The regions, the restaurants, and the recipes of Ireland’s top chefs.
Ireland’s cuisine has gotten a bad rap over the years, conjuring images of over-boiled meats and vegetables, artery-clogging fry-ups, and lots and lots of soda bread. But the new Irish food culture has changed greatly. Today, fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients are used to make mouthwatering and sophisticated meals that satisfy and inspire.
In this photographic journey of Ireland’s provinces, readers are invited into the kitchens of ten of Ireland’s top award-winning chefs to experience the recipes that make them stand out. Celebrating simple fare and emphasizing local resources, these chefs are proving that Ireland is a contemporary food destination.
Gorgeous photos of both food and landscape capture the imagination—and the appetite—and make you long for green hills, good craic, and heartwarming meals. Perfect for the kitchen counter or the coffee table, The New Irish Table is a welcoming invitation to today’s Ireland.
