  • Annette Minihan

Remember this face.
This is Annette Minihan of Minihan's of West Clare, and Ms Minihan is one hell of a talent. How far would you walk – barefoot in an electrical thunderstorm – for the best baked vanilla cheesecake you ever tasted? If you are like us, then you would walk any distance for that cheesecake, and for Annette's cheesecake – and her lemon tartlet, and her chocolate and orange and hazelnut tart – we would crawl on our hands and knees in a thunderstorm. Superb work, and we haven't even tasted the award-wining spinach and got cheese quiche yet. Well, avoiding thunderstorms etc etc, you can get this amazing grub here:
