BACK TO SCHOOL WITH A LUNCH BOX WITH A DIFFERENCE

It is hard to believe that the summer holidays for the kids are almost over. How time flies! It has been a busy time in the restaurant and in the Cookery School while I also had a brilliant time recently at the Taste of Cavan food festival. It just gets better every year.

In this blog I am going to share with you a few ideas for those back to school lunch boxes. A biscuit with a difference and a gorgeous wrap. Hope you enjoy making them as much as I know the kids will enjoy eating them!
