Description: Everybody loves a fool -- especially when it's made fluffy with tangy apples or ripe fraughans. From the author of The New Irish Table comes a celebration of the Emerald Isle's classic desserts.
Spoon up lemony puddings, bite into marmalade- slathered scones, or taste fruit-filled tarts and berry-laden crumbles. Margaret Johnson's contemporary renditions of the traditional desserts of Ireland make perfect use of common staples such as oatmeal, fruit, dairy products, and, of course, good Irish whiskey. Steel-Cut Oat Pudding is enhanced with orange zest, nutmeg, and plump golden raisins. A chocolate, walnut, and caramel tart becomes a treat for grown-ups with a splash of the hard stuff. Make yours the most memorable of holidays with delectables such as mincemeat tarts, Christmas pudding, and a really good fruitcake.
Gorgeous photography transports you to the beautiful Irish countryside and its laden tables, while a glossary and source list define and locate unusual ingredients, so each pudding, pie, and syllabub tastes like it was made by your dear, sweet, old Irish grandmother. This wonderful cookbook serves up a sweet taste of the cuisine of Ireland.
