This new cookbook comes out next month, in perfect time for you to try out many of the recipes before St Patrick's Day comes around, so you can wow your family with irish recipes in new ways!
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.
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.
This is a great book, that introduces the reader, and cook, to MODERN Ireland. By taking the country regionally, the book introduces chefs who are currently the top chefs in the country, and giving you menus from their restaurants and inns. So what you really get is a mini-cultural introduction to the varying regions of Ireland. Those nuances are shown in the different dishes and the subtleties of preparation. One chef may add different ingredients to their lemon curd, for example, or prepare it differently. It's minor, but it's those subtle taste differences, that these chefs are known for. And these recipes are amazing! By using local produce, meat and seafood (which mimics the various American regions), the recipes are a true modern take on traditional dishes. And all are amazing! Some do require a bit of prep work, and cooking time, but the end results are definitely 5 star worthy at home!
This is a great book for those celebrating their Irish heritage, as a gift for a 'foodie', or just to shake up your recipes! Don't miss this one!
