Irish Traditional Cooking: Over 300 Recipes from Ireland's Heritage by Darina Allen

Ireland’s rich culinary heritage is brought to life in this new edition of Darina’s bestselling Irish Traditional Cooking. With 300 traditional dishes, including 100 new recipes, this is the most comprehensive and entertaining tome on the subject. Each recipe is accompanied with tips, tales, historical insights and common Irish customs, many of which have been passed down from one generation to the next. Darina’s fascination with Ireland’s culinary heritage is illustrated with chapters on Broths & Soups, Fish, Game, Vegetables and Cakes & Biscuits. She uses the finest of Ireland’s natural produce to give us recipes such as Sea Spinach Soup, Potted Ballycotton Shrimps with Melba Toast and Rhubarb Fool. First published nearly twenty years ago, and now extensively revised and updated, this new edition allows Darina Allen to share her enthusiasm for Ireland's fresh, wholesome, seasonal food with a new generation of cooks.

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!
