🌾 Visit an Irish Flour Mill
Dunany Flour Mill
Just like the flatbreads of the Middle East, or cornbread from the plains of North America, Irish baking culture is deeply rooted in the natural features of the terrain. Both the flora and the fauna resulted in a style of hardy, yet rich bread that was baked out of love. The texture and flavour of the loaves come from the very soil that birthed them, not just the culinary fashions of the period. Watch as Andrew and Leonie from Dunany Flour explain more about their production process as a small-scale Irish supplier.
🍞 Kevin's Field Kitchen
Irish Potato Bread
If you can’t get enough of Irish baking try your hand at Kevin’s classic potato bread recipe. It’s a great way to use up leftover mashed potato and can even be turned into burger buns. Kevin Dundon’s recipes are designed to be easily adaptable and are a great way to explore deeper into the cuisine.
