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.
I absolutely feel in love with this book The New Irish Table. It’s broken down by regions then by chefs. There is history of the regions with in the book with stunning pictures of scenery not just the food. The recipes are completely attainable to make at home but have some amazing flavors. The first recipe to catch my eye was the Beef and Wicklow Wolf Stout Casserole with Dumplings. The picture made me honestly drool.
I am a sucker for anything with a stout gravy. This was the first on my list to make. Second recipe was jut one page over with the apple and mango crumble. This dessert simple combined one of my favorite fruits along with one of my husbands. I would have never thought to merry the two together. It’s just recipe after recipe of goodness. What I love is this author’s passion for the countryside. I immediately felt swept away to Ireland. Definitely not leaving my nightstand!
