I purchased this cookbook just when I was starting to cut my teeth on Irish cuisine. I could not have picked a better one. The recipes are all very simple and easy to follow with beautiful photographs to help whet your appetite while you prep!The resulting food is just fabulous, everything bit as delicious as the recipes and photos promise. Little bits of folklore and serving suggestions accompany each recipe. The menu ranges from hearty soups and appetizers, to delectable main courses and vegetables, all the way to scrumptious desserts.There are nearly 30 traditional recipes at which to try your hand, such as Beef in Stout with Herb Dumpling, Fisherman's Pie, Colcannon, Irish Soda Bread, Barm Brack, Leek & Potato Soup, and Irish Cream Cheesecake. Try one, try them all, serve them to friends and family. A must for St. Patty's Day feasts and parties, or any day when you feel like getting your Irish on.All in all, a fantastic book to learn from and return to time and again for savory, delicious dishes you'll never tire of. Erin go Bragh!
Every recipe I've tried from this cookbook has been easy to follow and turned out really well. It's a fairly small cookbook and definitely doesn't cover all of Irish cuisine, but to me it comes across as what you might find in a nice restaurant's menu. Big plus is that every recipe has a photo. One thing I also really appreciate is that the ingredients generally aren't exotic, and I can find easy substitutes for the ones that are (for example, whitefish fillets in the Fisherman's Pie).
I purchased this at a discount dollar store. The layout and pictures are very appealing, and the recipes seemed simple enough. I used several of the recipes today and I have to say I'm very glad I picked up this book! I made the leek & potato soup, Colcannon, and the Potato, Leek & Chicken pie. All the ingredients are easy to come by, the instructions are clear and so far everything turned out great! I'm looking forward to making more recipes. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to try some Irish pub cuisine.
RECEIPTS are just super . But be very careful : they have the same book with a different name " Irish pub cookbook ". These are the same books with slightly different titles. I unknowingly purchased both books. So upset that this wasn't told to us that they were the same it was hard to give a good summary on the terrific receipes. Yes, they were great with easily found ingredients, with clear instructions. You will not be disappointed BUT only buy one not like me. They undoubtedly won't print my reviews, but if they do I wanted you to know what happened to me.
this was pretty good but most of it i already can make. i sort of thought i would find some new things in it but not everyone is irish like my family here in the states. if you are looking for some yummy meals buy it its worth it great pics and everything. i just already make all of it is all.
I like it but don't think I would make many of the recipes. It does make for a good read. I found a lot of the information on the recipe to be interesting. I am looking for an irish cookbook for everyday food that Irish family's eat. Still looking. These recipes are more contemporary than traditional. I did like the Oatmeal & Potato Bread and the Barm Brack recipes. Those were delicious.
The photos are great in this cookbook and the recipes seem all right. I have only made a few of them and they were good, nothing too earth-shattering but this is standard Irish pub fare so I did not expect it to be. I would have preferred a little more substance to the book but it was a really good price and compliments my other Irish cookbooks quite well. Definitely worth the money.
Good recipes, fit my need. Wanted a recipe for Irish Soda Bread and it has a good one. Bought as a gift for my Irish brother in law, and he is enjoying it.
