In Clodagh’s Kitchen Diaries, Clodagh McKenna has created an essential cook’s companion, taking you through a cooking yeareach month is loosely based on an event, place, or activity in Clodagh’s life, like January’s super foods, April in New York, and October’s Christmas preparations and Halloween. Packed with advice on what to eat when and tips for preserving the harvest, her mouth-watering yet deliciously fuss-free recipes include dinner party menus to impress, monthly soups, salads, sandwiches and vegetable specials from her restaurant; and cakes for occasions such as Mother’s Day, Easter, and Christmas. Think Red Velvet Cakes for Valentine’s Day, Orange and Cardamom Pancakes for Mardi Gras, and Fish of the Month dishes like Pan-Roasted Lemon and Basil Salmon. From winter movie suppers to summer barbecues, Clodagh has the perfect recipe for every occasion in this fantastic guide to seasonal food you’ll turn to time and time again.
But she does pay homage to Guinness, the quintessential Irish stout, with adorable espresso-infused chocolate mousse spooned into clear shot glasses and brimming with foam okay, whipped heavy cream. You won’t have the hangover to regret, only the calories.
The book also takes you through the rest of the year (and occasionally around the globe), with seasonal, healthy recipes such as potted shrimp and lemon shortbread for a summer picnic, spiced apple chutney in the fall, and orange and cinnamon mince pie roulades for Christmas.
