For gifts this Christmas we have a range of beautiful hampers for those who love to cook, those that love to eat and the eco-concious. You can find our full range of hampers in our deli or our online shop. W...

As I imagine (and hope!) many of you know, Dvir and I opened our deli on Main Street in Tramore nearly 8 weeks ago. It took an extraordinary amount of work to get our new premises gutted, fitted out and ready to open the doors but we were so glad when they did!

Dvir and I have been making our Middle Eastern mezze ( salads, dips, & breads served at the start of a meal or as a meal in itself like tapas) for nearly 4 years. We've prepared foods for farmers mark...

A selection of quick & tasty recipes and ideas to add some Middle Eastern warmth to your meals using our newly launched spice blends. Follow the Irish food gurus John and Sally McKenna:

New Years Day 2019 you don't expect much to happen except the recovery from the previous nights' events, if you were lucky enough to celebrate, but I got a message from a friend asking if I had seen our McKennas' Guide review. I was in the wilds of West Cork at the time with little internet access so I scrambled to the corner of the house with network and frantically searched online for the review. Thus ensued my stupid crazy happy dance in the kitchen when...

I'm a bit crap at the whole food photography thing - exhibit A above so I've taken to Instagram and Pinterest to try help a little with my food styling education. And as you know, as owners of a small business we have to do and be everything including photographers and food stylists!

Anyhoo, during my research I came across something wonderous - The Grazing Platter. It's perfect for me - nothing is precise or perfect with loads of different colours, flavours...
