Agri Aware and well-known TV chef and best-selling food author, Edward Hayden have teamed up to launch a new online cookery series called From Field to Fork Recipes.
The series, which will be posted on Agri Aware’s social media platforms and website from Tuesday, June 9th to Friday, June 12th, will feature short cookery demos given by Edward Hayden of simple and healthy meals with the main ingredients for each meal hailing from 100% Irish, Bord Bia Quality Assured, family farms.
This exciting, new social media series comes at a time where families have increased food shopping and home cooking in recent months due to the country’s lockdown period.
Recipes included in the series are: Slow Cooked Pork in Cider and Mustard, Homemade Beef Burgers, Chicken and Chorizo Spaghetti and Chargrilled Lamb Chops with Garlic and Herb Butter.
Edward Hayden, who runs his own cookery school and who is a TV regular on Virgin Media’s popular Ireland AM show said that he was delighted to take part in the new series with Agri Aware as he thinks it’s important for chefs to promote Irish produce to consumers.
“We have some of the world’s best food producers, in this country, producing food to a very high quality, exercising the greatest levels of professional and culinary integrity to ensure that the food being produced in people’s homes is to the highest possible standard,” said Edward.
“Obviously families are very busy at this time of year but if they take time to prepare these quick and tasty meals they will be fuelling their bodies.”
Speaking about this new series, Agri Aware chairman Alan Jagoe stated : “We are delighted to present this exciting, new series which showcases the very best of meat, dairy and vegetables hailing from 100% Irish and Bord Bia Quality Assured family farms. The aim of the series is to highlight to busy families that it is possible to make healthy and quick meals even when you have a busy lifestyle," said Mr Jagoe.
“These meals are hearty and filling for farmers who are working hard during the summer months and for Irish families with busy lifestyles. The series also recognises the renewed interest in cooking at home which has occurred as a result of the recent lockdown period in Ireland.
“We are delighted once again to team up with well-known chef Edward Hayden who has been a supporter of Agri Aware for years and is a real advocate for the use of produce from Irish family farms.”
The short videos will be uploaded on Agri Aware’s social media platforms from June 9th – June 12th and will also feature on Agri Aware’s website daily.
