Traditional Irish Black Pudding Meets the Orient

Kerry Tradition with a Twist

From a mountain village in the Philippines to the shores of Littor Strand in North Kerry via London where Leah worked for some years, it was in London that she met Kerry native Billy Sweeney, who was also working in London, they married and setup house back in Kerry.

Leah’s passion for food began from her early days in her native Philippines where black pudding was a local delicacy. It was only when a pig was slaughtered by a household was black pudding made and enjoyed. The black pudding recipes, spices and ingredients were often unique to each household.

Throughout the years, Leah often made her black pudding recipe to be enjoyed by family and friends, and she was often encouraged to make it commercially to be enjoyed by many. It finally came to pass in 2011, in conjunction with Billy’s third generation Kerry family recipes and a blend of the finest of both Filipino & Irish Traditions that a new product range was born that now includes Gourmet Black Puddings, Gourmet White Puddings, Traditional Irish Breakfast Black Pudding, Traditional Irish Breakfast White Pudding, and Handcrafted Gourmet Irish Farm Cheddar with Oriental Spices.

Our gourmet pudding range made its debut at the Listowel Food Fair 2011 where we won Best Emerging New Food Product in the Meat Category. The high standards of excellence in our quality food production has resulted in our Irish White Pudding being an award-winner at the National Irish Food Awards (Blas na hÉireann) where we proudly won bronze in 2013.

These handmade products are a Fusion of Old Irish & Oriental Recipes packed with the finest ingredients, bursting with flavour and are now available for all to enjoy. Our products are not just for breakfast, just take a look at the range of recipes on our recipes page and try one of them.

Happy Eating,

Leah
