New Video – Coffee Bean Halva

I have a new YouTube channel up, so check it out here for inspiration on the latest freaky superfoods.  Please do hit the subscribe button, and if you’ve got any comments or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you. Maybe you have a recipe you want me to do, like coconut milk yoghurt? (coming soon!) […]

Wens Feb 25th, final supper club (sold out)

Wens Feb 25th, final supper club (sold out)

A final date for our Supper Club at Harvey Nichols, before I hibernate. Irish Times food writer, Domini Kemp, and I plan on hot-wiring your battery. After your 3 course supper, you will be levitating with vitamins. We’ll start with a spicy immune-boosting soup, followed by a massive superfood salad with creamy goji dressing and […]

Gluten-free Chickpea Crepes

Gluten-free Chickpea Crepes

If Ebola doesn’t get us, gluten will. Nah, just kidding. GSOH folks! Gluten is not a poison – let’s get that straight.  Gluten is not unhealthy either. For most people, gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye and barley) is more than tolerable. It’s bleedin’ great. Gluten is what makes baguettes fluffy and donuts spongy. […]

Chilli Chocolate Mousse & other aphrodisiacs

Chilli Chocolate Mousse & other aphrodisiacs

Something to help you out this evening. Mother Nature’s best aphrodisiacs …     You can find my recipe for a rather, erm, stimulating Chilli Chocolate Mousse in TheJournal today, and on page 239 of The Extra Virgin Kitchen.  It’s mousse like no other. Happy Valentine’s Day!   (photography Jo Murphy)         […]

Barbie Fudge

Barbie Fudge

My giddy four year old came up with this recipe, when he accidentally dropped a small jar of beetroot powder into the pot while I was making a halva-style fudge.  MacGyver has competition. Dynamite stuff. Sesame are mighty little seeds. They are practically belching with B vitamins, the ones responsible for energy ignition and brain […]

Wednesday February 11th, Supper Club (SOLD OUT)

Wednesday February 11th, Supper Club (SOLD OUT)

Another date for our Supper Club! The last one sold out in a few hours (eh, yez must have been very bad to your livers over Christmas). Domini Kemp and I plan on fox trotting some serious nutrition back into your body. We’ll start with a spicy immune-boosting soup, followed by a massive superfood salad […]

Big Bowl of Mexico

Big Bowl of Mexico

This is the only vegetable that sounds like an exciting substance. Maybe that’s why everyone loves a pepper.  Most other veggies are used in a pejorative sense. Turnip reminds us of our Taoiseach. Pumpkin is one of the clumsy twits from a children’s novel. Aubergine belongs to a thousand bridesmaid dresses. And tomato is the […]

Guess what? I can cook for you this evening!  Camile Thai home delivery in Dublin have asked me to design an Asian dish for their menu. It’s only available for 6 weeks, to help kick start your New Year resolutions without sacrificing your time or your taste buds. I made them a superfood satay sauce […]

Nut Milk Demo @ Alchemy Juice Bar

Nut Milk Demo @ Alchemy Juice Bar

How are those pesky New Year resolutions going?  Let me show you a simple one that will change your life. It is THE SNAZZ (and so much easier than giving up those deliciously addictive phone aps as I stupidly agreed to, in, oh, just our biggest national paper. Fuzzy Duck!)     Saturday 31st, 10:30 […]

Cooking with Donal, and raw chocolate

Cooking with Donal, and raw chocolate

Apparently, women think about chocolate more than men. Some scientists think this is because eating cacao helps release a cavalry of dopamine in the female brain, the same substance released during orgasm. It’s even been suggested that when women eat raw chocolate, it affects activity in the cerebral hemisphere responsible for regulating sexual desire. Just […]
