Description: Kylemore Abbey, a magnificent turreted castle set in the lush Connemara hills overlooking a lake, is one of Ireland's top tourist attractions, with over 100,000 visitors every year. The Benedictine Nuns took over the Abbey in 1920, and since then have built up a fine tradition of hospitality, with wonderful produce from their farm and with delicious, wholesome food in their kitchen.
The Kylemore Abbey Cookbook, is a collection of the best of these recipes, old and new, many of which have provided comfort and nourishment in the good times and not-so-good times. It tries to show something of the changing face of food, whilst keeping a basic simplicity, variety, flavor and presentation, reflecting today's food style. There is honeyed trout, Michaelmas goose with potato stuffing, mussel risotto, gooseberries poached in elderflower juice, and the aptly named Resurrection pudding and Sunday fruit cake.
This book is not only a collection of practical and tasty recipes but an insight into the social history of this extraordinary Order of Nuns in their spectacular Abbey in the wilds of Connemara.
