With ‘A Morning on the Farm’ being the latest theme for our Irish at Heart subscription box, we thought we’d give you a way to stretch that fresh farm feeling into the evening – with a traditional Farmhouse Supper. This is not the time to fuss about floral arrangements or polished cutlery – set yourself up for a meal where food is the centrepiece, and the only thing that needs to be sparkling is the conversation.
We’ve collated a few recipes below to help you recreate a rustic charm and warm homey ambience at your very own dinner table. Plate presentation has no place in the farmhouse, and all of the produce should be prepared to be shared ‘Family Style’ – so just plunk everything in the middle with plenty of serving spoons and invite your nearest and dearest to dig in.
The key to a good farmhouse supper lies in simply prepared, locally sourced and delicious food in abundance, so your first port of call should be to your local markets, butchers and fruit shops. Or, if you want to bring your produce even closer to home – check out our tips for growing your own edible garden.
