It is a healthy staple, economical, easy to make and can feed a lot of hungry mouths around a table.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic Irish Stew February 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of the reasons I buy ethnic cookbooks is to get a real flavor of not just the food, but the culture. A sense of place. Make Irish Stew as The Irish Do gives me that.

When reading this cookbook I imagine cooking with a big cooking pot overlooking the green green fields.

Maggie O'Farrell doesn't just toss up some recipes. She gives a more in depth explanation of the traditional Irish Stew, along with variations and serving suggestions. I love her description of the "lowly carrot". Even if you are not a cook at all, perhaps a historian or a cultural anthropologist (or all three) this short book will fascinate you.

If you're looking for an authentic taste of Ireland, buy this book and explore the Irish Stew in all it's glory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Job February 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is easy to read and contains some history of the stew and the ingredients.

The author won a place in my heart when she said "you won't be using any thickening ingredients in your stew (forbidden)." It can be more challenging to work without flour or cornstarch to thicken, but I have found it does make a difference when I make the effort.

There is a table of contents (hyperlinked) and some care and thought went into the organization and presentation of this book. The text is clear, the instructions are solid, and I can certainly appreciate the value of a book focused on a single dish that has some real thought and effort behind it. There is a recipe and instructions for making stock, and an additional recipe for Irish Mash, as well.

There are a few typos here and there, but nothing that interferes with comprehension.

I enjoyed reading this one and I'll be keeping it - I don't buy lamb very often, but if I ever see it on sale, this is the recipe I'll turn to!

More About the Author

Hi there, Maggie here thanks for dropping by. So, you would like to know a little bit about me. Great. Well I am Irish! First generation born and bred. I live in a lovely small city (the smallest in Ireland called Kilkenny).

I am a teacher, and I teach Domestic Science (also known as cookery but the subject does cover all things domestic) and I also teach the Irish language. I teach teenagers who have the ability to drive me completely mad while at the same time stimulate me and keep me on my toes.

To keep me sane, I also enjoy writing about Irish culture more specifically, the role of food in Irish culture, past and present.

So, along with recipes you get the history of the dish and much more. It is a wonderful experience to cook a dish, knowing and understanding where it came from and how it evolved over the years. When biting into your food, you can feel more connected to it.

I hope you enjoy my work and learn a little more about us Irish along the way.


(pronounced 'slawn che') and it means 'Good Health To You'
