This is a great educational book on a part of Irish culture, St. Patrick's Day, and delicious Irish recipes that are hard to resist. The book starts out with the history of St. Patrick and how the parades, which are instrumental in celebrating St Patrick's Day, have evolved over the past few centuries. Interesting background on something I have known about most of my life but had not researched at all. This overview was helpful and enjoyable to read about.Now to the recipes. As mentioned they look delicious. Several of the recipes have pictures which really increased my interest in Irish food. I plan to prepare a meal this weekend with friends. I am going to start with the Open smoked salmon sambo for the appetizer and Bacon and Cabbage for the main course. I am going to make Irish soda bread as aside which I absolutely love to eat and finish the meal off with Rhubarb Crumble.I found this book to be educational on some Irish customs with the bonus of learning how to make the Irish meals I have been eating in restaurants for years. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Irish culture and food. Highly recommended.
I found this to be a very interesting cookbook! The author starts the book with a history of St. Patrick's Day, info on St. Patrick and how the holiday is celebrated in Ireland. Then we come to recipes!Lots of delicious sounding traditional Irish dishes in various categories. I found it fascinating that the Irish don't eat corned beef and cabbage for the holiday like we do here in the United States. They like bacon and cabbage instead. That is something that I never knew. There is a recipe for leek and potato soup that I will be trying very soon! Beef and Guinness pie sounded yummy too. There were quite a few recipes that I plan on trying.If you like to cook, this is a great Irish cookbook that I would definitely recommend!
Even though I'm not Irish, I was surrounded by Irish people and culture throughout my early years. I lived in a totally Irish neighborhood, was taught by Sisters of Mercy (an Irish order of Nuns) and grew up on Irish food.St Patrick's Day was a major holiday. There were parades and St. Patrick's Concerts in every Catholic school in the city and we attended them all. Once I got married and moved away, all that background was left behind.When I saw this book, I just had to pick it up. It's been a great walk down memory lane. The recipes really brought me back to my childhood. Now my only problem is what to choose for my St. Patrick's Day menu.
Along with the authentic recipes in this book, there are some insights from a true Irishman. For example: "Also, no-one in Ireland eats corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day or any other day really, the dish we eat is bacon and cabbage and I have the recipe in this book."Reading this book and planning my St. Patrick's Day dinner, I'm leaning towards the Smoked Salmon Sambo as an appetizer, the Fish Pie as the main course, either the Colcannon or the Champ as the side dish and the Irish Bread and Butter Pudding for dessert.
Take me home Ailesbury Road to the place I belong, Country Kerry, Ballymoney, take me home country road.Put your previous ideas aside and learn how the Irish really celebrate St Patrick's Day. Although celebrations on March 17, the day St Patrick died, happen all over the world, the very first one was actually in Boston and not in Ireland. Residents of Boston wanted to celebrate their Irish heritage. Nowdays St Patrick's Day is part of a 5 day celebration of parades and fun showcasing Irish music and culture and attracting millions of visitors.So pop on your Corrs CD or some Westlife and get ready...and by the way, forget corned beef and cabbage, it's bacon and cabbage - cop on!There is something very down to earth and warming about Irish food and it reminds me of my youth before the fancy days of pastas and pestos. No, I'm not ancient, was just brought up on stews, potatoes, leeks, cottage pie and soda bread. The Colcannon is a new staple for me as is the Fish Pie and the Beef and Guinness Pie is a Friday Night special after a long cold winter work week. Not forgetting the Bailey's Dessert which I could easily eat nightly. Fail safe Irish recipes which are nourishing and filling.I loved this book and actually writing this has made me feel hungry...I'd better see what's in the fridge.
I downloaded this book because every year at St. Patrick's day, I make green food, but I always make the same things every year. Now, after reading this book, I will try some more traditional Irish recipes. Definitely trying the Dublin Bay prawns and the irish soda bread and the bread and butter pudding! They sound so yummy! I may still have to throw a little green food coloring into my leek and potato soup, thought, just for our family tradition... Thanks!
Loved the Book, but I imagine being a 10th generation Irish descendant who knew very little about traditional Irish recipes. I loved the descriptions of various foods and the Irish names for them. Great book...well worth the read and follow with making the recipes.
