We were delighted to publish our second recipe ebook last week. To celebrate we ran a Facebook competition and we are delighted to announce that Susan Ryan is our winner! We look forward to welcoming you to Ariel House!
Our new recipe ebook is a collection of our most popular afternoon tea treats that we serve here in Ariel House. We pride ourselves on our delicious home baking and thought it would be nice for you all to have a little taste of Ariel House in your own kitchens.
One of our most popular recipes, featured in our ebook, is our delicious chocolate chip banana bread. It is wonderful with a blob of freshly whipped cream or lightly toasted with a smear of real Irish butter for breakfast.
