Lydia Bright and Mash Direct

To kick off 2022 we have an exciting partnership lined up; we will be working with TV personality, presenter and podcaster Lydia Bright! Lydia, who loves cooking for friends and family at home in Essex, is working with us to create some mouth-watering recipes that are packed full of goodness.


The recipes are designed to be quick and easy using our range of award-winning potato and vegetable side dishes, all grown and produced on our Family Farm in the heart of County Down, close to the shores of Strangford Lough. We use heritage varieties of vegetables, chosen specifically for their flavour rather than appearance, making sure Lydia’s recipes are tasty as well as good for you!
