Title: The New Irish Table – Recipes from Ireland’s Top Chefs

Author: Leslie Conron Carola

Genre: Travel, Cooking, Food & Wine


Book Blurb:

Ten award-winning chefs dismantle the stereotype of Irish cuisine being a boil, a fry, or soda bread. Highlighting fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients from provinces across the Emerald Isle, this beautiful, photo-illustrated collection offers inspirational Irish recipes.


An Irish meal must nourish the soul as well as the body, teasing each of the senses. Home cooks are invited into each featured chef’s restaurant and/ or home to experience recipes that utilize fresh fish, lamb, beef, pork, fruits, and vegetables, and of course, Ireland’s renowned cheeses.


Celebrating the new Irish food culture, this compilation emphasizes local resources, simple fare, and the highest standards, proving that Ireland is a modern food destination.


My Review:

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, my thoughts gravitate towards Irish food and my Irish ancestors. I came across this cookbook and was instantly intrigued.


Filled with amazing recipes paired with photographs that make you drool, this cookbook is a must-own. These award-winning chefs invite the reader into their kitchens where they share their culinary expertise in Irish cuisine. I loved the recipes, though they are more geared for experienced cooks.


Ireland is home to some of the best chefs in the world and in this book, the Emerald Isle is clearly a culinary destination spot. This book makes a great gift, especially for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
