A Taste of Home is a food story from Ballyknocken House, nestled in the gentle rolling hills of Co. Wicklow, where generations of Catherine Fulvio’s family lived and farmed for over 100 years.
Combining modern Irish food with farm-to-for principles, Catherine takes on traditional Irish recipes and gives them her own twist to reflect the abundance of ingredients available on her doorstep.
From beef that has grazed on lush pasturelands and Wicklow lamb famous for its quality of flavour, to the delicious seafood available nearby her recipes include classic Irish family dishes such as beef and stout pies with potato pastry topping.
Other delicious offerings include lamb wellington with wild garlic, farmhouse soups with soda bread as well as Italian-style tomato, shallot and rosemary chicken hotpot, Ballyknocken dauphinoise potatoes and Catherine’s ‘to die for’ lemon meringue pie.
Using simple, fresh ingredients and set against the timeless backdrop of the Irish countryside, Catherine’s delicious, wholesome recipes celebrate the best ingredients Ireland has to offer.
