"Lovers of Irish fare will appreciate traditional takes on favorites such as Lickeen colcannon, rabbit pie, and brown soda bread. But the book includes international dishes such as basil pesto, hummus, pizza muffins, and chicken curry. The recipes are sandwiched between an interesting narrative of the association and the key players in it over the past century. Fortunately for American readers, the recipes list U.S. as well as metric measurements, and nearly all ingredients are readily available.. . . fans of Irish food and history will be well served by checking it out.” —Booklist
