Wholesome Food For Halloween


CATRIONA REDMOND speaks to Noel McGuinness about cooking wholesome food for Halloween. Catriona remembers the traditions of her childhood associated with collecting and eating food as a family.

Catriona talks of her love for curly kale and how easy it is to cook. Catriona talks about the change in tradition and how in her younger days children had to do a Halloween “party piece” in order to be given food. She also suggests some healthy alternatives to sweets and chocolate and advises against giving nuts to children due to the possibility of allergies.

Also mentioned are some traditional Halloween treats, inclusing barm brack, curly kale and sticky sausages with honey and mustard. It’s also time, says Catriona, to plan for Christmas foods including mixing the ingredients for Christmas cakes and puddings.
