With St Patrick's Day coming up, I've been thinking about celebrating my Irish heritage on my paternal grandmother's side of the family tree. I have been known to indulge in the wonderfully delicious Irish cheese available at the store here in the US, the one that talks about cows pleasantly grazing the lush green hillsides in Ireland. With loving the rich taste of the cheese, I was interested to know what other foods they serve in Ireland.

In The New Irish Table, 10 award winning Irish chefs share recipes that highlight the fresh, locally grown and seasonal ingredients from across the Emerald Isle. This book includes mouthwatering recipes along with beautiful photographs of delicious food as well as breathtaking sights in Ireland.

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 see 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.
