Product Overview

Peoplein Ireland are sometimes mortified by what Americans think of as ?Irish food.? That?sbecause the real thing is much subtler and more delicious than any platter ofovercooked corned beef and mushy cabbage could ever be. Real Irish food isbrown soda bread so moist it barely needs the yolk-yellow butter; fragrantapple tarts with tender, golden crusts; rich stews redolent of meaty gravy andsweet carrots; crisp-edged potato cakes flipped hot from a skillet directlyonto the plate. Forget meatloaf or mac and cheese?this stuff is the original comfort food.

RealIrish Foodis the firstcomprehensive cookbook to bring classic Irish dishes to America with an eye forAmerican kitchens and cooks, and with tips and tricks to help reproduce Irishresults with American ingredients. Transform plain white fish by baking it withgrated sharp cheese, mustard, and crumbs. Discover that celery takes on newlife when sliced, simmered in chicken stock, and served in a lightly thickenedsauce.
