Sea Salt & Banana Ice Cream

Sea Salt & Banana Ice Cream

Did you know we can arm our brain with certain nutrients to get our neurotransmitters raving? This ice cream nails it. “In every great production, there are hundreds of people behind the scenes that support the main players” writes Dr Hyla Cass, former Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA Medical School. “The same is […]

Chilled Mango & Egyptian Gibna

Chilled Mango & Egyptian Gibna

I am snooping around the city for my supply of Indian and Pakistani mangoes, like a crazed version of an only slightly less bonkers self. Every store I go to, they’re sold out. These chaps are the Imelda May of mangos – perfumed and honeyed with inimitable attitude. Intoxicating stuff. Generally, Pakistani and Indian mangos […]

New-dles … and a kickass harissa

New-dles … and a kickass harissa

Move over kale. Courgette is here with its own range of kitchen appliances. That’s right. Sales of spiralisers in Dublin are tailing sales of teapots. To the tea drinkers of Ireland, this might constitute a national threat. Spiralisers are those dinky kitchen gadgets that can twist and turn a courgette into glorious ribbons of vegetable […]

Pina Kaleada

Pina Kaleada

  I really dig Jamie Oliver’s online channel, DrinksTube. You will too. Over the last few days I’ve learned how to make cold brew coffee with kitchen paper, nail a recipe for me own home-made cola, and submit to world champion free-runner Tim Shieff. Gah! Why haven’t I subscribed sooner than this??? Head on over. […]

Probiotic Brownies

Probiotic Brownies

I’m with Roseanne Barr. I don’t know why people hate PMT. It’s the only time of the month when I can actually be myself.  These pecan brownies contain zinc, a fancy mineral our body needs to manufacture hormones. Think of hormones as the call centre for mood, and for hundreds of other intricate biological processes […]

Lemon Shizzle Cake

Lemon Shizzle Cake

Botox Baking This sticky citrus cake is practically belching with age-defying vitamins like E, C and plant-based calcium. Its fantastical glow comes from a spice called turmeric, more recently referred to as poor man’s saffron. Turmeric delivers a cargo of anti-inflammatory artillery for squeaky bones and damaged skin. Not bad for a cáca milis. We […]

Mojito cheesecake and raw honey

Mojito cheesecake and raw honey

Fist. Bumping. Gorgeous. This is a fresh, nostril-dancing, creamy dessert.  You can store individual slices in the freezer for up to 3 months. But it’s not designed to yield leftovers.     I found the most extraordinary bee sanctuary in Tipperary, where the apiarist practically reads the bees bedtime stories.  The hives are located on […]

Camu Camu Cake

Camu Camu Cake

Camu camu is the latest health industry pom-pom. This Amazonian fruit has explosive amounts of vitamin C, more than a crate of smug oranges and lemons. Take that, Centrum. And for the sake of eternal youth, I did have fun road-testing it. You’ll find an arsenal of vitamin C in this cake (ginger, lemon, camu […]
