In New Irish Table, Margaret Johnson, author of The Irish Heritage Cookbook takes you on a culinary and photographic odyssey around the Emerald Isle, and her love of Ireland permeates every page. Her photographs of the Irish landscape and people are woven into the text to create an evocative and fresh view of Ireland and its food. Although foreign influences like pasta, polenta, falafel and focaccia are popular global additions to the dining scene, it is the food that reflects a genuine national identity that provides the most exciting new tastes from the Irish table. Legendary foods like oak-smoked salmon, black and white pudding, floury potatoes, brown soda bread, and fruit-filled puddings have been the fabric of Irish cooking for generations, and in this beautiful cookbook they shine even more brilliantly. The book is divided into five chapters: hors d'oeuvres and party fare, starters, main courses, side dishes, and desserts and includes more than 75 inspired and innovative recipes. The New Irish Table offers new tastes from the Irish table and deliciously defines what Irish cuisine is today. Bain taitneamh as do bheilel Bon appetit.
