We all love a good sale: Just because we’re in lockdown, doesn’t mean we can’t grab a bargain. Kilkenny’s Spring Sale is still on this weekend, and with 72% of its brands designed and made in Ireland, you can support local too. This gorgeous Orla Kiely linear stem utensil pot is half price at €15, see www.kilkennyshop.com.
On the Kitchen Shelf this week is the newest addition to the cult classic Bonne Maman. The Intense range stays true to the ethos of using simple ingredients to create fruit conserves, but, good news for anyone watching their sugar intake, it uses up to 37% less sugar than regular conserves. Big hit with the kids here.
Available in all major retailers, €2.99. Instagram: @bonnemaman_irl
