad with a 'braai' (BBQ). Now I secretly enjoy this mayonnaisey concoction on a crusty roll! A real superfood, cabbage is such an integral part of Irish cuisine that I decided to give coleslaw the ish makeover. Use red cabbage, add another Irish superfood-seaweed- and lots super seeds and sprouted seeds and you have a super slaw. The dressing in this recipe is a lighter, zingier alternative to plain mayonnaise.

This is our version of eggs Benedict: a poached egg served on brioche with bacon and a butter sauce, which is much lighter than Hollandaise. We also give customers the option of having it with smoked salmon, or with spinach as the vegetarian option.
