M&S cooks up an Irish menu

IRISH recipes made with local produce are the theme for Marks & Spencer's Produced In Ireland cookery series.

Chef Rory Morahan will be creating bespoke Irish recipes exclusively in M&S stores throughout June.

Shares at the company has been enjoying something of a rebound of late as investors are buoyed by plans to reduce its capital expenditure. The store unveiled its autumn winter range last month, which also boosted shares, despite a 5.8pc fall in pre-tax profit to €781.2m in the year to the end of March.
