Welcome to Saint Patrick’s Plate!
Terry McCoy has been a chef for more than 50 years and has been lucky enough to travel the world and earn a living from cooking through my passion for food.
“It gives me great pride to write my first cook book as I turn a chapter towards retirement. Since moving to Skerries on the east coast of Dublin more than 40 years ago, I have been fascinated by the story of St. Patrick. Despite his worldwide fame, there is little in the way of food references in the stories and legends associated with St. Patrick.
This gave me the idea for Saint Patrick’s Plate…”
Nicky Byrne of Westlife and Dancing with the Stars talks to Terry McCoy in Manor Bookshop in Malahide. “I am very grateful to Nicky Byrne of Westlife and Dancing with the Stars for helping me out with my latest video below. I’m proud to hear such positive words from Nicky, and can’t wait to see what he cooks up.” We’re living in strange times at the moment but hopefully the world will continue to turn and things will get back to normal in time. So, for the upcoming St. Patrick’s day festivities, whether you’re in quarantine or not, why not hunker down and try out a new recipe from Saint Patrick’s Plate ?
There are over 60 to choose from, most use fresh local ingredients that are easy to source. You can even forage for ingredients like St. Patrick did to get out in the fresh air and get some positive perspective. Special thanks to Robert in Manor books of Malahide and of course thank you Nicky for your kind words! Is ”Cooking with the Stars” next?!
