Irish Teatime Recipes
Francis S. Walker - Illustrator

This is one of the many books in the popular Favourite Recipe series and it includes traditional favorites like Boxty bread as well as lesser known delicacies such as Ballymidland Rolls, Vicarage Cake, and Carvie cake. As one reviewer put it: “These are the forgotten recipes that your nana used to make; most of us can’t remember the ingredients, let alone the recipe!”

The Ballymaloe Cooking School has an international reputation, and this impressive new cookbook/reference makes it easy to see why. In addition to hundreds of recipes, there are dozens of technique photos illustrating some 200 essential kitchen tasks, as well as stunning color photographs of ingredients and finished dishes. Chapter introductions touch on a wide range of topics, and there are separate sections on breakfast, drinks, finger foods, and preserves of all sorts. Although this will be as valuable as a reference work as a cookbook, the text is far from dry; Allen writes with a sense of humor and a nice turn of phrase. Highly recommended. Edited and adapted from an Amazon review

Impressive collection celebrating Irish cuisine and culinary prowess. The author, who sadly just recently passed away, was a champion against stereotyping and this wonderful book well-represents his goal of elevating Irish tradition and custom to a well-deserved position of respect and admiration.

Wonderful recipes for every important date in the Irish year. This is where we found Nettle Soup and many other authentic dishes.

by Margaret Johnson

Blending Ireland’s favorite recipes with a touch of ale, stout, cider, mead or whiskey, the author creates terrific new flavor combinations such as scallops and shrimp poached in single-malt whiskey, tender brisket simmered in ale and topped with a golden cheese cobbler, and old-time pineapple upside-down cake pdated with a buttery, toffee liqueur topping, and all enhanced by Ireland's famous spirits.

Celtic Folklore Cooking

Celtic Folklore Cooking takes the guesswork out of planning a feast, with plenty of sumptuous ideas for an entire meal, from soup to dessert and even drinks to accompany your food. Consider baked trout for Beltaine or Lammas cookies for Lughnasadh. Celtic Folklore Cooking is like having centuries of Celtic tradition in your kitchen, and it will help you find just the right flavor for your festivities. Edited from a review by Brian Patterson.

West of Ireland Summers, a Cookbook
Recipes and Memories from an Irish Childhood
by Tamasin Day-Lewis

In a vivid account of summers spent in the remote beauty of west Ireland, Tamasin Day-Lewis conjures up the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of family holidays. Her passion for cooking is evident in the dishes - some traditional, others created by Day-Lewis to utilize the fresh local ingredients.

When it was originally published ten years ago, Myrtle Allen's Cooking at Ballymaloe House was hailed as an instant classic. Legions of Irish-Americans, tourists familiar with the guest house, and gourmets intrigued by an oft-neglected cuisine clamored for this ground-breaking cookbook devoted to traditional Irish dishes. Easy yet elegant recipes for Irish stew, batter-fried fish filets, mutton pies, colcannon, apple cake, and Ballymaloe's trademark brown bread did not disappoint. Now, in a completely redesigned edition, Stewart, Tabori & Chang is proud to bring this heirloom collection of recipes into the twenty-first century.

McGuire's Irish Pub
by Jesse Tirsch, McGuire Martin & Molly Martin

The place overflows with Irish hospitality and charm, just like any Irish pub-although it happens to be a 20,000-square-foot restaurant in Florida. Does such a place make real Irish food, and can it be recreated at home? Based on recipes for Soda Bread and smoky-tasting, bacon-studded Potato Soup, it is indeed possible. Written partly as a serious cookbook and partly as a souvenir for its patrons, McGuire's Irish Pub Cookbook is a bright and cheery book, packed with photos and illustrations to help bring the taste of Ireland into your very own kitchen.
