Neven Maguire has whipped up a new batch of family meals to come to the rescue of Irish women.
According to a survey carried out in September 2014 by Avonmore Cream, 75% of women in Ireland prepare and cook a main meal every day. The survey carried out using a database of 4,300 women aged between 25-44 years of age and living in the Republic of Ireland also revealed that 62.7% spend between 30-40 minutes preparing the main meal, while 20.6% spend around an hour or more every day of the week.
With this in mind, top chef Neven Maguire has teamed up with Avonmore to create some quick and easy family meals that anyone could prepare… hopefully with the idea that women might get a bit of a break in the future!! Speaking at the launch of the Avonmore Family Recipes Range, he said that comfort food is still part of our culture but because we have become more adventurous in the kitchen, people are always looking for new ideas to make family favourites even tastier. “I have just created a range of family recipes for www.cookwithavonmore.ie I used Avonmore’s Cooking Cream in this range as it has 50% less fat, adds a lovely smooth taste & texture to dishes and best of all it does not separate during the cooking process. I have created a number of all-time family favourites including Creamy Chicken Korma; Steak with Whiskey Pepper Sauce, Beef Stroganoff and Smoked Salmon and Prawn Linguini. They are easy and quick to prepare and go down a real treat.”
With the family meal a firm priority for many of us (the survey found that 62% of us sit down to a family meal together every night) these yummy recipes are surefire routes to success, meaning that we can spend more time catching up with family, and less time slaving over a hot stove.
