HOMEMADE BUTTER AND BRUNCH IDEAS FOR SPRING  

For this month, we bring you two recipes from Lough Derg. A lovely homemade butter recipe from Olivia who runs and owns the Princess Shannon, a cruising hotel on Lough Derg. Also, a lovely homemade sea food chowder recipe from the Derg Inn, a wonderful gastro pub in Terryglass, Co Tipperary. There are also some brunch recipe ideas.

Brunch is becoming hugely popular in Ireland and its really a combination of breakfast and lunch. Often, it is a heavy meal meant to take the place of both breakfast and lunch. A brunch usually involves standard breakfast foods such as eggs, sausages, bacon, ham, fruits, pastries, pancakes etc, however, it can include almost any other type of food! Brunches may have quiche, large roasts of meat or poultry, cold seafood, salads, soups, vegetable dishes, many types of breadstuffs, and desserts of all sorts. Mimosas, Ramos Gin Fizzes, Bellinis and Bloody Mary’s are popular Brunch Cocktails.
