Taste of Cavan is on 11 and 12 August. I love this weekend and the celebration of great local producers. On the Saturday I will be cooking with people who attend the festival – which I’m really looking forward to. You can find all of the details on www.tasteofcavan.ie.

And if you’re spending the weekend at home, why not try this salmon. It is a super-healthy dish packed full of Omega 3, and the recipe gets some nice flavour into the couscous. I came across sumac a while back and I like the delicate citrus taste of this spice – it is very refreshing. You will find it in Asian markets and it is used a lot in the Middle East. You can get pomegranates almost all-year round now. I often cut them in two, remove the seeds, and then freeze them in a bag.
