Competition Time – Win a pair of tickets to Belfast’s ABV Beer Festival!

ABV LogoABV Line

Beer lovers! Let’s celebrate the return of Ireland’s best craft beer festival, ABV Fest with two ticket giveaways! If you made it to last year’s festival down in the old shipyard drawing offices, you’ll remember the character of the venue, an historical space to celebrate the tradition and art of brewing. We raised our glasses to beer and cider makers up and down the country and old and new friends from breweries from near and far traveled to keep us company. We had some of the best local food producers fill our bellies while we soaked up the atmosphere of ABV15; it was gorgeous!

This year’s venue is Belfast’s inspirational Carlisle Memorial Church; a relaxed and historical space for congregation, contemplation and appreciation of fermentation! Some of our favourite breweries have been creating some special brews just for the occasion!

We have two pairs of tickets to give away for Saturday’s sessions on the 3rd of September. One pair for the afternoon session running from midday to 5pm and a second pair for the evening session running from 6pm to midnight.

To be in with a chance of winning a pair, all you have to do is follow @SculleryMade and like our ABV post on either Facebook, Instagram or The Twatter. We’ll draw the winners on Sunday the 28th of August and winners will be notified on social media and if you don’t win a pair here, don’t miss out! All losers can buy a pair of tickets here*! :)

*No sore losers allowed!

Potsticker Pork Dumplings

Potsticker Pork Dumplings

Potsticker pork dumplings are moreish mouthfuls, filled with spices, chilli and juicy pork that make a great dish to share. Whether they’re steamed, fried in butter or served up with in a warm broth, these will satisfy the hungriest of bellies!

 

I lived in Melbourne for a couple of years, a city with a rich culture of Asian food. In the heart of Melbourne’s China Town, they have multi-story restaurants serving up tables covered in plates, stacked high with dumplings with all kinds of fillings. It’s a tradition in Melbourne to have a mid-week beer & dumpling night with friends and now that I’m back home in Northern Ireland I love making these dumplings at home and share them with friends over a couple of beers.

To get a really juicy dumpling, it’s important to use good quality minced pork otherwise it will be too dry and our own pork from Northern Ireland is of the highest quality. Check with your butcher or on the label at a supermarket that the origin of the pork is Northern Irish Assured Origin Pork. I get all of my pork from Owen McMahon’s Butcher Shop on the Antrim Road; he supplies the pork that I use in my black pudding and he’s supplying 100% NI assured origin pork. I know Corries Butchers also only supply 100% NI assured origin pork and they have outlets across the greater Belfast area. It’s safe to say McMahon’s and Corries guarantee high quality meat, supplying only Northern Irish pork, and importantly they also guarantee a local supply chain which keeps local farms in business and keeps our local economy rolling and that’s important to me too!

The cut of pork is also important for a juicy dumpling; I don’t use lean pork mince, it’s not juicy enough! Owen’s butchers minced up a pork shoulder for me and that has a nice blend of meat & fat for a mouth-watering dumpling!

I’ve included a recipe for the dumpling dough below; but if you’re stuck for time you can also find packs of pre-rolled dumpling casings in Asian supermarkets in the freezer section. Be creative with your potsticker fillings, the recipe I’m sharing below suits me because I don’t like my food to pack too much heat and if I’m picking a beer to wash them down with, I’d drink Barney’s Brew from Hilden which is a Belfast Bap Wheat Beer with a hint of coriander & black pepper. Enjoy!! And as always, these recipes taste best when eaten with good company!

Potsticker Pork Dumplings

Ingredients

Serves#: 6

IMG_7597

Ingredients

For The Dough:

170g Plain Flour

140mL Hot Water

 

For The Filling:

350g Northern Irish Pork, Minced

1 Egg Yolk

1 Tsp Freshly Grated Ginger

1 Birdseye Chilli, Finely Chopped

Freshly Grated Zest of 1 Lemon

2 Scallions, Finely Chopped

1 Handful of Fresh Coriander, Coarsely Chopped

1 Clove Fresh Garlic, Crushed/Pressed

1 Tsp Caster Sugar

1 Pinch Of Salt To Season

 

Method

Preparation time: 50 minutes

Cooking time: 6-12 minutes 

To prepare the dough, gradually add the hot water to the flour while continually mixing until a dough ball forms (you may not need all of the water).

Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth (around 8-10 mins) then seal the dough with cling film and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Roll the dough on a floured surface to 1cm thick then cut circles of the dough using a very small pastry cutter with a 35mm diameter.

Once cut, dust the circles again with flour and roll the dough again to form a very flat pancake around 9cm diameter.

Arrange the dumpling pancakes on a large board ready to fill.

Mix the filling ingredients in a large bowl and pinch off cherry-sized portions of the filling to place off-center on the dough.

IMG_7595

Wet the edges of the dough and fold over the pastry bringing the edges together, pushing any air bubbles out.

Pinch the dough around the edges to seal the dumpling and steam the dumplings over a boiling pot of water for 6 minutes to cook.

IMG_7596

Serve the dumplings on their own with soy sauce, or in a hearty bowl of broth, or fry the dumplings in butter before serving to crisp up the dough! Enjoy!

Buchannan Farm’s Curry Scotch Egg

Buchannan Farm’s Curry Scotch Egg

 

We met Buchannan’s Turkey farmIMG_6627 at their first farmer’s market at the Inns last year and quickly learnt they’re not just about Turkey’s! They make sweet and crispy bacon, lamb chops, burgers and seasoned pork sausages. Their curry sausages have a lovely mild spiciness and make a gorgeous scotch egg! The recipe calls for Panko breadcrumbs which are crunchier and bigger than your regular breadcrumbs and a double coating around the scotch egg gives a lovely crispy shell to bite through. Enjoy!

Curry Scotch Egg

Ingredients

Serves #: 4

Ingredients

6 Cavanagh Free Range Eggs

600g Buchanan’s Curry Sausages

Handful of Fresh Coriander Leaves, Chopped

300g Panko Breadcrumbs

300g Plain Flour

Oil for Frying

IMG_6997

Method

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 19 minutes 

Boil four of the eggs for 6 minutes. Once cooked, peel the eggs and place them in ice cold water.

Beat the two remaining eggs. Place them in a large bowl next to a large bowl containing the flour and a third large bowl containing the breadcrumbs.

Remove the sausage meat from the sausage casings and mix with the chopped coriander.

IMG_6991

To make the scotch eggs, divide the meat into four even balls. Flatten the meat in the palm of your hand. Roll the cooked egg in flour, cover with the sausage meat and make sure there’s no egg white visible. Roll the meat covered egg in the flour, then in the beaten eggs, then into the breadcrumbs and again into the beaten eggs and a second time into the breadcrumbs.

Deep fry at 170°C for 3 minutes until golden and cook in the oven at 180°C for 10 minutes.

Black Pudding, Fried New Potatoes & Peas

Black Pudding, Fried New Potatoes & Peas

IMG_5229

 

Never mind, longer evenings, cherry blossoms, or an abundance of bank holidays. Spring’s arrival means one important thing. New season = New potatoes.

Boil’em, mash ’em, stick’em in stew!  I love those little critters!

I’m guilty of always cooking up a spare 10-15 new potatoes just so there is a handful ready for frying, in case of a fried potato emergency! What’s that?! You too…Hello friend. Welcome! You’re in good company here – this Scullery is a safe place!

The dish below brings together new potatoes, fresh peas in a pod and rich spiced black pudding. The spices seep out of the fried pudding to season the oil, crisping up new potatoes as they soak up all the flavour from the pudding. The green peas add a fresh, sweet flavour to cut through the richness of the pudding and fried potatoes. I first came across this recipe when the lovely folks over at Deli Muru made the dish using some of my Black Pudding after their first Inns Market outing!

We’ve used our SculleryMade Black Lava pudding here because it’s seasoned with chili and smoked paprika which gives a rich, smokey, spicy flavour to the dish. If you can’t get hold of our Black Lava, try adding a teaspoon of smoked paprika and a chopped birdseye chilli to the pan when frying your pudding.

All together, this dish pairs nicely with our smokey, spicy Chicken Thigh Hot Pot in Tomato, Fennel & Lemon Sauce… Bueno!

Enjoy!!

Black Pudding, Fried New Potatoes & Peas

Ingredients

Serves #: 4

Ingredients

300g New Potatoes, parboiled for 10 minutes

180g BlackLava, Belfast Black Pudding

100g Fresh peas in a pod, sliced

Oil for frying

 

Method

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Calories per serving: 129 Calories per portion (0.9g sugar)

Slice the Black Pudding into 0.5inch thick slices and fry on a medium heat, turning over to crisp on both sides.

 

IMG_6108

 

While the pudding is frying, slice the cooked new potatoes.

Remove the pudding from the pan and leave to one side. Use the hot oil from the pudding to cook the potato slices until they are crispy on both sides.

While the potatoes are frying, boil the peas in their pods for 3-4 minutes and drain.

Add the peas in a pod to the potatoes and crumble the cooked black pudding through the mixtures and cook for an additional 2 minutes before serving warm.

Chicken Thigh Hot Pot in Tomato, Fennel & Lemon Sauce

IMG_5669

Chicken Thigh Hot Pot in Tomato, Fennel & Lemon Sauce

The time is nigh; celebrate the thigh! These days we don’t cook nearly enough with chicken thighs. Somewhere in the passing of time, the breast was given a gold star and red carpet treatment, wings followed in second place, leaving the thigh trailing behind and for the life of me, I can’t figure out why!

Chicken Thigh. It’s like a bigger, juicier, crispier wing.  Rich, dark, juicy chicken, wrapped in a crackled, crispy, salty skin. What. Is. Not. To. Like.?!

This recipe was inspired by Spanish tapas I had in Barcelona when I was there for non-maid duties (I’m a Scientist, and my job forces me to travel to sunny places like Spain… do your homework kids!! It’s worth it, I tell ya!). The dish they served to share was overflowing with prawns, mussels & cockles in a tomato sauce with fresh coriander and lemon juice, but I do love a chicken thigh and I thought they’d make a great substitute for this dish when I was cooking for family who suffer from death by prawns.

It’s fresh but smokey, warm but zesty and is simple but full of flavour, give it a go! It pairs well with a side dish of potatoes, peas and black pudding (recipe over here!)… I hope it inspires you to embrace the thigh; it’s time!

IMG_5229

Chicken Thigh Hot Pot in Tomato, Fennel & Lemon Sauce

Serves 4: 

8 Chicken Thighs (Skin on)

2 Medium Fennel Bulbs, Sliced

1 Tsp Sea Salt

1 Birdseye Chilli, Chopped

30g Fresh Basil, Chopped

Cooking time: 45-50 minutes 

Calories per serving: 301 Calories per serving (5.2g sugar)

 

Marinade the chicken, paprika, cinnamon, salt, lemon rind & 1 tbsp of oil in a bowl in the fridge for 1 hour before cooking.

In a hot, oiled pan, brown the marinated chicken thighs, skin side down first before turning to brown on the other side.

Remove the browned chicken thighs from the pan and leave to one side.

Add the fennel to the pan and cook until it softens.

Add the brown sugar, garlic, chilli, passata, stock and lemon juice to the pan and stir well.

Place the chicken thighs skin side up into the tomato sauce. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for an additional 25-30 minutes.

Garnish the dish with freshly chopped coriander and basil before serving with Black Pudding, Fried New Potatoes & Peas…!

Bueno!

Belfast Black Pudding Scotch Eggs

Belfast Black Pudding Scotch Eggs 

For about 6 months during university, I lived with my Granny in West Belfast. The G-Unit. Our wee Westicle. Westside. She’s a legend, our Granny. I had no idea then, but I’d come to fall victim to a contagious affliction during my time with Granny. The Irish Granny’s need to feed. If I’m honest, I was probably always prone to the disease, but living with Granny definitely catalyzed my need to feed everyone and anyone who’s foot crossed the front door. Those who know me know the dangers of visiting the Scullery – “Try this! Eat that! Drink this! Take some of that home!”…thanks Granny, you’ve got a lot to answer for!

This need to feed lead me on a wintry Friday evening to serve up crispy, golden, Belfast black pudding Scotch eggs next to patiently poured pots of SculleryMade Porter when a couple of neighbours called round from Sugarpiece.com to write a piece on my black pudding. While we talked all things pudding and beer, Sugarpiece’s in-house Chef, Brian lent his Michelin-in-your-kitchen tips to help create these tasty Scotch eggs and the recipe is now yours to try!

Hop on over to Sugarpiece’s website for more recipes from Chef Brian and you can read their original Black Pudding piece here!

Enjoy!

Baked Cavanbert; be my cheesy Valentine!

Baked Cavanbert; be my cheesy Valentine!

Romance is in the air…My dear Cavanbert, it’s time I tell you how I really feel. You wheeled on into my life on a crisp September Saturday morning, all mouldy and a little stanky. I thought you were a once-off. A visitor on my cheeseboard, perched up next to a piece of Young buck and a tangy goat’s cheese. That was before I knew what I now know. And, well… now, you’re that wheel in the distance I hope to recognize.

Cavanbert, made by Silke Cropp, outside Belturbet, Co. Cavan is made with raw cow’s milk, and pays a fine tribute to the soft Camembert style. It’s a beautifully creamy, pungently lactic raw cheese. In my humble opinion, it is best served baked. A baked ‘bert is hard to beat but a baked Cavanbert, with thin slices of raw garlic and sprigs of fresh rosemary is the greatest union and served up with a rich Stout, like Boundary Brewing’s chocolate-heavy Stout will melt you to the core!

This dish tests patience and requires restraint… when you unwrap your Cavanbert you’ll be tempted to cut through the chalky white skin and sneak a bite of it’s delicious creamy centre… don’t! Patiently place thin slices of raw garlic and sprigs of fresh rosemary throughout the cheese and leave to bake at 150oC or lower for 40-60 minutes until the centre bubbles up like a white-hot liquid lava. Serve immediately with thinly sliced crusty baguettes for dunking and wash it down with an equally flavoursome beer like a rich stout, an imperial stout or an aged porter and feel the love!

 

FullSizeRender_1

Baked Cavanbert; be my cheesy Valentine!

Ingredients

Serves 2 or one if you’re lonely.

 

1 Wheel of Cavanbert Cheese (Corleggy Cheeses, Cavan)

2 Cloves of Garlic, Thinly Sliced

1 Sprig of Fresh Rosemary

 

To serve:

1 Crusty Baguette, sliced

Cracked black pepper

A couple of bottles of Boundary Brewing Stout

 

Method

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 40 minutes

Calories per serving: it’s melted cheese, from Cavan. It doesn’t calorie.

 

 

Pre-heat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius.

Pierce the cheese and insert the thin slices of garlic and individual pines of rosemary throughout the wheel.

Bake the cheese in the pre-heated oven for 40-60 minutes.

Serve bubbling hot with thinly sliced, crusty baguettes and wash it down with Boundary Brewing’s export Stout.

Abernethy Butter Pancakes with Smoked Salmon & Dill Creme Fraiche

 

Abernethy Butter Pancakes with Smoked Salmon & Dill Creme Fraiche

IMG_4713

Pancake Tuesday is upon us! Growing up, it was the greatest thing, for one day a year, to be allowed to eat Pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner and as a snack any hour in between. As a kid, one pancake Tuesday stands out for me above all others. Like this year, it fell early in February and we’d had a heavy snowfall making our road unsafe to drive, so school was out for all us kids on the road! We spent our pancake-fueled day sledding, building snow men and avoiding snowball grenades launched by my brother and his mates…we finished the day with all the Forest Rd. neighbours gathering in our warm kitchen to tackle mountains of home-cooked pancakes for one final feast! Those endless pancake-peaks were never finished … we were defeated in the end. Stuffed, satisfied and sorry to see the day’s end.

Back then, we all favoured sweeter toppings like butter & golden syrup, icing sugar & lemon juice or chocolate spread over savoury toppings; so as a tribute to that sweeter palate, I’ve shared a sweet strawberry pancake recipe over here. But these days, I’d prefer a savoury topping so, below I’m sharing a recipe for pancakes with Dulse Abernethy Butter, smoked salmon, dill & lemon creme fraiche. The recipe calls for melted butter in the pancake batter, so I’ve used plain Abernethy Butter in the batter as I split this batter for a sweet and a savoury recipe, but there’s no reason you couldn’t use Smoked Abernethy Butter or Dulse Abernethy Butter instead. To add to the savoury & salty flavour of this recipe, I spread a knob of their Dulse butter on the warm pancakes before topping with the smoked salmon and dill creme fraiche.

The pancake recipe below is traditionally called a “drop scone” recipe and makes a risen, fluffy pancake with little air pockets throughout; a note to butter-lovers, those little air pockets form great butter wells!

With Super Bowl Sunday also coming up, this pancake batter could also make a great base for savoury Super Bowl snacks and, if you’re thinking of making some pulled pork, or pulled beef brisket you could serve it up on these pancakes and use Smoked Abernethy Butter on the pancakes to add to a smokey flavour of the snack!

Abernethy Butter Pancakes with Smoked Salmon & Dill Creme Fraiche

Ingredients

Serves 4:

 

For the Pancakes:

100g Self Raising Flour

30g Caster Sugar

1 Egg, Whisked

50g Melted Abernethy Butter

125mL Semi-Skimmed Milk

Rapeseed oil for frying

 

For the Creme Fraiche Dressing:

100mL Creme Fraiche

Chopped handful of fresh Dill

Zest & Juice of 1 Lemon

 

1 Knob of Dulse & Sea Salted Abernethy Butter

150g Smoked Salmon to Serve

 

IMG_4712

Method

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 6 minutes 

Calories per serving: 333 Calories per serving (2 x pancakes each)

 

Mix the flour & sugar in a bowl and make a well to whisk in the egg, melted butter and a dash of milk.

Gradually whisk in the remainder of the milk to form a smooth batter.

Pour a tablespoon of batter onto a lightly oiled pan on a medium heat and cook for 3-4 minutes until air bubbles start to appear on the surface.

Flip the pancake and cook for another 2 mins until golden brown underneath.

IMG_4711

To prepare the creme fraiche dressing, roughly chop the fresh dill and mix into the creme fraiche before adding the zest and juice of one lemon.

To serve, butter the warm pancakes, top with smoked salmon and a spoonful of creme fraiche dressing.
