Add to Basket

Bread & Butter is a nostalgic tribute to the simplicities of home-baking. The recipes reflect an Irish food heritage, with basic local ingredients and fresh produce. Celebrating the skill to make a lot from a little, the story of our ancestors is told through the food they created to nourish their families and the many visitors associated with life on the farm, conjuring a romantic insight into a loving home, with the stove at its heartbeat.

The recipes are split into the four seasons, as this seasonal rhythm dictated the produce available for the kitchen. A seemingly harsh country lifestyle is illustrated through romantic aromas of hearty bread and mouthfuls of sweet, sticky cakes.
