Mulled Wine

A Country Kitchen by Anne NearyFor family and friends who drop by over the Christmas period, try Anne Neary’s 10 minute recipe for Mulled Wine from A Country Kitchen (paperback, available online from , €26 incl P&P, and selected bookshops in the South-East). Written by a teacher with nearly 20 years experience of running her Ryeland House Cookery School in Co Kilkenny, and a love of the country, its produce and introducing young people to the origins of their food, it’s a book with an authentic voice - and one I will come back to. Meanwhile, from the Christmas chapter, here’s a tasty little number for a party helping down the mince pies.
