Description: As befits a country with an economy based largely on agricultural products and cattle, Ireland today has a worldwide reputation for good food, and good food with a difference, as the Irish still find time to eat at leisure, and use the occasion as an excuse to enjoy the art of conversation.
Ireland has an abundance of natural food resources: butter, eggs and milk; high quality beef from her vast, green pastures; top quality mutton, lamb and ham; and the salmon and trout which teem in a thousand lakes and rivers. Her surrounding seas yield a rich harvest of oysters, shrimp and all manner of seafood. The boglands and moorlands abound in pheasant, grouse, woodcock, plover and snipe.
Ireland's reputation for good food is no small wonder, for it is based on a heritage which includes the great roasting ovens of the banqueting halls of Tara of the Kings, and the great bronze boiling cauldrons and pottery food vessels of the Celtic people.
Having drawn on a wide variety of sources, including family and friends, Helen Walsh has put together this fascinating collection of recipes. Easy to follow and well-suited to the modern-day kitchen, they distil in a colorful, informative and anecdotal way all that is best in a domestic art that is simply, uniquely and distinctively Irish.
