Boxty Pancakes

As a proud Fermanagh native, my dad has been making boxty for as long as I can remember. He tried several versions on us before we settled on the boxty pancakes here, which are a revelation – light, savoury, flavoursome; the definition of ‘more-than-the-sum-of-its-parts’ food.

No-Knead Bread (AKA, Your Best Ever Loaf)

Chances are you’ve probably seen or tasted a version of Jim Lahey’s glorious ‘No-Knead’ bread over the last little while. Although it’s baked in a casserole pot, it turns out a crisp, crackled exterior with a stunningly fluffy crumb every single time. It’s also very straightforward to make once you know the steps, meaning it’s an ideal option for even complete bread-making novices.
