High drama in Motherland finale

This week it’s a creamy cheese starter of stracciatella with blood oranges, rocket and roast hazelnuts; followed by a potato, gruyere, bacon and thyme pie; and an apple, raisin and whiskey flan.

And the craft section highlights Sarah Jenkinson Baskets in Galway, where Sarah grows her own varieties of willow — she’s involved in the basket-making process, from plant to basket.

Sarah’s collection of baskets includes fruit and vegetable storage, a variety of decorative traditional Irish Skibs, oval and square shopping baskets for daily use, and asymmetric baskets with hazel handles for fireside or storage, Willow is a sustainable product and all items are eco friendly, biodegradable, durable, lightweight and a beautiful alternative to plastic.
