More About This Item


In Irish folk legend, the hero, mystic and warrior-king Fionn MacCumhaill acquired his great knowledge by tasting a sacred salmon from the Boyne River. Similarly, it is hoped that Traditional Irish Cooking will inspire a tantalizing taste for both Ireland and its celebrated cuisine.

Traditional Irish Cooking is not just an ordinary book of recipes, but also gives an insight into the Irish way of life. Containing around 100 recipes and 21 sauce recipes, it includes both traditional and classic dishes, as well as several 'nouvelle Irish cuisine' recipes, endeavouring to combine the best of local ingredients in a more exotic and imaginative manner than that of classic country cuisine. Each of these recipes is accompanied by an anecdote to give the reader a flavour of Irish life: vivid descriptions of unfamiliar ingredients; quotes on food; restaurant and pub descriptions; local points of interest connected with food; short literary extracts; potted biographies of well-known Irish characters; and details on stout, porter, ale cider and whiskey.

Reviews
'This book is a great mix of traditional and classic Irish dishes as well as giving us a glimpse into the newer trends towards the more exotic. There are plenty of recipes to tempt both the vegetarian and the committed meat-eater.' - Mostly Food Journal

'A small, collectible cook book for anyone with Irish inclinations. Although it has no pictures, the text tells the history of the various types of food, giving great insight to the people, the country, and the history.' - Editorial Review
