Overview

Darina Allen is the founder and operator of the internationally renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School in Shanagarry, County Cork, Ireland. Realizing that an entire culinary tradition was in danger of being lost, she embarked on a labor of love and salvage to research, record, and preserve the history of food in Ireland. More than simply a collection of the best-loved Irish recipes, The Complete Book of Irish Country Cooking is a treatise on the history of Irish food. A fascinating peek into Irish life, it preserves and records for future generations traditional dishes that might otherwise have been lost. In this unique volume, which presents more than 300 recipes for native Irish dishes, Allen shows how the Irish live, their farming heritage, and their cooking skills. Each recipe is embellished with Allen's knowledgeable comments and amusing anecdotes, as well as her tried-and-true instructions on its preparation, updated for today's cooks. From Barm to Nettle Soup, Funeral Ham to Colcannon, Irish Soda Bread to, of course, Ballymaloe Irish Stew, this definitive compendium of the Irish culinary arts includes all the most important and delicious recipes of Ireland. Gorgeously illustrated, The Complete Book of Irish Country Cooking contains lavish photographs not only of mouthwatering concoctions but also of Ireland's beautiful landscape. A must for every kitchen bookshelf, The Complete Book of Irish Country Cooking is also a book to be read and enjoyed at leisure.

Fresh and wholesome, comfortingly nostalgic, Irish food is famous for its heartiness and flavor. Now Darina Allen--the "Queen of Irish Cooking" who cooked breakfast for President Clinton and 150 guests last St. Patrick's Day--presents more than 250 wondrous Irish recipes, from traditional festival food to manor fare.
