Meet the producer: Clonakilty

One of the most popular brands in our Irish Shop and loved by our buyer, Brian, Clonakilty make delicious, traditional black and white puddings, sausages and bacon. Brenda from Clonakilty told us more…

What’s the story behind the Clonakilty brand?

Clonakilty Black Pudding was first made in Edward Twomey’s butcher shop in Clonakilty, West Cork, Ireland in the 1880s. Today it is still made using the same secret spice blend which has been handed down through generations. All Clonakilty products are made using traditional methods, with recipes created from the knowledge and craft gathered over a century of Black Pudding making.

Not to be trifled with

Tuning into tonight’s Great British Bake Off? This week they’ll be whipping up their ‘signature trifle’ – and if yours is more Rachel Green than Mary Berry (hello Friends fans!) you might want to check out my recipe suggestions.


The trifle is essentially just layers of yumminess, so how hard can it be? These three look easy (and tasty) enough, so I say reclaim this retro pud and make trifle your signature dish.

Sherry Trifle

One for traditionalists, this makes a great centrepiece at the end of a meal, and you can swap in whatever berries are in season.

Baileys Trifle

Talk about decadent! With mascarpone and booze, this is a little more grown up than your average trifle.

Strawberry and Brownie Trifles

A fun and very easy treat, and great to make with kids.
