Easy Food March hits shops on Friday March 1st, and there are plenty of oh-so-tasty reasons to grab your copy!
1. Bacon and cabbage, remixed!
We like to celebrate all things Irish all year round, but especially every March, What better way to do it than with these fun twists on traditional bacon and cabbage? We’ve been using this fab food combo in everything from pies to pasta. (The croquettes are the absolute business.)
2. Back to the butcher
Our butcher Michael Fleming is chatting about traditional Irish meat dishes like black pudding, braised beef cheeks and steak and kidney pie, with a steaming bowl of Dublin coddle thrown in for good measure.
3. Seaside superfood
We’re exploring seaweed, Ireland’s all-natural superfood that has the power to do you the world of good — and tastes delicious, too!
Continuing in our Paddy’s Day parade, Recipe Editor Jocelyn Doyle is raising a glass to Irish resilience and chatting to Morgan Ging of Ballykeefe Distillery about the revival of poitín and his gorgeous product.
5. Absolutely minted
We’re bringing some freshness into our spring kitchen with in-season mint. We can’t get enough of the way it livens up both sweet and savoury dishes. Just look at this stunning minted dark chocolate tart!

We’ve included some of our new favourite ways to cook with seasonal spring onions, leeks and spring cabbage.
