Even when we are only returning from a quick trip to Europe or Britain, the first thing that usually goes through our heads as we touch home soil is 'Pudding!"
We are, of course, talking about the meaty variety, black or white. And thanks to its popularity, the full Irish is still a staple on Aer Lingus short-haul flights, with every element carefully sourced, including sausages from Wexford, the all-important pudding by Horgans of Cork, right down to the McCambridge's brown bread. It's being joined by a whole new selection of delicacies courtesy of a collaboration with celebrity chef Clodagh McKenna. The new Clodagh's Kitchen for Bia menu has some-thing to satisfy every taste, including her signature pastrami and pickle sandwich, the ultra chic Irish croque monsieur – the Cheesy Mister – made with Irish cheddar, and scones and muffins. Another addition is the foodie map that details the provenance of all the ingredients and showcases where the best of Irish produce can be found. www.aerlingus.com
