    Meet Adrian & Mary

    Adrian and Mary are retired couple, who’ve been together for 45 years. They live in Blarney, Co Cork.

    Mary cooks daily for both herself and Adrian, and very frequently, her extended family. She used to own a B&B, so cooking for hungry masses definitely comes in handy when her 6 children, and 6 grandchildren, all descend around the dinner table! On top of being a dab hand in the kitchen, she loves a good bargain – so perhaps it’s lucky that Adrian and Mary always do their shopping together. Adrian keeps this instinct in check...when he can!

    Q&A with Adrian & Mary

    Q. Tell us a little bit about your family?

    We have a big family - we've six children and six wonderful grandchildren. When we all get together - dinner time is definitely busy! I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Q. Who does most of the cooking?

    I (Mary) cook every day and also cook dinners for my children frequently too! I love it when the family comes around. 

    Q. What are your favourite recipes?

    There's a tasty chicken & mushroom dish which I love - I serve it with rice or potatoes. Adrian is fond of slow cooked steak. Homemade cottage pie is definitely a favourite with the family, and great for a large amount of people!
