Chef Katie Sanderson,?the foodie genius behind moving vegetarian caf? The Hare and the Living Dinners pop-up in Dilisk,?is one the most exciting people working in her industry. Which is why we are excited to share two of her recipes with you today and tomorrow. These recipes – first up, Rosemary & Connemara Sea Salt Fudge – are part of her collaboration with design studio, Designgoat for Liminal – Irish design at the threshold, the touring flagship exhibition of Irish Design 2015 and both incorporate seaweed and sea vegetables. Up tomorrow? Milk caragheen with fennel cream and salted unripe Dublin gooseberry. In the meantime, try making the fudge and check out Liminal’s website. It looks like the perfect ending to a year that brought Irish design to the deserved fore.
