September 2022: Lidl Ireland has revealed a range of Savvy Supper Club recipes created by the expert culinary team at Temple Bar’s Crow Street restaurant, that are sure to satisfy tastes buds as well as the purse strings. These recipes were featured as part of a recent Lidl Savvy Supper Club themed event hosted by Lidl ambassador Kathryn Thomas to mark the launch of Lidl’s new Go Full Lidl marketing campaign.

Go Full Lidl addresses the shopper misconception that they need to compromise on the quality and choice of their weekly shop as they feel the increasing effects of the cost-of-living crisis. As part of this campaign, Lidl revealed new research, conducted by Opinions Market Research, which found that 4 out of 5 people are changing their shopping behaviour in response to the cost-of-living crisis. This research found that 4 in 10 consumers are reducing their weekly spend on alcohol and sweets, with 3 in 10 (29%) and 1 in 5 (19%) compromising on their fresh meat and fish purchases respectively, in a bid to curb their weekly spending.

These Lidl Savvy Supper Club recipes demonstrate the high-quality food and wine that shoppers can enjoy when they do their full shop at Lidl. There is something to suit every occasion, without the need to compromise on quality, nutrition or value.
