Set your holiday table with tradition and warmth. 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.
The New Irish Table
My first trip to Ireland was the year of the Foot and Mouth disaster. Luckily it didn't affect Ireland. I always thought fish and chips, blood sausage and MacDonald's were meals. I wanted to see what is on the menu now. The chefs give the reader a large choice of recipes. There is Duck, Salmon, Shrimp, Venison, Carrageen Moss, Lobsters, Lamb and Scallops for starting. Now the desserts such as Creme'Brulee, Berry Trifle, Cheesecakes, Panna Cotta, Steamed Pudding and Truffles to just start. I found some recipes to try. I liked this as it gives us our measures. I hope you want to choose this to start you cooking! I volunteered to read and review this book.
