Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
09/30/2013
In his fourth cookbook (Recipes that Work, Great Family Food) Irish cook, Dundon once again tackles his native cuisine with a modern twist. Featuring "modern Irish country house cooking," this book takes classic Irish cuisine and allows the everyday home cook to delve into a deep cultural past of taste. From the classic dishes like "Arthurstown Fish Chowder" and "Croissant Bread and Butter Pudding," to the more adventurous "Skeaghanore Duck Breasts with Black cherries" or "Oven Baked Lobster with Dalkey Mustard Cream Sauce," there is a little something for any Irishman to enjoy. Sadly, there are few recipes here that are innovative or exciting, with only a small paragraph introducing each dish; although Dundon does include beautiful color photos on many of the pages and helpful introductions to each recipe.

Meet the Author

One of Ireland's best-loved chefs, Kevin Dundon can usually be found busy at work in the Dunbrody House kitchens and cooking school. A chef with a love of locally sourced produce, he has cooked for many well-known celebrities during his career, including Queen Elizabeth II, President Bush and Bono.

In 1994, Kevin was head-hunted to become Executive Head Chef of the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin, widely recognized as one of the most prestigious chef appointments in Ireland. In 1997, Kevin and his wife founded the Dunbrody Country House Hotel, which has become synonymous with contemporary Irish country house cooking. The award-winning hotel also hosts Kevin's cooking school.

In 2008 Kevin put his name to MGM Grand's new restaurant venture Raglan Road in downtown Disney, Orlando, establishing a fanbase in the USA. The following year saw Great Family Food hit bookstores, followed by Recipes That Work in 2010.

Over the past few years Kevin has appeared on numerous TV channels including ESPN Cable, CBC (Live) Canada, RTÉ (Live) Ireland and No Frontiers Travel Show. Kevin's profile soared in 2011 with his role as Resident Chef of RTÉ's hugely popular The Afternoon Show every week, and he is also a regular on Irish radio.

Kevin is the food ambassador for Ireland's leading supermarket chain SuperValu.
