Description: Ballykissangel, one or BBC TV's huge success stories of recent years, exudes a uniquely Irish charm and humour which have endeared the series to audiences or over 14 million people.
Now, from the heart of Ballykissangel country -- the beautiful Vale of Avoca in County Wicklow -- comes a collection of Irish recipes, both traditional and modern. Aidan Dempsey has researched and Drought up to date many wicklow and southern Irish recipes, all of which use the wonderful ingredients which are available locally -- salmon and brown trout caught in the Avoca rivers, dabs and codling off the coastlines, yearling sheep which graze on the mountain heather, and apples, blackberries, chestnuts and hazelnuts which grow in the orchards and hedgerows. The famous Irish potato isn't forgotten either, and Aidan details many different ways of cooking them, along with the traditional Colcannon.
The recipes are interspersed with gentle memories of an Irish childhood and associations with Ballykissangel scenes and characters. An accessible and entertaining introduction to Irish food and cooking, The Ballykissangel Cookbook also captures and distills the magic of a truly charming television series.
