New in paperback, Fall 2016!


Ireland's rich culinary heritage is being rediscovered. Irish food has always been thought of as rustic and filling-hearty comfort food to get you through a cold winter-but a new strand of cooking is emerging, still based on Ireland's rural heritage and favorite ingredients, but with a modern twist. A new wave of artisanal producers is bringing a variety of high-quality ingredients to a wider market-from the freshest wild salmon and oysters to award-winning marsh-fed lamb, farmhouse cheeses, and whiskey. Delis, supermarkets, and gourmet food stores around the world are stocking and celebrating Irish fare for the first time, and the movement for seasonal Irish home cooking is gaining momentum.

Written by accomplished Irish food writer Nuala Cullen, The Best of Irish Country Cooking takes a new look at traditional Irish fare. It is filled with mouthwatering, user-friendly recipes, seasonal cooking suggestions, festive Irish traditions, and gorgeous scenes of Ireland's unspoiled landscapes. Seafood and vegetables feature heavily alongside time-honored favorites like Irish Stew, Pork and Apple Pie, and Christmas Pudding in the book's six chapters (Appetizers, Soups, Mains, Sides and Salads, Desserts, Baking, and Preserves). There's even an Irish cocktail recipe dating back to the 18th century!

With lush photography and over 100 traditional, contem­porary, and seasonal recipes, The Best of Irish Country Cooking is an essential guide to classic Irish cooking today.

Nuala Cullen is a freelance food writer and author of Savoring Ireland, Irish Egg Cookbook and Irish Soups and Breads, as well as numerous newspaper articles. She was a contributing author to Women in Early Modern Ireland. She has a special interest in food in an historical context and has acted as a consultant for television, radio, banquets and various publications. She is also a founding member of the Irish Food Writers Guild. She lives in Dublin with her family.
