Bryan McCarthy is head chef at the prestigious Springfort Hall, an 18th century manor house in Mallow, County Cork. He describes himself as a food producer, baker, meat dryer, artisan, pork lover and meat smoker.
Basically he will try anything and everything.
Here, in words and pictures, he leads us through a hugely successful attempt at making blood cake.
Fabulous. Much more successful as a blood cake. Needs a little bit more salt buts tastes amazing.
