Goat, Beetroot, Carrot, Elderflower Gel, Edible Flowers

Goat, Beetroot, Carrot, Elderflower Gel, Edible Flowers
This recipe was inspired by a trip to Fallon & Byrne where I saw they were selling different coloured baby beetroots and then at the meat counter racks of Irish milk fed goat. I’ve written about the combination of lamb and elderflower before and given that goat has a similar, albeit stronger, flavour I knew ...

Freekeh, Beetroot, Kale, Pomegranate, Walnut
This recipe started life with a Georgian dish of aubergines stuffed with a spicy walnut paste I made a while back; it was quite good although I wasn’t too keen on the amount of vinegar but it did give me an idea for a sauce to go with an Ottolenghi style salad. I also wanted ...

Orecchiette With Beetroot Leaves

Orecchiette With Beetroot Leaves
This recipe is based on is the classic Pulgian dish Orecchiette alle Cime di Rapa which involves turnip tops and pasta being coated in an sauce made with absurd amounts of garlic, anchovies and olive oil; the reason I like it so much is because it’s such a great example of Southern Italian cucina povera, ...

Beetroot And Coconut Soup 4

Beetroot And Coconut Soup
I always think of beetroot as a winter vegetable but it actually comes into season in July so when I was on Moore Street to visit FXB’s I saw some huge bunches on sale at one of the stalls for only €2 and it immediately reminded me of a recipe I found on the BBC ...
