4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow recipes + a searchable index January 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this book for two reasons. First, the price was unbeatable as it was then listed in the free downloads section. Second, I love to try recipes from other parts of the world. So I decided to give this book of Irish recipes a try.

From the technical side of things, the book is well formatted. There is a searchable table of contents located at the end of the book. The book contains the following sections - Vegetables (7 recipes), Breads (6 recipes), Soups (6 recipes), Entrees (7 recipes), and Desserts (7 recipes). The recipes appear easy to follow with clearly written directions and a list of ingredients. I read where one reviewer said there's a missing ingredient in one of the recipes, but I haven't located any other glaring omissions or typos myself.

I have already tried the recipe for the Creamy Carrot Soup and quite enjoyed it. If you have picky eaters who claim to hate vegetables, you might be able to persuade them to eat this carrot soup. The taste and texture were excellent. (FYI - While I followed the recipe and directions given in the book, I made the dish "lighter" by substituing half and half for the heavy cream and low-calorie margarine for the butter. The end result was still delicious.) I'm already looking forward to trying more recipes from this book. Up next is another new-for-me recipe, the strawberry bread!

I am usually reluctant to accept book review copies from authors. I've had too many disappointments. But Bryan Bowers' e-book cookbooks seemed straightforward enough, and looking at his website made me feel as though I found a kindred soul. I cheerfully accepted his offer of _Irish Recipes: Mouthwatering Meals Direct From The Emerald Isle_, and I'm glad I did.

The Kindle cookbook is a collection of 30 recipes that are "the usual suspects" for home-style Irish cooking. There's nothing astonishing here, nothing that'll make you say, "That's an interesting twist on an old standard." This _is_ the old standard, which is a very good thing if you want to cook dinner the way Grandma did (assuming Grandma was Irish. My Jewish grandma boiled _everything_, so much so that my father never had a roast beef until he was 18. But I digress.)

This is obviously a self-published work, and Bowers does some things that a formal editor might query. For example, so far I've made his recipe for Colcannon (which is mashed potatoes, leeks, and cabbage, with milk and butter). It's tummy-satisfying comfort food. But he calls for "3 medium potatoes, quartered and peeled" and I might have appreciated an eensy bit more guidance. Potatoes can vary in size so much that adding "about 12 ounces total" would have been helpful. (I had fingerlings on hand... hmm, how much should I use?) There's also no illustrations at all, which I know bothers some cooks.

Yet I _like_ this cookbook. You might argue that you could find plenty of recipes for baked brown bread, boxty, and cottage pie with a quick Internet search. That's true -- assuming you are looking for something specific, rather than, "Hmm, what shall I make tonight?" So if you have a mild interest in Irish cooking, I think this is a very good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Irish Cookbook With Original Family Recipes! January 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Authentic Irish family recipes! I grew up on the South Side of Chicago (Go Sox!) in a neighborhood that was mostly Irish. I had a lot of dinners with Irish neighbors and some of the recipes in Bryan Bowers' book were familiar. Others I had never heard of but they sound so good I'm going to make them in my home. Irish cooking is all about hearty comfort food. I remember having Champ (mashed potatoes with milk & scallions), homemade soda bread, Irish Potato Soup, Cottage Pie and Apple Cake. There are other Irish recipes in this book that sound so good and I know I'll make them: Boxty (potato pancakes), Nana's Scones, Vegetable and Sausage Soup, Creamy Carrot Soup, Crusty Roast Lamb, Apple Oatmeal Crisp and Chess Pie.

This book is well-written. The introduction to each recipe is informative. The recipe instruction are clearly laid out. And there are some beautiful pictures of some of the food. Highly recommend!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Irish Cookbook - Recommend March 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very good collection of traditional Irish recipes, presented in a well organized and easy to follow format. Each recipe is accompanied by the author's comments and very easy to follow directions. I was surprised by large percentage of bread recipes and there are, as expected, a lot recipes containing potatoes.

A very enjoyable cookbook!

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes me back! January 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I lived in Ireland for a couple of years when I was a teenager so was keen to revisit some Irish recipes. The book and title caught my eye and I'm glad they did! I'm working my way through the potato section just now, with the scrumptious looking cakes next on the list, and the rest to come over the next week or two to my eagerly waiting family!

I also enjoyed the way Bryan Bowers adds some history or a story to each recipe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hope the author reads his reviews January 25, 2012

I like this book I really do. I was looking through a few of the recipes and found a problem. In the coffee cake recipe it lists the ingredients then how to make it. When combining the ingredients it say to add buttermilk. Hmmmmmm. Didn't see buttermilk listed in the ingredients. Hopefully they look through and see if there are any other descries. Otherwise this a great cookbook.

It's a short book. The recipes seem to be authentic. They can be found in other books. The price is much lower than other cookbooks with Irish recipes.
