It might not feel like it now – but spring is definitely on its way. We’ve passed the shortest day of the year on the 21st of December, which means the days are getting longer. An extra sliver of light each day that passes. Soon we’ll see a stretch in the evenings again. In the meantime, we can speed things up a little in the kitchen. OHCo is an artisan Irish organic herb company that makes oils, herb and spice mixes and rubs to bring sunshine to a meal. The BrookLodge Rub is packed with spicy flavours, created specially for out award winning BrookLodge Hotel in Co. Wicklow. Try it on chicken or fish and taste the tastes of warm and sunny climes. Irish Garden Herb Oil is summer in a bottle, loaded with heady fragrances of all the herbs you’d find in an Irish country garden. Close your eyes and sniff… you can even hear the birds singing if you try hard enough!
