One of life's simple pleasures is sharing good food with family and friends, and the key to any great meal is your ingredients. Choosing products with the Bord Bia Quality Mark means that you know your food has been produced
to the highest possible standards and can be traced back to the farm.
As members of the Bord Bia Quality Programme, over 40,000 farmers and over 150 processors are passionate about achieving the highest standards of quality. They are audited regularly by Bord Bia to ensure that these standards are maintained from farm right to the shop shelf.
You will find the Bord Bia Quality Mark in shops throughout the country on beef, lamb, pork (including bacon, cooked ham and rashers), chicken, turkey, duck, sausages and burgers. You will also find it on eggs, vegetables, fruit and potatoes.
Knowing how your food is produced and where it comes from means you can enjoy serving your family and friends with produce that is fresh, delicious and healthy.
So when shopping, always choose products with the Bord Bia Quality Mark because your food is our passion.
As an Irish chef, I am incredibly proud of the quality of the food produced on this wonderful island. Our produce is respected, and sought out, by leading chefs the world over and we are privileged to have it available at our finger tips. I am a great believer in using only the finest products in all my recipes and that includes food carrying the Bord Bia Quality mark.
To get you started, this booklet presents a number of easy to follow recipes which can be made using the best seasonal ingredients that Ireland has to offer.
