Oooh la, la — The importance of onions

Thu, Jun 23, 2016

Are you watching the football? France, the hosts are through to the last 16, and are looking good. When I think of France, I think of their favourite ingredient, onions. Onions are a much underrated ingredient in the kitchen, but are so important to our health and overall well-being, as well as being a cheap and tasty vegetable.

There are so many different uses for the common onion in cooking, my personal favourite is just fried onions with steak, or deep fried onion rings in a buttermilk batter. They flavour most sauces, soups and stews and many dishes, but here are a few of my favourite onion recipes.

Supermac’s launches fresh chicken sandwich

Thu, Jun 09, 2016

Supermac's continues the charge to end the race to the bottom for fast food in Ireland, by continuing to take the public's need for transparency and provenance into account.

Supermac’s is Ireland's largest indigenous fast food restaurant group with a policy of continued expansion and growth. While many similar restaurants largely stick to the menu of burgers and fries, Supermac's retains its edge and grows by diversifying and constantly updating its offerings. The first Supermac’s opened its door in 1978 on Main Street, Ballinasloe, Co Galway. Since that first opening, Supermac’s has grown steadily, and its restaurants have become a firm fixture in towns and cities around Ireland. There is always one nearby when you have a hankering for a Mighty Mac, even on the Aran Islands. Last year Supermac’s opened eight new restaurants throughout Ireland as part of its expansion plans, including Tipperary, Drogheda, Clonshaugh, and Ballacolla. The business is also involved in more than 100 community initiatives and sponsorships around Ireland.
