The fourth edition of this popular book gives a new range of best-loved recipes from over forty historic Irish country houses, country hotels, and restaurants throughout the country. The establishments featured are all members of the original association of country houses, The Irish Country Houses and Restaurants Association (known as "Ireland’s Blue Book"), which is a member of the European Federation of Historic Houses, and committed to the highest standards of accommodation, food, and hospitality.
This new edition reflects changing times in the Irish hospitality industry: three of Dublin’s top restaurants are now Blue Book members, thus elegant dishes from L’Ecrivain, Chapter One and Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud are included: Classic Country / City Chic!
As in earlier editions, however, most of the recipes selected celebrate the natural riches of Irish land and sea that influence the cooking at Ireland’s finest country houses: local seafood, freshwater fish, game, fruit, vegetables, herbs, and farmhouse cheeses are all featured, often from their own gardens, farms and rivers. The recipes selected are typical of each house and vary greatly in style, yet all are clearly described for home cooks to make with confidence, with stunning original photography by the acclaimed photographer, Rai Uhlemann.
