When asked about Irish food producing areas the Midlands is rarely the first place that comes to mind but did you know that we have our own honey, ice cream, yoghurts, sausages, cordials, cheese, chocolate, bread, chorizo …..to name but a few products
We have a wealth of food products from artisan producers to larger companies, some of them already household names and lots more that should be! Then we have the people who use all this wonderful produce – caterers, cookery schools, hotels, restaurants and of course the stores that stock it. And earlier this year I was part of a working group under the direction of Sarah Morgan from Midlands Ireland that produced the invaluable listing of all these in the ‘Midlands Food Directory’
For the Directory launch I was charged with coming up with a selection of canapés using as much local produce as possible and after a lot of fun in the kitchen here’s what we served on the night…
I’m delighted to say that all went down well with the mini cheesecake being a big hit 🙂
Since the launch I’ve had more than a few requests for the recipe so for a change and lots of fun we made a video showing how to make it . I hope you like it !
Happy Cooking !
