RTÉ Player launches new collection of Valentine inspired video recipes


In the wake of a lean, mean January, it’s now time to ditch those New Year’s resolutions (temporarily!) and treat yourself to some delicious food.  Let RTÉ Player’s new collection of bite size Valentine’s Day recipes inspire you for the most romantic evening of the year. RTÉ Player’s dedicated foodie space, the Food Hub, now features a range of irresistible tasty morsels with a distinct Valentines twist from some of Ireland’s best known chefs, including; Donal Skehan, Rachel Allen, Martin Shanahan, Rory O’Connell, Kevin Dundon and Neven Maguire.

This season’s collection of recipes is bursting with indulgence.  Feast your eyes on the likes of Kevin Dundon’s Oven Baked Lobster with Dalkey mustard cream sauce or indulge on Rachel Allen’s Red Velvet Cupcakes.  See here: https://youtu.be/YrTccq2cK9s.  From starters to mains to desserts, get ready to pamper yourself and the one you love with a selection of meals fit for a king.

If that’s not enough to whet your appetite, browse through the library of existing recipes available on RTÉ Player including sumptuous raspberry brownies from Irish Food Blogger Indy Power (The Little Green Spoon blog) and Hot Oysters in Coconut Milk from Martin Shanahan.

The Food Hub is available on RTÉ Player, with new collections of bite-size video recipes being released every month. Next month look out for a new collection of St. Patricks Day inspired recipes featuring old Irish favourites. See http://www.rte.ie/player/ie/
