Kevin Dundon's Christmas

Kevin shares his favourite Christmas recipes with us.


Kevin Dundon, one of Ireland's best-known chefs, is here to lend a helping hand to perfect your Christmas dinner.

As a celebrity chef, cookbook author and TV personality, Kevin is a familiar face in the Irish food scene. Dunbrody House Hotel is well-known for its luxurious surroundings and delicious food, while the Dunbrody Cookery School is the perfect spot for budding cooks to hone their skills.

Here, Kevin tell us his favourite Christmas memory, which is taken from his childhood:

"My grandfather always claimed that there was money in the Christmas pudding, but that you had to eat it in order to find the cash. However, the only person to ever find the money was my grandfather, who we called Pa. I think he tricked us by keeping the money in his pocket and then putting it in his napkin! All the grandchildren got a coin every Christmas by eating the pudding and now love Christmas Pudding!"

Kevin has kindly shared three Christmas recipes with us for you to try out: First up is a delicious seasonal starter of Cauliflower and Blue Cheese Soup, followed by the perfect Whole Glazed Ham on the Bone. For dessert, Kevin has given us his recipe for a Classic Christmas Trifle, which is sure to please all of your guests this year.

Cauliflower and Blue Cheese Soup

"This is a classic combination of flavours. This is quite a filling soup recipe so a little goes a long way. For a varied flavour why not try adding in a little curry powder when cooking the soup for a mild curried alternative."
