Excellent source of authentic Irish recipes
This is a great cookbook. While it may not have flashy glossy photos like Margaret Johnson's line of traditional Irish cookbooks, Darina's cookbook more than makes up for it. It is organized extremely well by chapters such as fowl, lamb, wild game, beef, pudding (not the dessert kind!), breads, potatoes, vegetables, etc... I found the recipes were not overly complicated yet Darina gives great storylike instructions. No exotic or hard to find ingredients either. I like that in certain cases, she presents quite a few recipes for a specific food item, like different types of irish stews, different soda breads, etc... The variations are not overwhelming and it is only for a select few types of food that she does this. Sporadically through the book she does include beautiful color pictures and full length one-page essays on a variety of topics related to Irish cookery. A great addition to your cookbook library!
