I have an upcoming cookery demo evening in aid of LauraLynn and the Blackrock Hospice on Wednesday 2nd March 2016 in the beautiful venue of the Pavilion at Leopardstown Racecourse. TV3 presenter Anna Daly is master of ceremonies so it promises to be a great night of fun, food and chat with a full bar, free parking, raffles and a host of stalls selling homemade delicious treats, handmade jewelry and other goodies.

Smoked Salmon Pate

 
Serves 6
 
It’s great to have some of this in the fridge for snacks on the run or a packed lunch.  It’s lovely and light and will keep for a week. For a family meal I put a kilner jar of this on a big board with lots of crusty bread or toast in the middle of the table and let everyone dig in while the rest of the meal (if you’re having anything else, because frankly it’s almost enough on its own) is being prepared.
 
  • 100g (3 ½ oz) smoked salmon
  • 75g (2 ¾ oz) cream cheese
