The Scottish-Irish Hearth & Pub Cookbook
Recipes and Lore from Celtic Kitchens
by Kay Shaw Nelson

This book is easy, warm, and satisfying. Reminds me of home with family, friends, good food and good conversations. If you like good "pub" feel, buy the book. Amazon reviewer

We haven't read this book - yet. It does sound intriguing. Included are recipes, cures and folklore all provided by beekeepers.

Darina Allen has reissued "A Simply Delicious Christmas". It's a chatty cookbook, annotated with brief childhood tales of making the pudding and suggestions for how best to enjoy the food. But it's also filled with smart tips, such as a guide to the recipes indicating how long before the holidays each dish can be prepared, and suggestions for edible gifts, from truffles to jams. The range of recipes is impressive, with alternate versions of several recipes provided to accommodate fussier eaters. All the traditional favorites are here, along with many new ideas for fabulous holiday entertaining.

If you're looking for a bread cookbook with recipes that are different than the usual bread recipes, this is an excellent choice. My search for an authentic Irish Soda Bread recipe met with success when I found it here. And the Orange Butter Scones are a MUST. They are melt in your mouth delicacies. The instructions are easy to follow, once you look at the glossary and decipher the different types of sugar. (For castor sugar, just use regular granulated sugar.) Enjoy!

The New Irish Table
by Margaret Johnson

Margaret Johnson’s love of Ireland permeates page after glorious page of mouthwatering Irish dishes, from Smoked Salmon Chowder to Raspberry Buttermilk Tarts. Lavish color photographs of the food, the landscapes, and the people are woven through the text, making The New Irish Table the next best thing to sitting down to dinner in Ireland itself.

Celtic Folklore and Cooking
by Joanne Asala

Feast days, festivals, and informal gatherings all have something in common--food. But choosing the right food for the occasion can be difficult. 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. Joanne Asala gathers generations-old recipes from Wales, Cornwall, Scotland, Ireland, and England, associates them with appropriate festivals and times of the year, then sprinkles a dash of folklore between them. Perhaps you would like to learn the 400-year-old "Song of Harvest Home" while making Marigold Buns? 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. Review by Brian Patterson
Click here for Folklore & Cooking.

With simple ingredients and easy to follow instructions, these recipes will help the home chef create a rich, plentiful feast! Among the 200 recipes are classics like Irish Stew, as well as Mince Pie, which Oliver Cromwell unsuccessfully attempted to ban because of its then-religious Irish shape. Each of the eleven chapters that puts the food into its context - whether its prepared for a celebration, to welcome guests - or even to seduce! Info' from back cover.

Ballymaloe Seasons
by Darina Allen

A wonderful collection of 125 recipes, including Irish classics, accompanied by 270 color photos and a series of short essays about the changing seasons and how they affect the landscape and gardens surrounding Ballymaloe Cookery School in County Cork.
NOTE: It's out of print but there are a dozen new and used copies available for as little $3.00! We, ourselves, have bought several books through sellers on amazon's marketplace and have always experienced excellent service.
So, if you're interested in adding Darina's book to your collection, please click Ballymaloe Seasons.


The Irish Heritage Cookbook
by Margaret Johnson

The Irish stew tastes just like it did in a pub in Ireland. My sons love the Guinness beef stew. My co-workers have borrowed it to make some of the recipes as well. And tonight, I'm making the oatmeal apple crisp. Even if you are not Irish, you'll wish you were after eating some of these delicious meals. Amazon reviewer

Over 200 pages, with way more than a drop devoted to Irish!
Click for Whiskey

Along with a detailed account of whiskey, food and wine, the author also explores Ireland's other great gift to the drinking world - stout, or, as Joyce called it, "the sacred pint," providing a history of the brew as well as an overview of the popular brands. The volume also includes a chapter on Waterford crystal, a selection of Irish toasts, and a recipe for Irish coffee. It's out of print, but last time we looked, there were more than a dozen available on amazon starting as low as $1.50! Oh, and we bought one (too good and too cheap to pass by).
