The launch of Food for Hope, a celebrity cookbook in aid of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association took place at Cork's Silversprings Hotel recently with a host of famous faces including Neven Maguire and Newstalk's Jonathan Healy.
The book is a compendium of recipes from people like Sonia O'Sulllivan, Gabriel Byrne, Enda Kenny and even Maeve Binchy, whose recipe for potato cakes and mackerel smokies landed on organiser, Cork woman Katie Hallissey's doorstep the day after Maeve passed away. Katie's own father John died from Motor Neurone disease. The book is available from Easons, on Amazon, and via imnda.ie.
This recipe by Sonia O'Sullivan is quick and tasty.
