Bushmill's Inn, a hotel/restaurant in the County Antrim town of the same name, is part of a coaching inn that dates back to 1608 when the famous Old Bushmills Distillery was granted the world's first ever license to distill whiskey. The chef likes to rely on local ingredients in his cooking, and he suggests local fresh or smoked haddock, Coleraine cheddar cheese, and Caffrey's Ale in this fish baked with a cheese crust. As with other Irish dishes, substitutions are often necessary, so when Caffrey's Ale or Ulster cheese is unavailable, try Harps Lager, an ale brewed in Dundalk, County Louth, and any good Irish cheddar cheese. Serve with boiled potatoes and a fresh green vegetable or salad. This week's recipe Baked Fish With Cheese Crust
