  • from whence the seed was sown

    The Légumerie celebrates vegetables, grains, pulses and legumes, and champions ethical and sustainable food production. Our passion for plant-based fare is born of a love for people, animals and the planet, and a conviction that by changing our approach to food we not only help the environment, we open ourselves up to a whole new world of culinary possibilities.

  • like peas and carrots

    The business is run by brother and sister team, John and Claire Duffy. Claire holds a master’s degree in global food security, has a keen interest in sustainable agriculture, environmental protection and climate justice, and occasionally moonlights in international development. John has a master’s degree in international business but is yet to be convinced of its usefulness.


    John is an artificial intelligence nerd, Tesla enthusiast and lover of craft beer. When not reading, writing or experimenting in the kitchen, Claire enjoys sound design, whiskey and all things triathlon.

    I have two cracking recipes for you today: one savoury, one sweet. The savoury pancakes take less than five minutes to prepare, five minutes to cook, and are great at this time of year with any green salad you can rustle up. The lemon and ginger cake with lemon-vanilla frosting is moist and...
    Happy Friday, everyone. I’ve promised quite a few people this recipe, so here it is (finally)! If the photographs look familiar that’s because I’ve posted them before. I wish I could say I made a fresh batch for today’s blog but as I'm home alone I'd only eat them all myself, and some things are...
    On a sunny day in February I set off for Malawi, where I would spend a little over three weeks leading a research project for Concern Worldwide. As with anywhere I travel, I’m always curious about the food culture, local ingredients and regional specialities, and Malawi did not disappoint. Today...
    I was never a fussy eater as a child, but on the rare occasion I’d hesitate over a Brussels sprout I’d be treated to that set piece of Irish parenting many of you will recognise: “Eat your dinner – children are starving in Africa”. To my six-year-old mind, Africa was a faraway pit of mass...
    Some of my earliest childhood memories involve making a mess in the kitchen. As a five-year-old, there were the dogged attempts at replicating the chocolate truffles I’d seen my mum make. Enlisting the help of the kid next door, we’d hoist ourselves onto the kitchen worktop, raid the larder...
