'Jim's Kitchen' new cookery book

We are very privileged to have been chosen to sell the new cookery book from popular Portlaoise chef, Jim Tynan. His book, Jim's Kitchen, is filled with delicious recipes, many from his restaurant in Portlaoise. Most of the recipes are simple and wholesome and Jim's philosophy for using quality, local and seasonal ingredients shines through.
In April 1982 Jim opened his first premises in Portlaoise. His business has grown over the years and The Kitchen and Foodhall is now a popular cafe/restaurant and a must-see for anyone visiting Portlaoise. His popularity was confirmed in 2007 when he won Laois Person of the year.
We were delighted to host a Christmas Cake demonstration by Jim in our store last Wednesday night and we were astonished that over 120 people showed up to see him demonstrate simple techniques for making, baking and icing Christmas cakes. (His christmas cake recipes are in the book) It was a very enjoyable night for all and hopefully we will be hosting other demonstrations in the near future.
