Drinking a glass of Kinsale Mead at dinner is lovely, but how about adding those delicious flavours to the meal itself? We have collected recipes from some of Kinsale's finest chefs, and from chefs around Ireland, who have been cooking with mead to create these mouth-watering dishes.
This is a 17th century recipe, a mix of dairy an alcohol, usually with a dry white wine but it's heavenly with Atlantic Dry Mead. Not just for tudors! We decided to experiment with adding some mead into a chocolate recipe. The results were amazing! Fudgy and boozy brownies. Serve with a generous glass of Wild Red Mead. Rosewater and Cherry with a splash of Wild Red Mead. Fabulous! Pour a glass as an accompaniment. Pouring a little mead sauce over each apricot and serving with a mint leaf and ice cream makes for a fabulous dessert. A delicious zesty dish that really helps bring out the flavor of the meat. Slow cooking lamb or pork in Hazy Summer Mead along with the oranges gives it a real juicy taste that you can’t beat. Atlantic Dry Mead with Honey and Orange combine for this delicious palate cleanser after dinner or even between courses. A meal fit for the Irish Chieftains of old!
