Rory and Darina team up on small screen

Wednesday, 5th December, 2018 4:49pm

Rory O’Connell and his sister Darina Allen are back together again for the return of 'A Simply Delicious Christmas'.

In the first of the two episodes, on Tuesday 18 December, Rory works on his own and prepares dishes that have a seasonal flavour but which offer some relief to jaded palates.

Rory will prepare a salad of roasted pumpkin and Brussels sprouts with pumpkin seed praline and pomegranate molasses, and a cauliflower and coriander leaf soup with spiced tomato oil.

This is followed by a rustic turkey and Swiss chard tart and then poached pears with chocolate and pistachio. As always with Rory’s recipes, these are straight-forward to prepare, light to eat and full of flavour.

In episode two, on Wednesday 19 December, Rory is joined by Darina, and sibling rivalry returns to the kitchen as they prepare small bites, or canapés, for the party season. This includes roast onion leaves with smoked eel and horseradish mayo, Christmas quesadillas, anchovy and sesame seed straws, and filo tartlets with various fillings.

Sweet delights include chocolate prunes with gold leaf, marzipan stuffed dates, and Christmas lollipops. Expect strong disagreement over the use of decorative ‘sprinkles’. But order is restored and an impressive array of food is prepared.

Both episodes will be aired at 8.30pm on RTÉ 1.
