Ten award-winning chefs dismantle the stereotype of Irish cuisine being a boil, a fry, or soda bread. Highlighting fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients from provinces across the Emerald Isle, this beautiful, photo-illustrated collection offers inspirational Irish recipes.
An Irish meal must nourish the soul as well as the body, teasing each of the senses. Home cooks are invited into each featured chef’s restaurant and/ or home to experience recipes that utilize fresh fish, lamb, beef, pork, fruits, and vegetables, and of course, Ireland’s renowned cheeses.
Starred-studded contributors include Kevin Dundon (host of PBS’s Kevin Dundon’s Modern Irish Table), Darina Allen (founder of the Ballymaloe Cookery School), and Neven Maguire (celebrity chef and TV personality).
Celebrating the new Irish food culture, this compilation emphasizes local resources, simple fare, and the highest standards, proving that Ireland is a modern food destination.
Another great cookbook, but this time about Irish cuisine. There is also some information about Ireland, and its food traditions. Moreover, the book has plenty of great pictures.
The book contains recipes from all over Ireland, and there is something for everyone. As the blurb says, the recipes are provided by professional chefs. It was a pleasure to read this book, and I discovered new recipes.
As with all cookbooks, I recommend this book as a hardcover or paperback, and not as an e-book. It is easier to read it in print.
I recommend this book to all food lover, as well as to people who are interested in Ireland as a country.
