James Whelan Butchers: Hot Brazillian

Thursday, June 12th, 2014 in Foodie Articles | No Comments »

You don’t need me to tell you how to cope with Irish summers.  I shouldn’t have to remind you that just because it says June on the calendar you still shouldn’t leave the house without being prepared for any and all weather eventualities – sun screen and bug spray will reside harmoniously with wet weather […]

James Whelan Butchers: Satay Beef

Thursday, September 26th, 2013 in Beef Recipes, Recipes | No Comments »

I love barbecuing and these skewered satays are very popular with children. When barbecuing meat, brush it with oil before placing it on the hotplate, rather than pouring the oil on to the barbecue where it can cause flames and burning. Also soak the wooden skewers in water while the meat is marinating to prevent […]

James Whelan Butchers: Slow-cooked Beef Pot Roast

Thursday, September 19th, 2013 in Beef Recipes, Recipes | No Comments »

At weekends when we just want to relax with the kids and enjoy a meal together with not too much time taken to prepare it, this is often our first choice. It takes only 15 minutes or so preparation time and then it’s left to cook slowly for hours with only the effort of plating up involved. Slow-cooked […]

James Whelan Butchers: Beef Bourguignon

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013 in Beef Recipes, Recipes | No Comments »

I can clearly remember the first time I enjoyed this classic dish. I was pleasantly surprised that it was so much more layered in taste than my expectation, which was that it was just a beef stew with a fancy name. I was wrong. The aromas that fill the house when it’s cooking stimulate the […]

James Whelan Butchers: Roast Rump with Garlic and Red Wine Gravy

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013 in Beef Recipes, Recipes | No Comments »

Garlic is an ingredient that finds its way into many of my recipes. It is not that long ago that the notion of including a chopped clove of garlic in a dish would have seemed alien to most of us. This may seem a lot of garlic, but it really does add an extra dimension […]

James Whelan Butchers: Latin America

Friday, March 22nd, 2013 in Good Food | No Comments »

Inspiration for food, how we eat and how we cook is all around us. It is often a simple phrase, something in a newspaper, an innocent observation perhaps that will strike a mental chord and turn into a food thought. Writing also shares that space of infinite inspiration in the world around and about us. […]

James Whelan Butchers: A Food Truck Rodeo

Friday, November 2nd, 2012 in Good Food | No Comments »

“Street Food” is something I’m hearing and reading a lot about and I’m still not sure I fully understand what it is, but it has certainly elevated the standard of food-to-go generally and it seems to be creating great excitement. On a recent trip to America you can imagine my excitement when I not just discovered […]

James Whelan Butchers: Patriotic Food

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012 in Foodie Articles, Good Food | 1 Comment »

  We share a great deal in common with our nearest neighbour the UK. We don’t think anything of watching British television or reading British magazines and embracing the texts and programmes as our own. We’ll watch cookery programmes, largely presented by British chefs and cooks and we forget we are watching something from another […]

James Whelan Butchers: Great Tipp Food

Friday, August 19th, 2011 in Foodie Articles | No Comments »

  As the old saying goes, necessity really is the mother of invention. I found myself with a small dilemma (tiny in fact as dilemmas go) over the weekend. Approximately half of a pound of butter that had been left out of the fridge was rapidly turning into a too soft, squidgy mess on the […]
